First case of human-to-human transmission in Thailand recovers fully


NONTHABURI –The first and only Thai who got infected by coronavirus via human-to-human transmission has fully recovered.

The taxi driver who got infected by the new type of coronavirus thanked the doctors and nurses of Bamrasnaradura Hospital in Nonthaburi, the people who helped him during his treatment, as well as Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul.

“Thank you all for treating me. I feel strong now. The director of Bamrasnaradura Hospital called me every day, assuring me that I will be better, that I should not stress, that I should just eat and sleep and regain my strength,” he said while in tears.

According to a report, the taxi driver visited a hospital due to fever and cough. When doctors confirmed that he got infected by the virus, he went to Bamrasnaradura Hospital on January 28 where he was treated until fully recovered.

After spending only three days in the hospital, doctors concluded that he recovered fully on January 31. On Wednesday, Feb 5, his test result showed that there’s nothing to worry about anymore — that he is free from the virus and allowed to be with his family.
