Daily Dose: 30K




We had passed 30K...



Nope, not 30 K followers but 30K Covid-19 cases in Singapore.


1) 614 cases, bringing total to above 30k

Cases in Dorms: 610
Cases in the community: 4 (4SC/PR)

The good news is that there is no Work Permit outside dorms cases today.
The bad news is that we had breached 30K.
Furthermore, the numbers in dorms remain high with 2 new clusters identified in factory converted dorms.

2) 2 more preschool staff tested positive for COVID19

That is a total of 5 from the mandatory test for preschool staff before school reopens on Jun 2. While this has raised concerns, at least the tests would give assurance that the staff would
be virus-free when they are back to school

3)NCID to test thousand who were quarantine to study infection rate

We had called for this during the early days of the virus in Singapore . Close contacts were not tested for the virus before they were released from quarantine.

If it had been done earlier, perhaps we could detect cases that might have slip away.

Regardless, we do think the testing is necessary. It will most likely uncover more cases ‘hidden’ with no symptoms.
