6 Thai Provinces Welcome Back COVID-19 Infected Residents To Ease Bed Crisis

Six provinces are welcoming back residents who had worked in Greater Bangkok and other places with open arms in an attempt to prevent new infections.
Several provinces have separately introduced a “no one left behind” program since labour camps in Greater Bangkok were ordered to close for a month on June 28.
Both programs have the same objective: containment of Coronavirus by discouraging infected people, such as construction workers, from returning home, thus exacerbating the risk of the virus spreading across the country.
There are conditions that apply to residents returning to their home provinces for treatment, including not using public transportation, as that could spread the virus.
“We should let them back in openly so we can isolate them from others,” Lampang governor Narongsak Osottanakorn said on Thursday.
Bangkok hospitals reported a shortage of beds, and closures of camps in Bangkok and five surrounding provinces forced workers to return to their home provinces before enforcement began last Monday. Since then, some workers have returned home.  
It is unknown how many workers fled. According to the latest information published on Friday by the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration, about 200 workers in Greater Bangkok have tested positive, most of them in the northeastern region.
There have been 27 infected returnees reported in Chaiyaphum, while at least ten returned to Phitsanulok since the camps in the capital area were closed. Three days ago, 75 people arrived at Nakhon Ratchasima. In the other three provinces, data were not available immediately. 
Infected workers from Bangkok are being treated at Maharat Nakhon Ratchasima Hospital in Nakhon Ratchasima.
Assisting director Jade Boonyawongwirote said on Sunday the province decided to admit them to the hospital because they had little chance of finding beds in Bangkok.
Both the energy of the health personnel and the number of beds in the hospital were being drained by the welcome-back project. He said only 18 hospitals were left to handle coronavirus cases, but more hospitals in the province would be contacted to ease the incoming cases from Greater Bangkok.
