Are we in control?


 

Daily Dose: Is Covid19 in control in Singapore?

We have over 57,000 infections. Despite the high number, the situation in Singapore seems to be well contained.

- No patients in intensive care

-27 Deaths, the last one was n 14 July. 

-Low Community Cases

- Rank 52 worldwide, but the LOWEST death rates among the top 120 countries.


Looking at the numbers, it would be undeniable that Singapore has done a good job despite the high numbers. If you have been out during the weekends, you would probably notice more crowds at the malls, more people at attractions. We have a sense of normalcy sans mask-wearing. Perhaps there is a positive correlation.  

Keep it up Singapore!

5) Weekend entry restrictions lifted at Geylang Serai Market.

Footfall limited by capacity caps

"It doesn't make a difference. The safe distancing ambassadors are very strict with controlling the crowd, so it's not like more people can come into the market now," said Mr An Raihan, 35, who runs a sundry goods stall.

He lamented: "This doesn't make much sense to me, because there is no control on the number of people upstairs on the second floor."
