The World Health Organization (WHO) has praised Thailand during the event at the World Health Assembly 2020, as the kingdom has consistently done well in coping with COVID-19.
WHO Director-General, Doctor Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, praised Thailand’s PM as he has led the team of Thai public health officials in fighting against the COVID-19 pandemic. The Director-General Doctor Tedros thanked Thailand during the closing ceremony of the 73rd World Health Assembly, as Thailand has supported the WHO’s efforts to control the disease, and has emerged as a great example of a country that has inspired good cooperation between the government and the public.
According to the statistics, Thailand was the first country reported to have a COVID-19 infection outside Wuhan. However, even with its population of over 70 million, Thailand has had fewer than four thousand cases, and fatalities number just 60. Thailand’s success is not just a coincidence but the result of serious efforts and effective policies.
The Thai PM General Prayut Chan-O-Cha, stressed that it is not only the government’s success but also the public’s as all members of the Thai community have given good cooperation throughout the pandemic. (NNT)
