Where can I get tested for the Coronavirus and if necessary treatment?

Recommended Posts

I live in Koh Phangan with my gf and would like to know who we should contact if one or both of us develop symptoms of the virus.

Thanks for your reply scuba, but if the non existent info on their website is anything to go by I hope I never need to call them. There is no mention of the virus on the site and most of the links don't work.

The OP is incorrect to state the risk of serious highway accidents is "minuscule."  Even if a driver or pedestrian exercises extreme caution, they cannot control the often reckless actions of others. Thailand has one of the most dangerous highway systems in the world.  Time to wake up and smell the coffee!  Good luck.

Isn't that also the number for the government dog catcher?

I imagine that number is useless

Totally agree, Donmuang, and anyone who thinks otherwise is sadly misguided. I have lived in UK and USA for about 38 years combined, and do not know of one friend or acquaintance killed in a traffic accident, yet here, for the same amount of time, I have lost count 😞

Just go to your local hospital. They will determine if you need COVID19 testing based on your travel history as well as your symptoms. Also note if you have been to any of the 9 countries listed on the MOPH website and have symptoms within 14 days you have to report to a hospital immediately (by the Act).  https://ddc.moph.go.th/viralpneumonia/eng/index.php
