It has been several months now since COVID-19 spread worldwide and most countries are struggling to cope with it.
Some countries have initiated lockdowns while economies slow down.
Recently, on July 24, 2020, Thailand topped the record number of recoveries according to GCI (Global COVID-19 Index).
The recovery rate of the country increased between 81.15% to 81.55%, surpassing countries like South Korea, Latvia, Taiwan, and Malaysia. The GCI bases 70% of its daily analysis and ranking countries worldwide on how well each of them is handling the pandemic.
In the ranking of countries that can best recover from COVID-19 or the Global COVID-19 Index (GCI), Thailand is ranked…
Prayut Chan-o-cha, the Prime Minister of Thailand, has been very keen on following the guidelines and safety measures mandated by the Center for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA). Though he still permitted foreign trades, he was very careful and asked people to follow the guidelines so that businesses conducting trades would resume their operation.
The government of Thailand also showed concern towards schools. They issued some preventive measures to minimize the spread of COVID-19. The Ministry of Public Health handed over a “COVID-19 Handbook for Schools” to each school for students to use.
Filipinos on Twitter can’t help but react ‘sana all’ to Thailand’s recovery index.
Sana all thailand ☹

Thailand takes WHO (World Health Organization) guidelines very seriously on fighting the virus. Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director of WHO, said that “when the public follows preventive measures, for example, keeping physical distancing, wearing masks, and washing hands, new cases in that country go down. Therefore, informing, engaging, and listening are key pillars that will help us get through this worldwide crisis together.”
