BMA permanent secretary Silpasuay Raweesangsoon said on Sunday that 1,359 patients were being treated, 21 patients had been transferred to hospitals unaffiliated with BMA and 10 patients had died.
"To deal with the increasing number of Covid-19 cases, BMA has arranged medical personnel, supplies and facilities -- hospitals, field hospitals and "hospitels" -- to take care of both symptomatic and asymptomatic patients," she said.
She added that the Erawan Emergency Medical Services Centre had cooperated with agencies to speed up patient transportation to ensure that no patients were waiting to be taken to medical facilities.
"From April 10 to May 1, the centre admitted 2,839 patients to medical facilities, of which 1,886 were sent to medical facilities under BMA and 953 were sent to hospitals unaffiliated with the authority," she added.
