The two tourists are now in a field hospital of Lerdsin Hospital, reports the Bangkok Post.

The Department of Medical Services said Ankit Sejwal, 30, and Preeti Panwar, 32, were admitted for treatment at the field hospital of Lerdsin Hospital in Silom area last night (Jan 4).

The provincial health office of Chon Buri, where 499 new COVID-19 cases were recorded yesterday morning, initiated an urgent search for the two tourists.

Apirat Katanyutanont, chief of the Chon Buri health office, said their initial COVID-19 tests on arriving in the country returned negative.

The two left for the capital before their final test results were known, Dr Apirat said. The tests returned positive. The Indian embassy in Bangkok was asked to help find them and the search received wide media coverage, including using their photographs.

The Chon Buri public health office said last night the two had contacted the office.

Of the 499 new infections logged yesterday in Chon Buri, 336 were confirmed in Bang Lamung district, according to information published by the office.

The largest cluster in the province began with five infected navy sailors and has since expanded to more than 1,879 cases, the office said. All eateries serving alcohol in Pattaya are now required to screen all customers, using rapid antigen test kits.
