Pattaya health volunteers surveyed migrant-laborer camps and slums for signs of Covid-19.
Accompanied by Public Health Department workers, Arunothai village health volunteers joined neighborhood President Amnuay Muangthong and Arunothai Primary Health Center Chairwoman Saiying Muangthong for the March 23 inspection.
No Covid-19 testing was done, but volunteers had laborers and residents complete questionnaires and took temperatures.
The plan was to send anyone with suspicious indicators or working in high-risk areas to Banglamung Hospital for a coronavirus test, but nothing set off the radar.
While there, the volunteers dispensed information on how to prevent dengue fever and other mosquito-borne diseases.
