A local quarantine facility in Rayong has been turned into a 70-bed field hospital and preparations are under way to turn a resort and a naval base in Sattahip district of Chon Buri into field hospitals, to accommodate new COVID-19 patients, after the Rayong provincial hospital ran out of in-patient beds, said Rayong’s Governor Charnna Iamsaeng today (Friday).
