Thailand cancels New Year’s celebrations amid COVID fears

Thailand was looking like one of the success stories of 2020.
Despite being the first country outside China to detect COVID-19 infections, it had remarkably low infection rates and fewer than 100 fatalities.

Thailand has already cancelled large gatherings and New Year’s events.
