Thailand is ranked second in the Global COVID-19 Index (GCI) after Australia, and first in Asia in the same index.

Government spokeswoman Mrs. Narumon Pinyosinwat told the media on Sunday that Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha has expressed his thanks to everyone in the country for their discipline and endurance in the collective efforts to fight and prevent the spread of COVID-19.

The GCI, developed by PEMADU Associates, in cooperation with the Ministry of Science and Innovations of Malaysia (MOSTI) and the Sunway Group, have used a big data system in the scoring and ranking of 184 countries facing the pandemic.

70% of the score comes from the fatalities from COVID-19 in each country as a proportion of the population, and the remaining 30% comes from the scores from Global Health Security (GHS), initiated and developed by John Hopkins University, to assess the readiness of each country to cope with the pandemic.
