I have symptoms of Covid-19 after coming back from overseas. I tested positive for the disease and was isolated at a private hospital. Luckily, I had a mild case and was released when I had shown no symptoms for six days.

As of today, 10 days after I first tested positive, no one from Ministry of Public Health or any other state department has contacted me to inquire about who I was in contact with in Thailand or other countries, no advice or instructio­ns were given on what I should do post-release (besides medical advice from the hospital), and I still haven’t received results of the follow up Covid-19 test I took over a week ago.

What system is there in place to contain this disease in Thailand? What can we learn from neighbouri­ng countries like Singapore, Taiwan, South Korea or Hong Kong?
