Coronavirus (Covid-19)

Bangkok deploys mobile testing units

Published

 on 

The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration is providing testing at home for people who may have caught the coronavirus disease.

City governor Aswin Kwanmuang said yesterday that the BMA, along with the Mor Lab Panda Facebook page, are sending mobile teams to conduct Covid-19 testing to the homes of people who complete an online questionnaire and are at risk. People who test positive will be taken to treatment facilities. This will quickly contain the disease and relieve the fears of people in the area.

The governor explained the units will visit people who complete an online screening questionnaire , (which at this time is only available in Thai) and are at high risk from contact with infected people.

The website launched last Friday and more than 20,000 people completed the form by Wednesday afternoon.
