Together they have launched the “DDC-Care” mobile application that enables the Department of Disease Control to track individuals at risk.

The Minister of MHESI, Suvit Maesincee has discussed with the deans of the faculties of medicine, directors of hospitals, and medical schools from all over the country, appropriate preparations to limit the spread of COVID-19 in Thailand.
