The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) on Monday launched an official Line account for residents seeking emergency Covid-19 treatment.

The Line account @bkkcovid19connect opened as Bangkok and its vicinity logged 12 Covid-related deaths and more than 1,000 new cases over the past 24 hours.

Governor Aswin Kwanmuang said the account would speed up the emergency response for Covid-19 patients, providing an alternative to the Erawan Emergency Medical Service Centre's 1669 hotline.

"A strength of this account is that it enables the BMA to manage Covid-19 patients effectively," he said.

"Once officials finish checking a person's information submitted via the account, they will contact the person within an hour."

He also asked people who contacted the account to prepare their information and self-isolate at their residence until officials arrive.
