Daily Dose : Covid19 Hightlights Apr 17



728



Good Morning. Today's Daily Dose will be a hard pill to swallow.


1) 728 new cases in Singapore It is another day high for Singapore. -Cases in the community: 48 The reported cases are higher than the average of 38 for the week. -Work Permit holders (residing outside dormitories): 26 The number of new cases amongst Work Permit holders residing outside dormitories has increased, from an average of 9 cases per day in the week before, to an average of 15 per day in the past week. -Work Permit holders (residing in dormitories): 654 This high number is due to the aggressive testing at the dorms. 5 new clusters -Leo Dorm (21) -SJ Dorm (7) -Westlite Mandai (31) -Grandworkd Building (7) -17 Sungei Kadut Street (6)

While the numbers look high, it is expected base on the aggressive testing. Given the numbers confined in the dorms, do not be surprise to see 10-20K confirm cases from this segment.

While we understand that the authorities want completeness in the report, there are many Singaporeans who are emotionally invested in this. Could consider releasing an overview at an earlier fixed time followed by the full report thereafter.
