    Injured people of New Year's Eve bombings recovering : Health Ministry


    The victims of the New Year's Eve bombings have all made good progress in recovering from their injuries, the Public Health Ministry said Monday.

    The five victims, including the most severe case treated at Rajvithi Hospital, were doing well, said Public Health Minister, Dr Mongkok na Songkhla.Samruey Sridao, who was seriously wounded by the bomb at the Victory Monument, has been taken off artificial respiration.
    All five of the bomb victims treated at Rajvithi have also been given psychological counselling to help them recover from the trauma.
    All of them will need to be checked and receive treatment for any hearing impairment that could have been caused be the sound of the bombs, said Dr Jesada Chokdumrongsuk, the director of Rajvithi.
    Twelve other victims, including two foreigners, who were being treated at five different hospitals in Bangkok were also recovering well, said Mongkol.
    A total of 43 people were injured, of whom three were killed, in the bombings at eight locations around the capital on New Year's Eve.
    National Police Chief, General Kowit Wattana, visited the bomb victims at Rajvithi, Chulalongkorn and Police General hospitals yesterday morning.
    He gave Bt10,000 financial assistance to each injured victim.
    Meanwhile, the Justice Ministry yesterday instructed the Rights and Liberties Protection Department to distribute compensation to bomb victims.
    According to the ministry's deputy permanent secretary, Tongthong Chandransu, the families of those who died would each get Bt100,000; victims with minor injuries would each get Bt10,000; those needing hospitalisation would each get Bt20,000; while those who were disabled would each get Bt30,000.
    The compensation will be paid from Monday.
