The Ministry of Public Health’s Emergency Medical and Public Health Centre has shed light on the health status of 15 Thai workers who recently arrived from Israel. The evaluation revealed that two distinct individuals exhibited signs of stress, while seven individuals reported incidents of disturbed sleep, prompting the need for psychiatric consultation. Amongst these returnees, one individual who had been shot in the leg was in need of continued medical attention due to the severity of the injury. These Thai workers, having escaped the escalating conflict in Israel, had to undergo rigorous physical and mental health examinations at the quarantine zone situated in the Bamrasnaradura Institute. The all-male cohort received comprehensive medical assistance from a dedicated squad of medical experts from the Medical Department and a prolific mental health rehabilitation team from the Department of Mental Health.
The mental health investigation unearthed that aside from the two individuals battling stress and seven dealing with sleep disorders, two found it crucial to engage in psychiatric consultations. Furthermore, the second wave of 19 Thai nationals, evacuating Israel’s war turmoil, is anticipated to land today. A harrowing case involves a man from Udon Thani who faced his adversaries bare-handedly, sustaining a neck wound and a stabbing, leading to significant blood loss. His wife was left horrifically shocked after seeing a photograph of his gruesome injuries.
The Ministry of Public Health has also disclosed that two Thai citizens hailing from Israel who had been shot were forced to use wheelchairs. They have been advised to recuperate at Bamrasnaradura before making their journey back home.
Speaking of physical health conditions, the screening identified four individuals sustaining wounds, one suffering from acid reflux, and another diagnosed with a stomach ailment. The unfortunate individual who was shot in their left leg necessitates ongoing treatment and was subsequently referred to the Somdej Phra Chao Taksin Maharaj Hospital, based in the province of Tak.
The health screening results for Thai workers returning from Israel have been publicized by the Ministry of Public Health, singling out two individuals who required psychiatric consultations.
This group of 15 individuals comprises four people from Nong Bua Lam Phu, whereas the remainder hail from Chiang Rai, Nan, Phayao, Tak, Sakon Nakhon, Udon Thani, Nong Khai, Nakhon Ratchasima, Surin, Ubon Ratchathani, and Yasothon, each province sending a single representative as reported by KhaoSod.
