Thai Prime Minister ecstatic over Thailand listed as fourth best country in the world in handling the Covid-19 Coronavirus outbreak according to Lowy Institute

Bangkok –

Prime Minister Prayut Chan O’Cha said he was pleased that Thailand was listed as the fourth best country in the world in dealing with the Covid-19 Coronavirus outbreak, according to his statement on social media yesterday, January 30th.

The list was announced by Australia’s Lowy Institute, one of the country’s leading academic institutions and researching centers. The top five countries among 98 countries were New Zealand, Vietnam, Taiwan, Thailand, and Cyprus respectively.

The Prime Minister stated online that Thailand has made it to the top five because of the cooperation among all Thai people and everyone should be proud of it.

The statement reads: “I believe that if Thai people work together as one, there is nothing we cannot do.”

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone again, especially the teams of medical doctors, nurses, public health officials, administrative security, volunteers, and the private sectors, for their cooperation and participation throughout the country. Thank you to all the Thai people who routinely take care of themselves hygienically and strictly comply with Covid-19 health measures to prevent the spread of the deadly virus in the country.”

“We will be able to get through this crisis again with everyone’s cooperation. Thank you.” The Prime Minister concluded.

The list was released as Thailand is dealing with a second round of Covid-19 in the country, mostly contained in a single province, Samut Sakhon, in densely packed migrant worker communities and factories.
