BKK Covid-19 (http://bkkcovid19.bangkok.go.th) has been visited by more 18,000 people since its launch on April 3.
Bangkok governor Aswin Kwanmuang said the BMA was sending officials to homes of people who learned that they were at risk, to test them for infection.
Those whose test positive for Covid-19 will be immediately admitted to a hospital. The service is aimed to curb the spread of the virus by identifying new infections and isolating them in public health facilities.
The BMA also expressed its gratitude to the MTlikesara Facebook page run by a medic who is helping to screen people and publicise measures and risks during the crisis.
