BANGKOK -- People in Thailand lately have been obsessed with regaining the world's top position in the online game Popcat. Thailand took the global No.1 ranking shortly after the game started catching on there in mid-August. Companies are placing Popcat-related ads on social media to capitalize on its popularity. The simple game seems to appeal to the public because for a little while it takes people's minds off the pandemic at a time when Thailand is in a de facto lockdown due to spreading infections.
