Irrational hubris

28 07 2021

Recalling that it was about 40 or so days ago that Gen Prayuth Chan-ocha stated that Thailand would re-open in 120 days, he’s now come up with another “bold” claim.

With a record high of 16,533 new virus infections and 133 new fatalities attributed to the virus,Gen Prayuth has let it be known that “the intense Covid-19 situation will affect the country for the next two to three weeks or four weeks at most…”. Apparently, he’s ordered that “in 14 days, the lockdown and the curfew will be reviewed and a decision will be made based on the severity of the situation” as to what happens next.

He seems to be sticking with the idea of a re-opening in 120 days from mid-June.

This could reflect irrational hubris or a detachment from reality.
