The owners of the Grand Bella Hotel have generously offered their establishment to be converted into a field hospital to treat coronavirus (COVID-19) patients.

 

PATTAYA:--The owners of a Pattaya hotel will allow authorities to use the premises as a field hospital to treat coronavirus (COVID-19) patients.

 

Chonburi Governor Pakarathorn Thienchai accepted the offer to convert the Grand Bella Hotel and approved the move pending inspection of the premises to determine whether it had all the amenities needed to set up the medical facility.

 

The hospital is around the corner from and just behind Pattaya Memorial Hospital between Center Road and 2nd Road in central Pattaya.

 

A inspection by representatives of the Chonburi Health Office, officers from the National Health Security Office (NHSO), officials from Pattaya City and Banglamung Hospital, determined the hospitalhad proper air ventilation, up to standard waste water and waste disposal systems, and ease of transport of patients. It was noted that any minor improvements would be handled before a final decision would be made.

 

The field hospital could be operational by April 9. Initially the NHSO will utilise Building B, which has 134 rooms.

Not now, or after the Virus is " eradicated ", and sterilised.

Why are more field hospitals required with such a low infection rate?

Exactly the same thing I thought when reading this headline.

Because the testing rate is very low and the number of actual cases (remember a quarter to a half show no symptoms but are still infectious) is at this time unknowable. 

The number of beds in that hotel doesn't sound so large to me for a city this size.

So, that's one field hospital sorted, what about the rest, and what about a field morgue while your at it?

need to get income for the hotel. Once declared a hospital they will receive payment presumably regardless if it is full or empty.

Would never have liked.

No more Indians (which was their predominant clientele) and now trying another business.

(a mate had asked me about it two years ago)
