I am not sure if that is normal in many hospitals. I saw today COVID-19 Drive Thru in the Vibhavadi Hospital

I don't know the price, I was there for a regular visit.

I think it's a great idea. People can get tested with as little contact as possible to others.

There is a hospital near Ministry of Public Health that was offering tests for about 2000 baht when this first started. When their beds got full the price jumped substantially.

why would you spend 5400 for someone to tell your ill

its a bloody useless test

we need an antibody test !

yes, i know if you take this test and its positive you dont need an antibody test

if you get sick at this point good bloody chance you got irt save yer cash 

the drive throughs in the UK  no one used them 

some one invented a portable kit $100 plus $5 for the swabs could do six tests at a time so 5400 is bang out of order its 400 baht over what the gov is doling out for a months survival

Maybe if you want to see older relatives and you want to be sure you are not infected. That's just one out of many reasons.

They are also saying in hospitals that the tests are showing negative when its positive
so dont put those elderly relatives at risk

your meant to be self isolating anyway not visiting yer aunty

Pointless, You could catch it later that day, better to put the money towards treatment if you need it

It might surprised you, but lots of people can afford a couple of thousand THB.

TBO all tests are useless and a waste of money.

Just let the disease hit you, solutions will arrive for sure!

Save money, enjoy life (while it last)!

Sounds like it's most likely 5,400 baht, let us know when you get the test. I'll wait for the antibody test

[just let the disease hit you, solutions will arrive for sure! Save money, enjoy life (while it last)!] - yes, for some, enjoy the next couple of weeks and perhaps another fighting for breath until your heart or organs fail you.

 

The solutions haven’t arrived yet and ‘everything’ is being thrown at this fight - so what makes you think overwhelming the health services and a greater number of deaths will bring ‘solutions’ any faster than ensuring a critical healthy workforce on the front lines to research and fight this virus?

If I could get a burger and fries, maybe some onion rings with my drive through test, I might be moved to go...But it would have to include a supersize milkshake...
