What are the symptoms of COVID-19 infection?

You might not feel anything for a few days. Some young people do become infected, but generally the older you are, the higher the chance of having symptoms or complications.

Key Symptoms Are

  • fever (body temperature of 37.5 Celsius or higher)
  • diarrhoea (in some cases)
  • loss of taste and smell (in some cases)
  • fatigue
  • sore throat
  • a dry cough
  • difficulty breathing

Who should I contact if I develop symptoms ?

If you have recently returned from Bangkok or outside Thailand, or if you have been in contact with a sick person, please self-assess (using the link) and then follow the instructions or call the COVID-19 numbers provided by the Ministry for foreigners.

If you have difficulty breathing, chest pain, severe fatigue or high fever,

you should call 1669 for emergency assistance

stating your symptoms clearly to the Call Centre. An ambulance will be sent with a team equipped with protective wear.

If your symptoms are less severe, you can contact any medical professional or go to Nakhon Ping Hospital or to Suan Dok Hospital, both of which have separate buildings for respiratory infections. Follow the signs carefully and do not enter the main hospital building.

Private hospitals may refer you to these two hospitals. It is very important that you also inform the hospitals or the call centre at the designated numbers (see above) about your symptoms and risk factors.
