If the locals followed the Ministry of Public Health’s guidelines for pandemic prevention, the government claims that the number of cases in November would significantly decline. 5 fatalities and 1,406 new cases were reported today, according to Bangkok’s Public Relations Office. Ratchathewi, the capital’s patient-heavy district, has 115 patients. Bang Khae and Nong Chok districts, which will house new field hospitals and isolation centers, are also listed among the top 10. The governor emphasized that there are still open hospital beds in the city and that only 20% of the field hospitals in Bangkok are full. The field hospitals, according to Chadchart, who also noted that home isolation is still preferable, would be a choice for Covid patients who desired to keep themselves apart from seniors or family members in the sensitive group categories. According to today’s media sources, Bangkok has seen a rise in new coronavirus infections. The launching dates for Bangkok’s new field hospitals in the Nong Chok region and the establishment of isolation units at Ratchapipat Hospital in the Bang Khae districts have not been made public. Omicron sub-variants BA.4 and BA.5 are currently on the rise, according to Bangkok Governor Chadchart Sittipunt, who stated that new field hospitals and isolation facilities may reopen if necessary to address the situation. According to the Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration, the number of cases across the country are anticipated to reach their peak in September. Sathit Pitutecha, the deputy minister of health, gave the Ministry of Public Health in Thailand instructions to submit the exact number of infections on Monday. He asserted that, as contrast to the 2,000 instances that are recorded each day, there are actually 20,000 to 30,000 illnesses prevalent each day. Similar claims were made two weeks prior by Dr. Nitiphat Chierakul of Siriraj Hospital, who stated that there have been 50,000 instances since June.
