Daily Dose : 20 / 20



Good Morning



We breach the 20K mark with today's Daily Dose. We also hit 20 official deaths today. Why are we at this dire state today? They say hindsight is 20/20 but it may be the result of a big oversight instead.

In any case, it's a holiday today too. Happy Vesak's Day!



1) 788 new cases, 20198 in total
Work Permit Holders Dorms 759
Community Spread 29 ( 11 SC/PR/WP 16 Work Permit ex Dorms 16)

2) 5 local cases linked to Dorms
4 staff and 1 unknown are linked to dorms

We had highlighted this as a potential spread to the community via dorms a few days back. The data over the past 4 days supported this. It is time to assess this threat given the exposure we have to it.

4) 6 confirmed Covid19 foreigners died but they are not listed as death from Covid19
Indian National 32 - Coronary Heart Disease
Indian National 46 - Fall from Height
Malaysian 40 - Heart Attack
Malaysian 80 - Unknown
Bangladeshi - 44 Heart Attack
Bangladeshi- 47 Coronary Heart Disease

4 of them died from Heart-related disease/ Heart Attack. Given the age group 30-40,it is rather surprising that heart disease is prominent in this group as heart disease is more prominent among adults age 65. These cases might be worth a second look to reassess the connection to Covid19.
