Over 2,000 patients in Bangkok discharged, 1,359 undergoing treatment


The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) said on Sunday that 2,072 Covid-19 patients treated at hospitals under the BMA had recovered and been discharged.

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.
