Man in state quarantine dies of heart attack

A 56-year old Thai man, who passed away after he was taken to a state quarantine facility in the eastern province of Chon Buri on Friday, was diagnosed to have died of myocardial infarction, or a heart attack.

 

Dr. Sophon Iamsirikthavorn, director of the General Infectious Diseases Division of the Diseases Control Department, said Sunday that the victim had diabetes and kidney disease, when he arrived from India on Friday, and was immediately taken the state quarantine facility in Chon Buri.

 

The following day, however, he suffered chest pains and he was rushed, by ambulance, to a nearby hospital, said Dr. Sophon, adding that the man was still conscious upon his arrival at the hospital.

Just maybe they should take a person with symptoms like described, to a real hospital in the first place.

The article does not mention what kind of ambulance was used, in case the Ambulance is not kitted out with oxygen or AED, going to the nearest Medical facility sounds like a logical decision to me.

Also, in case you are not familiar with Chonburi, there are some very good hospitals.

What are you quoting? You simply do not understand what you read.

I was posting it would have been better to quarantine a person with diabetes and kidney disease in a hospital from start and not to a quarantine facility, hence no need for an ambulance at all. Maybe he would also be alive today.

That has nothing to do with Chonburi, Chaing Mai or Koh Chang. Just a portion of common sense could have been a factor that would have saved a life.

Next time, please read before quoting. 🙂

The virus has been shown to attack/damage the heart. It also creates blood clots. Pretty sure this is a COVID death.

“Rushed by ambulance to a nearby hospital.” I hope the ambulance crew and hospital crew were properly protected. If not, this could be an entry point. What good is a quarantine facility if people can be rushed out of it to a non prepared hospital?

Yes, before Covid heart attack has never been an issue.

The brainwashing is real.

Wondering if they did an exam with a check of his medical history, prior to quarantine? Looks like this may be a case of neglect, indifference and incompetence. Not surprising for this administration.

Nowadays, al long as it is not Covid related, it seems pretty irrelevant.

It doesn't say that he had the virus, just that he was in quarantine. "Pretty sure" seems like a stretch.

Do the authorities in any country give everyone who arrives a full medical or check their medical records? The answer is No. 

As the man didn’t complain of any illness when he arrived the authorities would have no reason to conduct a full medical examination. Therefore your comments stating, neglect, indifference and incompetence are totally unfounded and absurd.
