Better safe than sorry approach?Makes perfect sense to me, but it certainly wasn’t the case early on when they were shutting down entire firehouses for 14 days because one person tested positive..
Simple comparison between the US to a very well documented other country that has undertaken extreme precautions.
Thailand close to fully shutting back down when 1 asymptomatic person tested positive, which turned into 3 a day later and 7 four days later.
Thailand: 3,239 infections, 58 deaths, 3 active cases at present. Country is closed to foreign visitors.
US: 3,764,000 infections, 141,000 deaths, active cases 1,911,870 (https://corona.help/country/united-states)
Comparison to US: 20% population. .086% infection rate. .041% deaths attributed to C-19.
Chinese tourists per year, 2019, approx 10,000,000. (search engine: Chinese visitors to Thailand per year)
One major difference between the two countries is economically Thailand relies much more heavily on foreign tourism than the US.
