Covid-19 video: Russian/Thai couple fear for their lives after hospital send them home with high fever

A couple just back to Thailand from Russia went to the media to complain after they contacted a hospital in Chonburi and despite having a high fever were sent home with some paracetamol and cough medicine. 

 

The couple are a 22 Thai woman and her 30 year old Russian boyfriend.

 

They made a video that they sent to a hospital that was not named in the 77kaoded story. 

 

They said they arrived back from Russia on the 21st of March and went into 14 day self quarantine. 

 

By the eighth day both had developed a fever and three days into that they had high fever and were feeling much worse. They took paracetamol as coughs and diarrhea developed.

 

They contacted the hospital in the morning and an ambulance picked them up in the evening at 4 pm. 

 

They were examined and deemed not to be in danger, were given more paracetamol and cough mixture and sent home to continue quarantine. 

 

"B" (an assumed name) told the media they were not given chest x-rays and now she and her husband think they are going to die. 

 

77kaoded contacted the hospital who wouldn't give them any details and said to call the Chonburi authorities.

Probably a case of hypochondria

The Russian should have got her tested for that.  🙂

I guess Chonburi did not get the memo to stand in line as the medical och health hub of the world.

A test for the virus, perhaps? Seems a reasonable expection after telling the hospital about their symptoms and voluntary quarantine.

I dont think countries have enough tests, but even if they get tested and are positive then what? There is no cure and until there are symptoms of difficulty with breathing they wont admit you. Spoke to a friend of mine in the USA and her husband was sick. Wanted to get tested they wouldn't test him, as he had not been out of the country. They sent him home and was told if he starts having breathing issues or gets worse come back.  Two days later he started having breathing issues. He's in the hosp now and on a ventilator.  Hopefully they will find a cure soon!

As with all viruses, prevention is the best cure. If you're elderly, pull up the drawbridge and fill the moat.

Seems perfectly normal.

Seems like an overreaction.
