Robots will be distributed to 20 hospitals that provide care for COVID-19 patients, said AIS exec

Recent numbers reveal that Thailand has reported a total of 2,423 COVID-19 cases and 30 fatalities since January, and while faring better than some, the country is still fighting back.

According to the Bangkok Post, as part of that fight, Thailand’s largest mobile operator Advanced Info Service (AIS) is combating the local outbreak in a number of ways, including installing 5G networks at hospitals and deploying telemedicine robots in an effort called “AIS 5G Battling COVID-19 for Thais.”

AIS Chief Executive Somchai Lertsutiwong said that since the carrier’s February launch, its 5G network has expanded to cover significant Bangkok districts and five major cities, and that the virus has not hindered that growth.
