Thailand Coronavirus Updates: Time For Country To Be United And Strong , Every Individual Have To Do Their Part
Alerts: The only way that Thailand can come out of the Covid-19 crisis with a low mortality figure and also to rapidly eradicate Covid-19 in the country is for all to share the same objectives and strategies and do their part.
This is not a time for ego, personal gains or about scoring revenge. Starting from the government, to healthcare authorities and medical professionals down to companies, corporations to very single citizen, everyone needs to listen, share information and find the best solutions.
As far as possible, starting from tomorrow to the end of April, everyone needs to do their part from self-solation, social distancing and stop spreading the wrong information on social media platforms or even engaging in complains or anger. Yes we are all angry, including us at Thailand Medical News, but it is not going to help anyone. Lets channel that energy into constructive solutions to protect ourselves and the country by finding solutions to solve the problems the country is facing and also play a part in helping the less fortunate and poor. Even the simplest deed of simply providing a meal for person less fortunate than you is already a great deed and a help to the country. (you can simply call and order and pay for such an order and have it delivered to the address.)
There are lots of online activity trying to come up with innovative ideas to solve medical and health care needs such as masks, face shields, etc Join them and help in whichever way you can.
There are online platforms who are doing their part to solve some of the medical supplies shortages that rural hospitals are facing. Lets help them. Even a small contribution helps. One platform that is planning many such noble deeds and will need your support shortly is Social Givers, (https://socialgiver.com/en
) run by a champion for the poor, Khun Arch Wongchindawest and his remarkable team who is planning a few major programs to help healthcare staff and hospitals all over Thailand and also looking into helping to procur more test kits and drugs into the country with support from healthcare officials. He has also solely funded a ventilator project in which cheaper locally produced ventilators can deployed in times of emergencies and acute shortage. With the help of Dr Saifon Chairungreung and a local engineering wiz kid called Peggo, the team is building the first prototype and it will be further modified based on inputs from local Thai doctors before being deployed.
There is a lot to be done but most importantly start by simply by isolating yourself, maintaining social distancing and taking all the necessary precautions., If you suspect that you are sick, immediately call the authorities and get admitted to a hospital.
