Merry Go Round



Daily Dose: Merry Go Round

Covid19 comes back in full circle with another case detected from the dorm. From a streak of 15 days without a case, we now have 4 days with community case including one from the dorm that was our weak spot.

It is a Merry Go Round

1) 10 Covid19 cases

  • 8 Cases imported case
  • 1 Community
  • 1 Dorm

Community case is unlinked and detected through bi-weekly Rostered Routine Testing of workers at the frontline of Covid19. Unsurprisingly, she is a cleaner at the transit area at Changi Airport. Given the steady flow of imported cases, it would be possible that transmission is via this group. 

The dorm case was also unlinked signalling that it is not the end for Covid19 in dorms
