Mask Free Days?


 

Daily Dose:  Mask Free Day?

Yesterday, this group of ladies was spotted posing in front of the Peranakan houses along Joo Chiat Road. On pre COVID19 days, this would be a normal occurrence.  However, at this time, it is incredulous.

While the community spread remains low, it does not mean that COVID19 is done and dusted. The group do not have masks on when they were taking photos. Not only it is a blatant disregard for laws, but it is also a slap to everyone who is trying to keep Singapore safe. To be fair, there are many others who would try to circumvent the mask laws by either smoking, eating or drinking as excuses. To be maskless on a popular destination with the excuse of getting a photo is simply 'bo chap' attitude.

Unless they are below 6, masks are still a requirement in Singapore unless you are at your own home or dining out.  

For the record, they had been reported via OneService App. 

On the flip side, dorms and local cases dip to 4 today, a record low in recent months. Maybe it may be time to review the laws. Until then, Masks are still compulsory. 

Low cases do not mean no cases.

Stay Safe!


1) 19 COVID 19 Cases

  • 3 Dorms (1 Quarantine, 2 Surveillance)
  • 1 Community (PR)
  • 15 Imported (3 SC, 2PR, 2 WP, 1 W Permit, 2 Student PAss, 1 ST Visitor, 4 Special Pass)


A jump in imported cases overshadowed the decline of dorms. Dorms cases reached a new low with only 3 cases reported. There is 1 case in the community who is linked to previous cases.  This is also the first time that imported cases exceed dorms in 6 months.

Imported cases, however, jumped to 15. 

The cases breakdown as follows

  • India - 8 
  • Philippines - 5 (with 4 travel history to Malaysia)
  • Indonesia-1
  • France -1 

It is beginning to look like the shift to infection is back to imported cases.

2)Eatery at Junction Nine mall in Yishun visited by Covid-19 cases while infectious on 3 consecutive days

The infectious persons had visited the eatery on Sept 22 between 7am and 5pm, Sept 23 between 7am and 3pm and Sept 24 between 7am and 5pm

It could either mean that the infected was working there or the food as really good for that person to stay there the whole day. Either case, do self-monitor if you had been to there during these times.
