Scared of the virus and the vaccine

From Thairath, May 3, 2021
Title: Run away from the tiger then meet the crocodile instead
On bottle: Vaccine
Phi Nooring: From a hope, but turn to fear.
Mouse: Lost confidence

[This refers to the alleged fear of vaccines, especially Sinovac from China. This is part of the opposition strategy to criticize the government over its slow vaccination efforts and alleged corruption in the vaccination procurement by raising concerns about the safety of vaccines. However, recently the Move Forward Party reversed its position and urged people to get vaccinated. The cartoon illustrates the dilemma as Thai proverb “run away from the tiger then meet the crocodile instead” which is similar to the the English proverb “out of the frying pan, into the fire.”]
