Hua Hin: Foreigners go to Hua Hin Hospital on first day of Covid-19 testing

Most of the people being tested for Covid-19 at Hua Hin Hospital on the first day of testing were foreigners, said director Dr Niran Chantrakoon. 

 

That was good, said the director, as this was the riskiest group. 

 

He said there were ten people tested on the first day after they advertised testing at 3,500 to 5,000 baht. 

 

The variance in the price was not explained in the New TV article. They said the results were available the next day. 

 

No one has yet been found to have the virus. 

 

Six people who were treated with Covid-19 at the hospital have all gone home. 

 

There are plenty of beds available, said Dr Niran who added that his hospital would utilise testing facilities in Samut Songkhram if the numbers warranted it.

 

Tests are done by putting a swab up the nose and in the throat - it is uncomfortable but relatively painless. 

 

People with insurance can use that to pay for the tests.

So I guess the next step is to make it mandatory for all foreigners to be tested, plus we will have to pay for the privilege........Ching, Ching for the hospitals.

With all the fuss about various test kits being sent back to China by various European nations for having low efficacy and accuracy

I wonder where the friendly CCP sent those returned kits to...

If you have no symptoms at all a test makes no sense as you can catch up the virus a day or couple of days later. If you feel any symptoms you should go, not only fever and throught , breezing problems might be a sign,  also check your smelling and tasting behaviour as this mostly come along at rhe very beginning of infection!
