Covid 19 Imported Case Singapore : Where do they come from?



The recent days have seen a surge in Imported Cases.

From 0 import cases, we have risen to 40 cases within a week.

Here is a list of the cases stating the origin and dates detected since March 5  were new imported cases surface

Tally
Europe - 18
Indonesia-7
Malaysia 5
USA -4
Phillippine-3
Japan-1
India-1
Thailand-1



Observations
European numbers include other countries NOT place in the restricted list (Italy, France, Spain, Germany). It may be time to reassess if the ban should apply to European countries that have an increasing trend of Covid19 cases as Europe is now assessed to be the next Epicenter for Covid19.

Indonesia has seen the next biggest import cases. The Country has only declared 96 cases but there are already 7 imported cases to Singapore. Most of the cases imported are deemed to be deliberate with cases exhibiting symptoms in Indonesia and subsequently arrive in Singapore for treatment. Given the mismatch in numbers, it might be wise to have travel restrictions to be imposed for such visitors.

Malaysia imports are all from one event in Malaysia - Mass Religious Mosque Gathering.

USA and Philippine are not on the restricted list but there are already 4 imports from there.

Imported cases also include local citizens and residents who had been to the affected area.

The total imported cases over the past week have risen to 40. This does not include secondary infection to residents of Singapore. With global numbers increasing exponentially, it might be time to relook into our travel plans. Non-essential travel regardless of destinations should be reassessed. Even if the country is not on the restricted list, it does not necessarily mean that it is safe. With 30 out of 40 cases being Singapore Citizens, PR, SWP and LTP holders, the ones that are bringing back COVID19 are not visitors but ourselves.
