(September 11, 2020) The global politics of virus vaccines

It is clear now that Thailand's de facto strategy for handling the coronavirus pandemic is to minimise local infections and wait for a safe and effective vaccine. The recent discovery of just one Thai in a Bangkok suburb who tested positive sent the country into near-panic mode after 100 days of zero local transmissions, similar to the case of an Egyptian military official who visited Rayong province in July and tested positive thereafter.

The Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) has succeeded both in keeping Thais safe and also perpetuating a "zero" mindset among them. For better or worse, this means Thailand has to hope, pray and pay more attention to the increasing politicisation of vaccine development abroad.
