139 in Loei province - up 50% from yesterday, and up rather more from steady single figures a month ago.

You are saying what I thought was certain to happen. For the first few days, the reported cases of this variant's trajectory mirrored that of the UK, and once TH hit 2k for "O", I was convinced that it would be 10K by that weekend, and 100k by the next weekend, but it has yet reach 9K in any day.

When I make a prediction like that and it goes so disastrously wrong, I look for an explanation. I think there are three major factors. The first is that since it started winning the battle against Delta, it's done a pretty good job. I don't necessarily believe the accuracy of the figures put out bt the TH gov, but even if the true figures were double what is being reported, it is still a small fraction of what the UK with a similar population, is reporting.

The second factor I think has been the TH people themselves and the self-discipline they have shown in most cases.

But most importantly, they did not have Boris Johnson
