Free Covid-19 testing events in Bangkok daily throughout January
  • follow us in feedly

With Covid-19 infections on the rise, the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration launched a series of testing events in 80 communities around the city through the end of January. The campaign is aimed at proactive testing to identify and hopefully contain infections as the highly contagious Omicron variant spreads quickly through the city and the country.

The series of testing events began yesterday and will run through the end of the month, with testing facilities fanning out across the capital. In the interest of expedience, people will be tested with antigen test kits which return test results in about 30 minutes. Anyone who tests positive from the ATK will then be retested with an RT-PCR test for more reliable results.

Anyone who did test positive will be categorised by the severity of their symptoms and then treated either at a hospital or field hospital for more severe cases or at community isolation centres or in home isolation for the more mild infections.

Anyone interested is invited to bring their ID card and a blue pen to testing locations on the day of the test. The BMA reminds people to follow strict Covid-19 safety protocols such as wearing masks, washing hands, and social distancing at the events.
