Your post is useful, Comrade. You need to cite your sources to truly make a difference.
You might want to consider who your audience is. You might want to consult The Chicago Manual of Style before you open your mouth and speak what is going to be unintelligible drivel to the people here.
That said, I agree with you, Comrade.
Didn't we see a report of how effective Sinovak is. So the minister in charge said we are that confident we have bought enough to inoculate the population. Then we got please do not purchase this Chinese Vaccine.
If the intent was to reassure the public and to build confidence, the gentleman has failed. The information as provided is truthful, but it is neither helpful nor presented in the appropriate context. Because the public is aware that the Chinese vaccine is significantly less effective than the new mRNA based vaccines and that the Astra Zeneca vaccine will not provide full protection, the public will not listen. Instead, they will reject the information and many will hesitate to take the vaccine(s).
The lack of clarity and the inability to deliver a transparent and honest message is what undermines the vaccine effort. It's not a failing exclusive of Thailand, but is seen all over the world. Governments are so afraid of being honest about the vaccines and their limitations that they offer doublespeak and babble.
“If the re-opening plan moves forward and [if] the country can control the outbreak more effectively, leading the EU to place Thailand back on the safe travel list, we can expect a surge in demand of 20 – 30% at the end of the year.”
Ha ha ha. Too funny. ROTFLMAO. Ha ha ha.
