Daily Dose June 9 : Election is Coming


Election is coming.

While the date has not been set, the latest measures on Election signals that we will have one in the midst of a Pandemic. With Phase 1 still in place, this also indicates that we might head to Phase 2 soon. Despite that, we would probably not see the crowds of the past election if it is to be held in the coming months.

1) 386 new cases
384 Dorms
2 Community (1 SC/1 WP)

The number of community cases reduces from 14 to 2. The jump to 14 the day before with 4 students tested positive was a controversial point. Interestingly, none of the cases is related to the 4 students today. Given the infectious nature of the virus, it would not be surprising to see the household members or related cases to the 4 students turning up in the numbers.


2) Recent rise in Covid19 community cases due to proactive screening

The situation is under control as per Health Minister Gan. For the record, cases jumped from 23 to 60 a week after circuit breaker ended.
