Bangkok governor Aswin said that about 1,000 beds have been added to the 13 community isolation centers currently in operation throughout the capital.

The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) is setting up more beds in isolation facilities to handle the rising number of Covid-19 cases.

During an inspection at an isolation center in Klong Toey district on Wednesday, Bangkok governor Aswin Kwanmuang announced that about 1,000 beds have been added to the 13 community isolation centers currently in operation throughout the capital. Additional Isolation facilities are also being set up. These centers will help treat patients with less severe conditions and ease pressure on the overall health system.

The Bangkok governor said around 45 percent of the capital’s 3,500 available beds are currently occupied. He emphasized the importance of not leaving infected people untreated in their homes in order to ensure their safety. He also voiced concern about the increase in Covid-19 cases in Bangkok following the discovery of Omicron infection cases in Thailand at the beginning of the year.



People who test positive for Covid-19 should contact the BMA via the NHSO hotline number at 1330 ext.14, the Erawan Medical Center’s hotline number at 1669 ext. 2, or the EOC emergency hotline numbers for evaluation and immediate treatment. (NNT)
