Thailand’s Unsung Covid-19 Success Story
Thailand’s (so far) mild Covid-19 experience likely owes to a uniquely Thai mix of factors.
These include a successful appeal to Thai nationalism so that “stay-at-home” and “social distancing” orders have been obeyed as patriotic duty. And there is the near-universal adoption of mask-wearing.
Thailand’s tentative success could also owe in part its unique culture. Thais traditionally greet each other without touching, through prayer-like wais.
A Buddhism-inspired reticence, witnessed on eerily silent public transit buses and trains, has also arguably helped to keep aspirated viral contagion out of the air.
