That's inappropriate and 40 baht too much.

When they're positive, they hide away and don't show up in the national figures, except for the ones who later develop symptoms that require treatment.

If they can setup PCR hubs in BKK in 2 weeks, then they could have long done so all over the country and we'd have a much better picture of the situation. 

The Covid situation is like a sieve of which they temporarily close a different hole each time, while it continues pooring out of the other holes.

ATK's for home testing are for when the situation is reasonably contained. Not when the situation is uncontrolled.

But then they wouldn't be able to fool everyone that everything in the country is wonderful, now would they. 555

Who need FDA approval. It's endorsed by Facebook.

#1. No Covid test is "accurate".

#2. You can't beat a virus by chasing it with a vaccine or vaccines.

If other countries said 'boil your head,' would you?

No, but if other countries said don’t put your head in boiling water, I’d listen
