NHSO’s home isolation program for COVID-19 patients ends Thursday


Recommended Posts



Thailand’s National Health Security Office (NHSO), which has run the home isolation program for COVID-19 patients at a total cost of more than 150 billion baht, has decided to shut the program down today (Thursday), said Medical Service Department Director-General Dr. Somsak Akksilp today.


He also said that the NHSO board will meet on Monday to scrap the free distribution of rapid antigen test kits to members of the public via selected drug stores, noting that, in accordance with the Medical Service Department’s regulation, rapid antigen test kits will be administered only when a patient has developed symptoms.


According to NHSO Deputy Secretary-General Dr. Atthaporn Limpanyalert, COVID-19 patients can still get access to hospitals for treatment in accordance with their entitlements, such as the Gold Card, the standard social security scheme or the health security scheme for government officials.
