From the cave to quarantine: Thai boys still face health issues

Eight boys rescued from cave in northern Thailand

Thailand Cave Rescue Saves 8 Children Trapped For Weeks Underground

Thailand has been riveted by the dramatic rescue mission to save the "Wild Boars" team after they first got trapped in Tham Luang more than two weeks ago by rising floodwaters.

Eight of the boys were rescued by a team of Thai and worldwide divers on Sunday and Monday.

Rescue personnel prepare the transport for the evacuation of the boys and their soccer coach trapped in a flooded cave in the northern province of Chiang Rai, Thailand, Tuesday in this photo obtained from social media. They did get a treat, however: bread with chocolate spread that they'd requested.

According to Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-chau the boys were given "anti-anxiety" medication before they began making their journey out of the caves, the Guardian reports. In a drama that has received press coverage across the world, two British cave rescue specialists, workign with Thai military teams, found the 13 on a bank in a partly flooded chamber several kilometers inside the complex on Monday, last week. The phrase, a battle cheer that the elite SEAL unit adopted from the U.S. Navy, has become an global hashtag used by people to show their support and gratitude to those involved in the rescue mission.

"The kids are footballers, are strong and have high immunity", Jesada said when asked how they survived so long. "But we will have a psychiatrist to evaluate them".

The boys remain in quarantine but some of their parents have been able to see their children through the glass. Four boys and the coach are still deep inside, and authorities have indicated they're continuing with their so-far successful effort to bring the boys out guided by experienced divers.

Health insurers say it is a move that could drive up premium costs and create marketplace uncertainty. Risk adjustment is a key aspect of market stabilization under the ACA, also known as Obamacare.

It was clear doctors were taking a cautious approach. The eight boys brought out by divers over the previous two days were doing well and were in good spirits, a senior health official said.

Shortly after the full rescue was announced, President Trump sent a congratulatory message.

Following news of the successful rescue mission of all 12 trapped Thai boys and their coach overnight, US President Trump tweeted "Such a handsome moment - all freed, great job!"

He added: "Such a handsome moment - all freed, great job!" "Our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected". The world feared the worst as the search operation stretched over nine days, before the missing team was finally discovered stranded in a flooded cave some 2.5 miles from the complex's entrance.

The divers and medic were taken by ambulance to a hospital in Chiang Rai to be examined as a precaution, officials said.

"We would be honoured to welcome the team from the Wild Boars Football Club and their rescuers to Old Trafford this coming season".
