Labour Minister Mr. Suchart Chomklin reported the proactive Covid-19 screening for insured persons following the “Workforce Fighting Together” project at the Bangkok Youth Center (Thai-Japan), Din Daeng. He said that the third day went according to the procedures prescribed by the Ministry of Public Health. If an insured person is found to be infected, they will be taken to an HQ (Hospital Quarantine) that is a hotel, according to the Ministry of Public Health’s procedures, which is a place to support symptomatic treatment and is in the care of a medical team as well. It aims to expand the screening to other provinces in the red category.

On April 19, 2021, Labour Minister Mr. Suchart Chomklin reported the progress of the proactive Covid-19 screening for insured persons following the “Workforce Fighting Together” project. He said that today was the third day of the proactive Covid-19 screening services for insured persons in the social security system under Section 33, 39, and 40 located in Bangkok. The efforts aim to reduce congestion and facilitate service users, utilizing the West Sports Building 1, Bangkok Youth Center (Thai-Japan), Din Daeng, Bangkok, as a test site. In this regard, Prime Minister General Prayuth Chan-ocha has concerns for insured persons who returned to the provinces and visited risky places over the Songkran festival. The Ministry of Labour has joined with the Ministry of Interior (Bangkok) and the National Health Security Office (NHSO) to organize a proactive Covid-19 screening program for insured persons, following the Workforce Fighting Together” project. Today was the third day of the services. The Labour Minister monitored the situation and urged the Social Security Office to examine the procedures to facilitate the insured persons.

Mr. Suchart also mentioned the report from the Social Security Office, which found that the overall progress of the project was satisfactory and smooth. The steps were still in line with the guidelines and measures set forth by the Department of Disease Control, Ministry of Public Health. If any insured is found to be infected, they will be taken to an HQ (Hospital Quarantine) hotel, according to the Ministry of Public Health’s procedures. Insured persons can be relieved, as the HQ is a place that supports symptomatic treatment and is in the medical team’s care. The Ministry of Labour has plans to expand the screening to other red areas such as Pathum Thani, Nonthaburi, Chonburi, Chiang Mai, and Samut Prakan.

“Insured persons who have visited places of risk, and those who fall into risk groups as specified by the Ministry of Public Health and NHSO, can register for a queue online at https://sso.icntracking.com/icntracking/self_register.php, to reserve a Covid-19 screening queue. If the infection is found, it can be treated promptly by the procedures prescribed by the Ministry of Public Health,” concluded Labour Minister Mr. Suchart.
