Thousands take to streets in Bangkok to protest

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused social, economic, and political unrest worldwide as citizens of most countries feel let down by governments’ failures to lead and protect the citizens adequately.  Governments worldwide continue to let the people down with poor health conditions, reducing political and social rights and economic woes.  Governments and politicians are failing to do their jobs, or expectations are too high.  People worldwide in most countries are feeling the same and reacting in similar ways suggesting that there is more than a COVID-19 pandemic, but a social and political pandemic as well.
