Efficacy is short-lived.  The turnaround for Thailand getting supply and people fully vaccinated is going to be like 3 years.  By the time everyone is vaccinated the majority of people will be unprotected....d/t waning immunity.  The solution: let this virus run rampant.  Some 80 year old expats are going to die.  Who cares- they were going to die very soon anyways from obesity and the pub.

Let's not blame commercial institutions for making some money by getting vaccines that many are happy to pay for, as they couldn't get a vaccine from the government yet or refuse their choice.

Surely the government made no money from spending tax-payers money, no brown envelopes, no new cars and absolutely no favours from the CCP for buying overly expensive ineffective dishwater. 

Do I even need to add a sarcasm emoji?
