National Day

 

Daily Dose: Happy 55th Singapore


Today we celebrate Singapore's 55th Independence day. The mood may be more solemn but that does not mean we should not celebrate with a smile.


We had achieved much for this little red dot. Despite a pandemic threatening to derail our progress, we had managed to stay in shape. The storm has not passed us yet, but when it does, we know Singapore will continue to stand tall.


1) 132  new case

125 dorms 

1 Community (Singapore)

6 imported (1 WP, 2 Work Permit, 3 Dependant Pass)

The dorms had been cleared on Friday. Numbers are still streaming in as there are still workers in quarantine facilities to be cleared in the next  2 weeks. Nonethless, we should see a tapering down of the numbers soon.

Imported cases are from India, Indonesia and the US. These countries had a worse number of case that Singapore. The imported cases continue to be a concern as most of them are work pass, work permits or dependant passes. Given the origin of the country with high infectious rates, there should be a rethink if testing is necessary BEFORE allowing a flight to Singapore.
