It takes only 1



 Daily Dose: It takes only 1

So the streak has ended. Out of the blue, 1 local community case emerge. The worse part was not only had he contracted Covid19, but it was also ascertained that he had put another 11 family members at risk by breaking the law with a social gathering of more than 5 in a public place.

This is incredulous. While getting Covid19 is not great, by flouting the rules in the process will also delay Phase 3. Part of Phase 3 implementation is compliance with safety management measures. This episode only shows that people are unable to comply with present measures, thus further relaxation may be too risky. To make it worse, this is NOT the only case of flouting the measures reported yesterday!
