Meanwhile, 3,174 new cases were detected on the day, raising the national count to 228,539. Since the current COVID-19 wave began in early April, Thailand has logged 199,676 infections and 1,650 deaths.
Meanwhile, beds designated for patients in critical condition at all state-run hospitals in Bangkok are now fully occupied by COVID-19 infected patients with severe symptoms, while the last 20 of such beds are strictly reserved for emergency patients, health authorities said on June 22.
Dr Somsak Akksilp, Director-General of the Department of Medical Services said that under the current circumstances, infected patients’ access to hospital beds with life-saving equipment has become extremely limited.
Over the past couple of months, Bangkok and its surrounding provinces have continued to record more than 1,000 new cases of COVID-19 infections per day.
Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha has ordered the Public Health Ministry to ensure there are enough hospital beds to accommodate the large number of infected patients./.
