Thais rank No 1 in Southeast Asia when it comes to washing hands and wearing face masks to prevent the spread of Covid-19, according to a recent survey.

The Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) announced on Wednesday (May 20) that 95 per cent of Thais wore face masks and 89 per cent were washing their hands frequently.

Dr Taweesin Visanuyothin, CCSA spokesman, said the rankings were revealed in a survey of preventive behaviours during the Covid-19 outbreak made by YouGov, an international data analytics firm based in Britain.

More than 13,000 people were surveyed from six countries in Southeast Asia including Singapore, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand.
