Families allowed to visit boys up close

By The Nation




The 13 footballers rescued from a flooded cave in Chiang Rai province continued their good progress in physical and mental recovery from the ordeal at Chiangrai Prachanukroh Hospital, Public Health Ministry inspector-general Dr Thongchai Lertwilairattapong said on Friday.

Citing an update from hospital director Dr Chaiwet Thanapaisan, Thongchai said the youths' relatives were allowed to visit them on the condition that they wear a face mask and wash their hands before and after visiting.


The boys were divided into three batches in health updates: the first four brought out on July 8, the four rescued on July 9 and the last five brought out on July 10.


Thongchai said the first four had no fever, were able to eat normally, had normal eyesight while the two of them who had signs of pneumonia responded well to treatment, had normal lung X-ray results and had no blood infections.


The last five were reporting a lower fever, Thongchai said, and the one with signs of pneumonia was recovering and the three with an infection of the middle ear responded well to treatment.


There were all given a weeklong antibiotics treatment.


Thongchai said the hospital also provided mental care and consultations although they all appeared to have no stress nor worries over what happened.


Counselling would continue after their release from the hospital, he added.
