The Thai government is urging families to protect elderly members of their households from the risk of infection while others family members probably travel working in areas where Covid-19 outbreaks are prevalent.
Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) assistant spokeswoman Dr Apisamai Srirangson said many infections in families had been brought home from workplaces or spread at gatherings and households are no longer safe.
She said the elderies and bed-bound patients should be separated from family members who travel into areas where there is a risk of infection, or avoid doing the activity together.
Dr Apisamai added that since the implementation of stricter control measures including the work-from-home policy and shutting down night entertainment venues after Songkran holiday, the overall situation has now begun to improve. Bed shortages are easing now, with patients only having to wait one or two days, on average, to be admitted for treatment. (NNT)
