Daily Dose : One Stop Daily Highlights COVEID19



923 cases and McDonald's closure



Good Morning!

The Daily Dose of Covid19 news is getting bitter every day. Grab some coffee to drown out the taste.


1) 942 cases reported, 5992 cases
Another high number due to the aggressive testing at Dorms
893  were tested positive in Dorms
27 Work Permit Holders tested positive outside of dorms
22 cases in Community

Although the community numbers are down, we still need time to ascertain if the CB is working because of the following reasons

- The 27 work permit holders are tested outside of Dorms, so they should be included in the General community count. That would mean that there are 49 general community cases yesterday instead of 22

-The large number of FW in dorms is a potential threat to overwhelming the health system. While most are healthy now, there is a chance that down the road, some would need more intensive treatment. We could not discount that for now.

2 McDonald's to close for business till May 4


This includes McDelivery and Drive-Thru. The last order will be at 1030am and 8 am respectively.  Closure probably due to 7 cases reported at their premises around Singapore

3 All construction workers holding work permits or S Passes to be placed on compulsory Stay Home Notice


It will be effective Monday (Apr 20 ) to May 4

This will include dependent pass holders of these workers. Personally, we think SHN should apply to all members of the household that are staying with them. This was a loophole during the imported cases period and that might have indirectly cause the wider outbreak given asymptomatic carriers can be contagious

Masks are now available both online and in pharmacy shops, there are no reason why you could not get one. For the record, repeated offenders can be prosecuted in courts
