CU Prepares Isolation Units for Recovering COVID-19 Patients

King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital, the Faculty of Medicine, the Property Management Office at Chulalongkorn University, and the Ozone Hotel Samyan have come together to provide isolation units for patients recovering from COVID-19.  The partnership between the public and private sectors will help relieve the strain on hospitals from the increasing number of patients and allow recovery patients a chance to fully recuperate before returning back to their homes.

The isolation units, in operation since 24 March 2020, will help reduce the spread of the virus, making sure patients in recovery receive effective treatment and reduce future medical complications.  The patients in the isolation units will be able to get back to their daily activities and no longer need to stay in hospital. However, they will still need to be in the care of doctors and nurses to make sure they have no traces of the virus. Once a patient has been cleared by doctors, the patient will be allowed to return home. 

The accommodations are provided by Dr. Juraiporn Vijakanawong and Mr. Bunjong Vijakanawong, owners of the Ozone Hotel Samyan.  Located at Chula Soi 5, the hotel is conveniently close to King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital and the doctors and nurses who need to look after the recovering patients.  


Chula’s encouragement and support for research is excellent for teachers, students, and the public.
