One of the three (out of 138) Thai evacuees from Wuhan, who has been at Sattahip naval base for treatment for coronavirus infection since February 6th, was discharged from hospital Tuesday night.

The deputy director of Queen Sirikit Hospital, Dr Rewat Kitnarong, said this morning that the patient, whose name is being withheld, rejoined the other 136 evacuees, who are being quarantined at guest houses on the base until February 19.

He says the condition of the second victim, admitted to the hospital on February 4, has also improved and a psychiatrist is due to meet with the patient and it is hoped that they will be discharged today as well.

The third confirmed case is in Chon Buri Hospital awaiting further physical checks and an X-ray examination.

Rewat also reminded medical personnel that the Novel Coronavirus should be referred to as Covid-19, the formal name assigned to it by the World Health Organization.
