On April 17, 2021, Labour Minister Mr. Suchart Chomklin reported the proactive Covid-19 screening program for insured persons. Today was the first day of the proactive Covid-19 screening services for insured persons in the social security system under Sections 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. Today is the first 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. From the preliminary report, no obstacles were found. Everything operated smoothly following the steps and measures prescribed by the Department of Disease Control, Ministry of Public Health.
Ms. Duanghathai Poombansao, a visually impaired person, lives in the Khan Na Yao district. She is an insured person under Section 39 and was the first person at the site to get Covid-19 tested at 07.39 hours. She revealed that last week, she traveled to participate in public activities in Rayong province. A participant informed that he had traveled to a risky location and that she had been in close contact with the person during the duration of the activity. Knowing that there was proactive Covid-19 screening for insured persons at the Thai-Japan Bangkok Youth Center in Din Daeng, she asked relatives to apply and reserve a queue through the https://sso.icntracking.com/icntracking/self_register.php system and got a queue this morning. She said that she is happy and thankful to the government for this program, making it more convenient for insured persons, whereby the screening was quick.
“Insured persons returning from other provinces or visiting 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.
