21 of 50 Bangkok community isolation centres in operation


Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) is aiming to set up 50 community isolation centres across the capital in a bid to curb infections and avoid congestion in hospitals. So far, 21 of these centres are in operation.

“Each isolation centre has a special patient screening area, cafeteria for patients, cardboard beds, electronic utilities, waste-water treatment and contagious waste-disposal systems. Municipal officials will also be at hand to oversee sanitary and safety measures,” BMA permanent-secretary Silapasuay Raweesangsoon said on Wednesday while inspecting a centre in Lak Si district.

Thailand Post has also allocated its school building in Lak Si for use as an isolation centre. The 3-storey building can support 118 patients and is expected to be ready for use on Thursday.
