Wearing face masks is almost universal.

Everyone has their temperature taken (OK not the best screening test but easy to do) before being allowed in a shop or mall.

Doormen meet you at the entrance of a shop/supermarket and squirt alcohol into your hands.

Shopping baskets are cleaned after each use.

In Phuket, at least, there is little public transport most people travelling on mopeds or in cars.

The authorities isolated known hotspots and tested everyone there. This happened in Phuket in a couple of towns.

Each new case is given a number and information is published as to which positive case they are presumed to have contracted the infection. A chain of infection seems to be known.

The recent spike of 18 cases yesterday was due to a group of migrant workers who were in quarantine, some of whom developed the disease whilst in quarantine
