A Glimmer of Hope?

 

Daily Dose: A Glimmer of hope?

The numbers reported for Covid19 fell below 100, a number that we had no experience in weeks/months since the outbreak in the dorms. 

On the economic front, packed malls, rising property and COE prices do not reflect the 'worse recession' since independence. A sign that the pandemic does not affect everyone equally.


1) 61 New Cases today

56 Dorms 

2 Community (SC)

3 Imported (2 LT Pass, 1 Dependant Pass)

While the dorms are cleared, there are still 22,500 workers serving quarantine. While the headline numbers are low today, there is still a chance for a higher spike when clearing this batch.

2 SC cases were identified. They have linked cases to existing cases. One of them is 1 year old!

3) Packed Malls, rising property and COE prices do not reflect worse recession.

“Even though this is the biggest recession since independence, this is also a very uneven recession whereby certain segments of the economy are bearing the brunt more than the rest. Unfortunately, it is the lower-income group

4) A mix of Online and in-person classes for undergrads

In the coming two weeks, university students starting the new academic year will be attending a mix of classes which will be conducted fully online or in-person on campus — in some cases, classes for the same module will involve a hybrid of both arrangements — depending on the number of participants for example.
