Samut Sakhon governor to be discharged from hospital next Friday

Samut Sakhon governor Verasak Vichitsangsri will be discharged from Bangkok’s Siriraj Hospital in a week because his lungs have almost completely recovered, his doctor said.


Dr Prasit Watanapa, dean of the Faculty of Medicine at Siriraj Hospital, announced on Friday that Verasak has mostly recovered and does not need to be assisted in his daily activities.


However, the doctor said that people should not visit him because he needs complete rest to fully recover.


Veerasak tested positive for Covid-19 in December and has since been hospitalised, while his province has become the country’s hot spot in the second Covid-19 wave, with a total of 16,449 positive cases reported so far.


On March 6, his daughter said in a Facebook post that her father was working on slowly rehabilitating his lungs and muscles.
