Recently, a Thai national allegedly modified the Thai language Wikipedia entry for Thai virologist Dr Yong Poovorawan to include that Dr Yong is also a “Sinovac salesman for the Prayut Chan-o-cha administration”. He is now facing charges such as criminal defamation and maybe computer crimes. On Monday, Bangkok police searched the 24 year old aspiring scribe’s home and seized his mobile phone. The device was allegedly used in the illicit editing. The sardonic CV line has already been deleted from Dr Yong’s Wikipedia page. The charges and search followed a complaint filed by a representative of Dr Yong. The doctor […]

This unnamed hero has, in one swift Wikipedia edit, spoken for the nation.

I have been aware of Dr Yong saying some damned silly stuff over the past few months, causing me to ponder on exactly how easy it might be to become a top doctor in Thailand.

Clearly, it is important to have good hair but even more important is a strong instinct for saying what the government wants you to say, no matter how ridiculous.

Purportedly stated by the good doctor in relation to WHO advice about NOT mixing vax "Of course in this study farangs have not caught up with us because for now farangs dont widely study inactivated strains.  While China does not widely study the viral vector vaccines, for now"

That's not the most important information in that story.

"Dr Anan Jongkaewwattana, who works as a virology researcher at the National Centre for Engineering and Biotechnology, announced that clinical research done in part with BIOTEC and the clinical research centre of the Faculty of Medicine of Thammasat University showed that efficacy of 2 doses of Sinovac plummets by 50% every 40 days."

If my basic math is correct, then the half-life of the drug would be down to 6.3% efficacy in 6 months.

Way to go, China.

Only if he is incorrect. Maybe? They are not sure. This would be a good case to follow.

The salesman and his boss are probably getting a commission (kickback) from China for buying that snake oil.
