The Health Department revealed recently that only 20% of Thai people wore face masks at home, while 75% were concerned about infection among family members.
This information was based on the Anamai Event Poll, conducted between July 19 to 28 with 1,324 samples.
The poll also pointed out that 67% of people in 13 red provinces would be amenable to follow the department’s advice if it campaigned for them to wear masks at home for 14 days.
In addition, 84% of locals in other provinces agreed to the same idea.
