Good Morning



Another day, another record. This time we breach 14K mark. With the revelation that 21K FW tested with an over 50% infection rates, things might get darker over the next few weeks. Before we worry about the future, let's catch up to what is happening with our Daily Dose.

4) 21K foreign workers tested, about 12 K tested positive
Rate of infection at 57%
Given that there are about 315K FW, there is a likelihood that we might breach 100K in the coming weeks once tests is ramp up. Testing capacity for Migrant workers is at 3K per day. Current National capacity at 8K per day.

5) Where to house recovered covid19 FW?


With the anticipated increase in positive cases in FW, it will not only be an issue on where to house the positive cases but also where to house them when they recover. Logistically, it will be a major operation on a scale we have not seen before.

Where are we going to house the FW when they recover?
