Bangkok’s first community isolation facility set up in Khlong Toey


Recommended Posts



The first community isolation facility in Bangkok is scheduled to open tomorrow (Friday), with the goal of separating those infected with COVID-19 from their crowded community, before they go to hospital.


The pilot project is a joint effort by the Office of National Health Committee (ONHC), the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration and health networks. The facility is located in the grounds of Saphan Temple, in Phra Khanong district, which is adjacent to Khlong Toey, the largest slum in Bangkok.


Dr. Prateep Thanakitcharoen, secretary-general of the ONHC, said today that the project is a model of community-based management, for the prevention and control of diseases by community committee, with the support of the public and private sectors.

no, isolation facility is before they are allocated to a field hospital, not to a hospital.

Situation might well mean that field hospitals are full. There are daily around 1000 positive in bangkok for many weeks. On one day was 1800.
