NEWS ROOM
The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) has adjusted its active case finding services to enable the public access the testing as much as possible to cope with the spread of COVID-19 in Bangkok. The service is starting from 7 August 2021 onward. There are six testing spots around Bangkok, as follows: Sports Ground Pat 2, Ratchathewi district; the parking space of Building B, 1st floor, Government Complex, Lak Si district; 72nd Anniversary Min Buri Park, Min Buri district; Lumphini Youth Center, Pathum Wan district; the park under Rama VIII bridge, Bangphlat district; and Bangkhae Phirom market, Bangkhae district. The testing will be processed with the antigen test kits, and the test results will be ready in 30 minutes. For those who get a positive result, the medical personnel will retest them with the RT-PCR test to reaffirm the result. Infected people will be given the Favipiravir medicine or Fah Talai Jone (green chiretta or Andrographis paniculata) for the initial treatment, at the discretion of the physician. Patients with worsening symptoms will be sent to have treatment at a hospital. Those who wish to have the test should bring two copies of their ID document with the original one and should also bring their own pen to prevent getting infected with the virus from others.
