For the time being, the center was able to send COVID-19 cases to hospitals in a real-time manner, Silapasuay said.

The Erawan emergency medical service center of the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration already arranged for hospital beds for the treatment of all untreated COVID-19 patients in the capital.



Silapasuay Raweesangsoon, permanent secretary of BMA, said the Erawan center and partners sent to hospitals the 133 COVID-19 cases who had waited for hospital beds and the waiting list in the capital was eliminated.


For the time being, the center was able to send COVID-19 cases to hospitals in a real-time manner, she said.



After receiving transport requests, if the center was able to contact infected people and initially collected their information before noon, it could send them in the afternoon to either Sirindhorn Hospital or Bang Khun Thian Geriatric Hospital where they would be examined to determine the degrees of illness and then brought to treatment at hospitals, Mrs Silapasuay said.
