From my point of view it is clear that the Thai Government actually is trying to protects its people by delaying and postponing the vaccines. It was their strategy from the beginning, obviously.
At first they didn’t ordered any vaccines, until being pushed by media and the society.
Then they didn’t imported mRNA-vaccines, until what? Right, until being pushed by the media and the society.
I remember a video from Anutin from March or April 2020, where he said Corona would just be a flu. Until what? Exactly, until being pushed back by the media and the society.
The Daily let's bash TT users post.
If TAT were to propose that tourists must wear government-controlled exploding thought collars, I think you would be on here demanding their use and extolling their virtues.

The Government officials represent only the privileged rich who have no idea of the suffering of the poor locals who are struggling just to survive (and don't care anyway) .
