Police raided a clinic in Pathum Thani’s Jewish district earlier this week for allegedly conducting unauthorized Covid19 testing and arrested two Thai suspects there.
The clinic’s owner, Wasita (surname withheld) has been charged with operating an unlicensed medical facility and faces five years in prison and/or 100,000 baht in fines.
An employee, Pornnapha (surname withheld) has been charged with performing unlicensed medical procedures and faces up to three years in prison and/or fines of up to 60,000 baht.
The performance was announced in a press conference convened yesterday afternoon by the Central Investigation Bureau, Department of Health Service Support (HSS), Food and Drug Administration and Pathum Thani Public Health Office.
This matter came to light when HSS received a report from the provincial health office that a clinic was illegally conducting rapid antigen testing.
HSS then appealed to the Consumer Protection Department (CPPD) to investigate the matter.
