National –

The World Health Organization (WHO) has praised Thailand as a role model and listed the Kingdom in the best three countries in the world for its ability to contain and cope with the Covid-19 situation, a government spokesperson reported today, May 8th.

Government spokesperson Thanakorn Wangboonkongchana said today, May 8th, that Prime Minister Prayut Chan-O’Cha had thanked all related agencies and departments and the public for cooperating to comply with the measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19, resulting in the country becoming a part of the world’s top three countries for handling the Covid-19 pandemic.

This is due to the country’s flexible management according to the current situation of the pandemic as well as its practical measures, according to WHO experts and WHO Thailand’s team. The key to the good adjustments also included the support from senior political executives in the government, the strengthening of the Thai public health system, the cooperation of all sectors, including the public and private sectors, the enhancing participation of the people and the community, and the use of digital technologies to help to make decisions.

“The Prime Minister insisted that this was not the only achievement of the government but also of all sectors and most importantly it was a result of receiving good cooperation from all Thai people. However, the Prime Minister asked everyone to remain cautious and strictly follow the Covid-19 measures for Thailand to return to a normal situation as soon as possible,” Thanakorn concluded.
