Daily Dose : COVID19 Apr 14



386 cases.



 Good morning. Today's daily dose is a bitter pill to swallow given the exceptionally high number of cases reported. Let's take a look at what happened on Day 7 of CB


1) The highest number of confirmed cases reported
There are a total of 386 cases reported
Link to clusters - 280
Link to other cases -12
Contact tracing -94 (64 Work Permit cases, 30 Singapore Residents)

While the numbers, on the whole, are alarming, the wider community spread remains a manageable number.

However, there are 3 major concerns.
Widespread among dorms
The spread has led to over 20 dorms and construction sites all over the island impacted. With 250-300 K FW, this will be our Achilles heels. Mass test might be needed for this group and segregation to be done as soon as possible.

Tax on healthcare resources. 
There are now a total of 976 active cases (Apr 12) in hospital, should this continue to rise, the hospitals may be overwhelmed in time to come.

Tax on manpower. 
This group is the invisible hands that keep Singapore growing. From maintaining clean streets to repairing of public facilities to a major link in the supply chain, a big hit would literally cause a standstill in the republic. The question is, would we have the tenacity to step in their roles should the need require?
