The Ministry of Health has permitted Covid-19 patients infected with the Delta variant to get treatment at home or private clinics.

Authorised clinics and hospitals are also allowed to treat Covid-19 patients without having to separate those infected Delta and Alpha variants.

In a decision dated October 5, health minister Mam Bun Heng said the treatment of patients detected with Delta and the quarantine guidelines for people who have been in contact with them are the same as those for patients infected with Alpha.

“Patients with the Delta variant can get treatment at home with active participation from local authorities in ensuring their strict implementation of health and administrative measures,” he said.
