Daily Dose: Good news and Bad news

The  Bad News
The numbers of Covid19 cases spike up from 200+ to 900+ in one day. However, this was expected as we are in the last few days of completing these tests in the dorms. 

The Good news
The official word is that the testing will end by tomorrow (Friday).

That said, the last batch of FW tested belong to the high-risk group ( dorms with high infection rate). Expect to see the numbers in thousands for the next 2 days. After that, when dorms are completed, the numbers are likely to fall dramatically to around 10-20 base on the pass week numbers for imported and community cases.

1) 908 new Covid19 cases
903 Dorms
1 Community
4 Imported ( 3 DP holders, 1 ST Visit Pass Holders)
As mentioned earlier, the spike is due to the final testing of dorms. Dorms testing are expected to be cleared by Friday. 
The imported cases include an ST visit pass holder even though ST visit is not allowed in Singapore. The exception was that she is an elderly whose family are Singapore residents. As per yesterday, all imported cases are from India.
