Local media reports said that the nation had vaccinated only 2% of its 60 million people in a delayed inoculation program as the government initially chose to use only two vaccines, China's Sinovac and one made by AstraZeneca. In Q4 2020, Southeast Asia's second-largest economy shrank by 4.2 percent yoy, slowing from a 6.4 percent plunge in Q3, due to efforts from the government and the central bank to mitigate the economic fallout from the pandemic. source: University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce
