Seven people infected with Covid-19 who made headlines around the country for camping outside their flats in Din Daeng due to the lack of hospital beds has been given help, an official told Thai Enquirer on Tuesday.

 

“They have now been transferred to the Hospitel at Baiyoke Tower II,” Wan Uthaisri, the Head of Environment and Sanitation of the Din Daeng District Office told Thai Enquirer.

 

The District worked with the National Housing Authority of Thailand in relocating the patients and the tents have been removed.

Ambulances have been running around the capital picking up people.  Had 3 roll into the side Soi where they picked up 2 early in the afternoon and then last night rolled in and picked up another.  PPE wearing man spraying around them as they moved the person to the ambulance and then back to the front of the residence where they sprayed again.  Lets see what today brings on that Soi.  It is one where we support a few families further down it, but have not heard from them in over 2 weeks, so we wonder where they may have gone, I hope they were not transported away.  The phone number we have for the one family just keeps going unanswered and then to the message.

Do you know if any local insurance companies offer compensation if someone tests positive for covid 19? If yes, then maybe that's part of the problem why we are seeing a spike recently in specific areas.. 😏

Let asymptomatic cases recover at home. Problem solved.

The emergency beds are ICU and Critical care beds, not asymptomatic beds unfortunately.  I agree with you that without symptoms you should be able to isolate at home and once symptoms start then you call and they come pick you up for evaluation and to send you to wherever you need to go for treatment.

Works for those with a proper home but not those living in camps and dormitories! However Tent Cities on quarantine islands good alternative to expensive hotels
