128 workers infected in new Samut Prakan factory cluster

Dr Non Chindavech, deputy provincial health chief for Samut Prakan, said 128 of the 309 workers tested were infected, 80 of whom are migrant workers. The foreign workers are waiting for hospital beds under the social security system, while Thai patients have been sent to Bang Phli Hospital.

Health officials will use the 120-room five-storey workers’ dormitory as a field hospital to accommodate infected migrant workers.

The provincial health office will also arrange for medical personnel to take care of patients based on their symptoms. Migrant workers with severe symptoms will be sent to the hospital as they are all in Thailand legally.

The health office will also conduct Covid-19 tests widely because infections are spreading.

On Tuesday, 201 new cases were confirmed in Samut Prakan, bringing the total number of infections in the province during the new wave to 2,368.
