I was watching CNN today, and one of the experts brought up countries/cities like Hong Kong, South Korea, and Thailand as an example of how to control a pandemic. We (thailand) had virtually no testing. What we did have were plenty of advance science-based notice and masks. It worked. The biggest 'super spreader' was an illegal boxing match that infected hundreds in early March. The match was illegal because all concentrations of this sort had already been banned. Trump does not understand basic science.

The government on Wednesday reported nine new coronavirus disease patients, all returnees staying in state quarantine facilities.
The nine new cases raised the total to 3,054 of which 2,931, or 96%, had recovered, with two patients released over the previous 24 hours. Sixty-six patients were at hospitals. The death toll remained unchanged at 57.
There were no new local infections, Dr Taweesilp said.
Wear a mask, people...please. There are 70 million people in Thailand. Only 57 died. This is a major Asian hub with big-time traffic from the Middle East, Europe, America, and of course Asia. Please do not listen to Trump or his lackeys.
