The Department of Disease Control (DDC) has ordered health checks for residents of a Bangkok condominium in which a 9-year-old Sudanese girl infected with Covid-19 stayed.

Condo One X Sukhumvit 26, where the Sudanese diplomat’s family of the infected girl chose to stay, is located in Khlong Tan district.

The condominium confirmed that the family did not use any common or public rooms except for the lifts.

DDC deputy director-general Dr Preecha Prempree decided to examine the condominium for himself and instructed any person who came into contact with the family to immediately take a Covid-19 test.

The case of the infected girl in Thailand came to light on July 11. All five members of her family were screened for the virus before they departed and arrived in Thailand.

DDC vehicles were seen at the condominium. They are normally used to collect biosafety samples for a coronavirus test.
