Overview of COVID19 Statistic in Singapore



Singapore COVID-19 Statistics



With the slew of measures introduced last evening, just how bad is the situation in Singapore?

We break it down for you with graphics from Covid19 SG and MOH





OVERVIEW
Source  Covid19 SG

As of March 24th, there are a total of 558 cases in Singapore. Of the cases, there are 401 in a hospital with 17 in ICU (base on official figures from MOH and differs from COVID19 SG) As of March 24th,  there are 2 deaths reported. This is a relatively low 0.4% of the cases compared to global average of 4+%.



WHO GETS IT?

In terms of Nationality, the latest contingent is Singaporean residents (Singapore Citizens, PRs)
This is followed by Indonesia and Chinese. The Indonesians are mostly those that came to Singapore seeking treatment. The Chinese were mostly the first initial imported cases from Wuhan. Surprisingly for Singaporeans,  the bulk of it is from imported cases and not local transmission


GENDER AND AGE

Another area of interest is on the Gender and Age of the confirmed cases. Surprisingly the majority of the cases are in the age group of 21-30. These are mainly made up of students returning from overseas studies. The vulnerable group (Age 61-100) are considerably lower with a majority from the SAFRA Jurong Cluster

Males are also seen as more susceptible to the virus compared to females. There were also confirmed cases of children age 20 and below, debunking the myth that the virus does not impact children.

Imported cases have been under the headlights. Since March 5, Imported cases has risen to 299 cases as of March 24. This meant that over 53% of the confirmed cases are imported. As for active cases, imported cases now make up about 74% of the active cases. The rise in imported cases also result in the rise of unlinked cases in Singapore, topping 17 cases on March 24.

As seen from MOH update as of 21 March, the Imported cases are made up mostly of Singapore Residents and LTP holders. The situation remains the same today. Base on our report on March 18 , most of the imported cases are Singapore Citizens. As for the source of infection, the majority are from UK and USA. This is unsurprising as the destinations are well known for overseas students. It does not help that the numbers are escalating from the same countries too.

As seen from the above, the virus does not distinguish between age, sex or nationalities. It is one that will affect people of all walks of life.

The only way to deal with this is to stay vigilant. With the slew of measures announced yesterday, it would only be right if we adhere strictly to it. For now, do defer all non-essential trips out from your house. Stay in as much as possible.

The only way we can overcome this is to stay disciplined. If we choose otherwise, it will overwhelm us sooner than later.
