The Right Direction



 Daily Dose: The Right Direction

We had reached Day 8 of zero local community cases. This is looking good. If we reach 2 weeks ( incubation period of Covid19) without a case, our prediction is that there might be an announcement for Phase 3. 


1) 5 Covid19 cases

5 Imported

No local cases but imported cases continued to stream in. These include Work Permit Holders, Student Pass Holder and a Short Term Visit Pass Holder who is here for medical treatment. The cases were from Myanmar, India and Bangladesh.
