COVID-19 in Ubon

Recommended Posts

Not far from my house, a building in the local Tha Bor primary school on Chaegsanit road (road to Yasothon; 100 m from the ring road intersection) has been turned into a field hospital by the Public Health Department. It is to monitor people suspected to have COVID-19. I guess there are not enough isolation wards in the city hospitals. Also the authorities may be anticipating a sudden rise in cases as people lose their jobs in Bangkok and return to Ubon. I wonder if other places in northeast Thailand are also setting up field hospitals?

I was in Ubon city yesterday, and I went to the hospital (Ubolrat) to refill some prescriptions.

 

Very few people there, much less than usual.

 

The public hospital being constantly full, it would seem prudent to set up a field hospital dedicated to potential patients infected by the virus.

 

From what I have seen on national TV, there are less than 10 registered cases today in Ubon province, that seem to be handled in the concerned tambons...

They have already returned, people left bangkok last week. Then the government told no one to leave after they had left. Too little too late. Already someone travelled from bangkok to nong khai that has it.
