With daily coronavirus cases in Pattaya surging above 300 today, Tuesday, August 3, 2021, police officers have now begun transporting the sick to Banglamung Hospital.

Nongprue Police Chief Pol. Col. Chitdecha Songhong and Pol. Lt. Col. Kengsart Nuanpong responded yesterday, August 2, to Winton Village on Nong Krabok Soi 10 where a 71-year-old woman gasping for breath had been waiting for a bed at Banglamung Hospital. One finally opened that day.
