Medics from Buri Ram’s Phrakhon Chai hospital beat the heat by driving a “saleng” or sidecar to locals’ homes to test them for Covid-19.

The medics took a sidecar to people’s homes on May 16.

Prasit Paprakon, a medic at the hospital, said he and his colleagues had finished testing 59 locals, but six persons could not leave their homes.

He said that was the only way he and other medics in PPE suits could beat the sweltering heat.
