AIS announced the cooperation with Chulabhorn Royal Academy yesterday.

 

The company aims to turn Chulabhorn Hospital into the first Thai treatment hospital that integrates 5G tech into all dimensions of medical services.

 

AIS also disclosed every province nationwide has had 5G network coverage since April 13, less than two months after commercial 5G services were kicked off on Feb 21.

 

AIS chief executive Somchai Lertsutiwong said yesterday 5G use cases have popped up during that time, especially for telemedicine.

 

In March, AIS began its mission to use 5G network support in medical work for the fight against the pandemic.

 

The operator has distributed 18 5G-enabled robots that can assist medical personnel in providing care for coronavirus patients to 17 hospitals.
