Are we there yet?


Daily Dose: Are we there yet?

Singapore reported the lowest number of COVID-19 cases since Phase 2 HA.

While the local community cases are still considered higher than pre Phase 2 HA, it is really nitpicking since we are at 5 for the day. The fact that all 5 cases are linked to previous cases showed that there is a chance that we may have this contained? 

This showed 2 things. One, the measures implemented at Phase 2 HA works. Two, we did not need a full Circuit Breaker to get the results. Granted, today's situation of not dining out and meaning only in 2 has been restrictive especially for that business that is directly affected by it, nonetheless, it showed that policies can be tweaked to get results.

As for vaccination for teens, I had signed my child up. The earliest date is not until a week later, but it should be in time before school starts. The waiting period for the second dose is about 6-8 weeks depending on where you choose to be vaccinated.

With the vaccination program and the low cases, many would be like children on a long car trip. The one question on everyone's mind.... are we there yet?

1) 14 COVID-19 cases

  • 5 Community
  • 9 Imported

Community cases are all linked. Unlike the previous days, no children are on the list.

2) Unlinked Cases connection to clusters found within days in Singapore

Kudos to contact tracers and the existing apps. As long as we can link the cases, we can ringfence and stop the spread.
