Thailand has been held up as a model of a country that has dealt well with the virus. It has only recorded 59 deaths from Covid-19 and there have been no domestic infections since June (the only cases since then have been people coming into the country). Other countries in the region have also performed well: Singapore and Hong Kong have only recorded a total of 132 deaths between them.

When it comes to periods of market downturn, and financial crises, each one is different and nuanced with differing causal effects. This time is different again. It is not about over-leveraging, but it is a global pandemic that we are facing. What began as an outbreak in China has now assumed a global scale. It is not financial distress, rather it is uncertainty about individual health and fear about personal wellbeing everywhere.
