The Ministry of Public Health has clarified that the government has no policy of allowing COVID-19 patients to be treated at home and infected persons must be hospitalised.

Department of Disease Control (DDC) director-General Dr Opas Karnkawinpong said Thailand had no policy to confine people infected with COVID-19 to their homes. If hospital beds are full, they will be forwarded to a field hospital or a hotel semi-hospital system to treat patients with mild symptoms.

He added that the majority of infected people in this new wave have relatively few symptoms, so a hotel system is adapted to be a hospitel, with a medical and public healthcare system, and there are also thousands of rooms available at present.
