Abstract

The purposes of this research were: (1) to study the negative impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic; (2) to study the practices used to prevent the COVID-19 pandemic; and (3) to present the model of COVID-19 prevention in the critical situations of Thai society. A mixed-research methodology was applied in this study. The samples used in this study were 350 people and five key informants who are university personnel in Bangkok and suburban areas. The instruments used to collect data were a research questionnaire and an in-depth interview. The statistics used in this research consisted of percentage, mean, and standard deviation. The research results showed that: (1) the negative impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, in total, were at a high level. In particular, the negative impacts on human life had the highest mean value, followed by business, happiness, and work respectively; (2) the practices used to prevent the COVID-19 pandemic, in total, were at a high level. In particular, mask wearing had the highest mean value, followed by social distancing, vaccine vaccination, and hand washing respectively; and (3) the model of COVID-19 prevention in the critical situations of Thai society consisted of being aware of the COVID-19, understanding the causes of the COVID-19,  understanding the impacts of the COVID-19, applying preventive approaches, mask wearing, social distancing, hand washing, refraining from traveling to risky places, vaccine vaccination, creating morale and courage, and having a good planning.
