CM Field Hospital 2 flooded with generosity, as CMU sets up donation point at Women’s Dorm 7
CMU Women’s Dormitory No. 7 has been used as the donation point for necessities, dry food, and beverages for students and staff who have tested positive for COVID-19 and are receiving treatment at Chiang Mai Field Hospital 2 (CMU Women’s Dormitory No. 5).
The resurgence of COVID-19 has resulted in a greater number of cases and a wider scope of affected areas. Concerned about the well-being of all parties, Chiang Mai University promptly established the Emergency Operation Centre (EOC) to provide integrative and intensive care and assistance for CMU students and staff.
Women’s Dormitory No.5 has been transformed into Chiang Mai’s second field hospital, an extension of Maharaj Nakorn Chiang Mai Hospital that cares for CMU students and staff who have tested positive for COVID-19. During their stay, CMU provides necessities, three daily meals, and snacks. In severe cases, the patients will be promptly transferred to Maharaj Nakorn Chiang Mai Hospital.
Since April 12, 2021, a donation point has been set up for necessities, dry food, surgical masks, hand sanitiser, tissues and toilet paper, snacks, beverages, and drinking water, as well as beds and bedding equipment. Parents, teachers, alumni, and the general public in Chiang Mai and nearby provinces have made many donations, demonstrating the generosity that Thai people have always had for one another in tough times.
CMU would like to thank everyone for the overwhelming generosity towards CMU students and staff. We will overcome this crisis together.
