It Never Goes Away


 

Daily Dose : It never goes away


A day after announcing a slew of positive measures for Covid19 such as the easing of General Travel to NZ and Brunei, relaxation of F&B rules and outdoor exercises, there is a new report on a new cluster.

Given that the new cluster is located at Singapore's largest dorms, it is not exactly the news we were hoping for. Nonetheless, the key to keeping things status quo or moving up to the next level is to continue to be vigilant. Do not be complacent because the numbers are getting lower. We could very well revert back to CB days in the turn of a dime.


1) 50 new Covid19 cases

  • 43 Dorms
  • 2 Community (2 SC)
  • 5 imported cases (1 SC, 1 WP. 2DP, 1 SP)


There are currently 13700 in dorms serving quarantine. 

2 cases in community are both unlink. They were detected when admitted to hospital for an unrelated medical condition and under enhance testing. Age is at 56 and 63 with one working at ITE central.
