Thailand’s Department of Disease Control (DDC) is enabling people to make appointments for COVID-19 tests, using the QueQ app.
DDC Director-General Dr Opas Karnkawinpong said the app enables people to receive confirmation for a test the next day, if they register between 8am and 6pm. After submitting their request, applicants will receive a time for their test and must arrive at least 15 minutes beforehand. The app is available to download from both the Google Play store and Apple’s app store.
The DDC is offering the COVID-19 antigen tests at the Dhupateme Royal Thai Air Force Sports Stadium in Pathum Thani and at the Rajamangala National Stadium in Bangkok until the end of this month.
Mass testing at the Thai-Japan Bangkok Youth Centre in Din Daeng district ended on 23 July. Between 12-22 July, 1,000 of the 10,000 tests conducted came back positive.
