Nearly 3,000 Covid-19 patients in Bangkok waiting for hospital beds

BANGKOK (The Nation/ANN): The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) aims to build community isolation centres in all 50 districts for new Covid-19 patients to stay while waiting to be transferred to hospitals or field hospitals, mostly occupied now by current patients.

We estimate that there are nearly 3,000 patients who have yet to be sent to hospitals and are unable to stay in isolation at home due to space constraints, so they will need to stay at community isolation centres instead,” BMA permanent secretary Silapasuay Raweesaengsoon (pic) said on Sunday (July 25). - The Nation/Asia News Network
