COVID-19 : THAILAND RANKS #1 IN THE WORLD FOR ONGOING COVID-19 RECOVERY
Thailand is ranked #1 in the world for its ongoing COVID-19 recovery effort. According to the Global COVID-19 Index (GCI) Thailand received an index score of 82.06, putting it on top of the global chart as an example of best practices in tackling the ongoing global pandemic. As of today (10 August 2020), the number of confirmed cases in Thailand stood at 3,351, with 133 currently being treated, while 3,160 have recovered and 58 have died.
The Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o-cha thanked all the Thai people for their discipline, strength, patience and efforts to prevent the spread of the viral epidemic (Covid-19.) it is probably fair to say that Thailand has emerged victorious in the fight against the COVID-19 outbreak with far fewer community spread infections and fatalities than expected. While there is no clear explanation for this, several theories have been floated: warmer weather, ethnic differences, cultural preference for not shaking hands and hugging, the prevalence of mask wearing in December 2019 and January 2010 because of high levels of PM 2.5 pollution around Thailand, and the effectiveness of the government’s response to the crisis. The index is calculated from two parts: The objective of the first parameter is to confirm the number of positive cases on a per capita basis in regard to the size of the country. The second criteria are the per capita death rate of each country in comparison to its population size.
The remaining 30% consists of a fixed score derived from the World Health Security Index (GHS), initiated by the Johns Hopkins University, experts in global public health, infectious disease, and emergency preparedness have been at the forefront of the international response to COVID-19. GHS is funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and was developed to assess each country’s readiness to cope and deal with the COVID-19 outbreak.
The Thai government credits Thailand’s robust health security system as largely responsible for the kingdom’s success. In particular, the willingness of politicians to let health experts call the shots; the coordination and cooperation between government departments, as well as provincial and local bodies across the country, and the clarity of communications to the public about how to avoid disease transmission. The government also highlighted the work of more than 1,000 epidemiological teams across the country, who were able to investigate every single case, trace every contact, and monitor them for 14 days.
