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

Recommended Posts

I read 4 out of 5 infected people show no symptoms.

If you have no symptoms then I would avoid being tested.

You could get dragged off to isolation, only to find you are not insured for a false alarm.

Get tested if you are experiencing any respiratory symptoms.

Some tests (anti-body tests) can confirm you have had it and are now recovered,

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

Given the number of Thai's decamping back to the homeland from known hotspots then legging it rather than do the quarantine it could well it's the Johnny ferrangs who are the ones at risk from the little ghosts not t'other way about ..

Perhaps already stated, but please, do NOT bother getting tested unless you have symptoms (of COVID-19).

 

Seriously, if you go and test negative, whoop tee do! You could contract the virus during testing (from some other patient), and will not test positive until 14 days later... or perhaps never.

No mention of the make and model of the test kit being used here either. With all the fuss about various test kits being sent back to China by various European nations for having low efficacy and accuracy, nobody has come up with the name of the gold standard make and model yet.

 

Paying 3500 to 5000 baht for a result that you were free of Covid-19 the day before? Looks like it's mostly the nice-but-dim foreigners that are buying it.

whats a "nice-but-dim" foreigner?

Im sure the comment about risky group would refer to age

Unsure, but of the 3009 confirmed cases in Thailand, only 360 are foreigners and the age group with the highest occurrence rate is 21-30 year olds.  So, perhaps just another  uninformed Thai official spreading misinformation.
