Things not to do before bedtime

 


Daily Dose: Things not to do just before bedtime

Many of us would work and eat on the bed before we sleep. While this had become a habit, it is actually hazardous to our health. In some instances, it may even cause death.

Smoking just before bedtime is an example. Smoking to keep awake can be a bad mistake, as seen by a recent case when a man likely cause a fire when he slept with his cigarette lit. Unfortunately, this led to a fire that eventually killed him.

Next time, when you are trying to sleep, put away all gadgets, snacks and other distractions. Just close your eyes and sleep.


1) 8 Covid19 cases

  • 1 Local Community case
  • 7 Imported cases
After 4 days of zero cases, a singular case pops up. The local case is an FDW who arrived in Singapore on Jan 20 and served SHN at a dedicated facility. She was swabbed on 2 Feb and was tested negative. However, she had attended a programme on 4 Feb where another FDW in the same programme was tested positive.  Her results came back positive, but the serological test was negative. Investigations do not prove that the 2 cases are linked.

Confuse?
So are we...
