As for the number of severe and critically ill patients now Thailand is the 6th largest in the world, the 3rd in Asia, and the 1st in Southeast Asia.
Comparing the intensity of overall measures to manage the COVID-19 outbreak, we can see from the Stringency index in the image from Ourworldindata. that the concentration is at the same level as with two ripples at the end of last year and the beginning of last year and less than the first wave While the current epidemic situation would know very well how heavy and serious So it’s no surprise that the results in epidemic control are showing off.
If it continues like this would be difficult to manage and have the opportunity to continue to extend People in the country can’t stand the distance. and will greatly affect the social and economic status and there will be chaos in society If there is a point where everyone can’t take it Not just the health system but will become all sectors
Therefore, the state should urgently review the existing policies and measures. Accept the fact that it is not effective enough.
Modify policy and academic mechanisms
Modify the country’s core vaccine policy to focus on the procurement and use of highly effective vaccines.
adjust measures Aims to break the national epidemic cycle by the end of the year. Full national lockdown is essential.
Should use the loan that is available to support But should not be used to stimulate the economy like the past.
should announce the austerity policy Reduce the import of luxury items. and campaign to use domestic resources
For people like all of us Please have the strength to protect yourself and your family from infection.
Wear a mask. Two layers. The inner layer is a mask. The outer layer is a cloth mask, very important.
with love and care
