Covid patient-management centre launched as Bangkok logs record cases


The Erawan Emergency Medical Centre became the headquarters for Covid-19 patient management in Bangkok on Monday, in an upgrade ordered by the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA).

The upgrade came as Thailand logged a record 9,635 new virus cases on Monday, 6,853 in prisons and 1,843 in Bangkok.

Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) Permanent Secretary Silapasuay Raweesangsoon said on Monday that three teams were set up to accelerate the patient management:

1. Busarakham Hospital will be responsible for Bangkok's North and East areas.

2. The reception centre at Nimibutr Stadium will be responsible for Bangkok's central and southern areas.

3. Bang Khun Thian Geriatric Hospital will be responsible for Thonburi.

"Meanwhile BMA Deputy Permanent Secretary Wanthanee Watthana will propose guidelines to the CCSA," she said.
