Dont worry. We still have 2 more weeks b4 NDP.
I am sure we will magically turn 3 digits community case to zero cases within the 2 weeks. We can achieve!
we WILL achieve under the capable leedership of pap :(

out of 52, got many can later link up...
but the problem is 52 unlinked = 30-40+ potential cluster.

jialat liao... should mandate WFH for all bar essential worker?

Issue is that yesterday was 30 unlinked. Later at night still 30 unlinked.

Earlier few days indeed got a couple of cases became linked, but then it was into the linked and not quarantined group.
I mean, that is the only possible route. Cannot be linked but already quarantined, just impossible. :ROFLMAO:

It could be that cos now people can self test, kiasu people buy the test and test themselves....

It means that all along there is this reservoir of asymptomatic cases but no one had to see dr. Now they self test. I notice the increase in unlinked happened after you can buy the test kit from guardian pharmacy.
I think self test positive need confirmation with a subsequent PCR. In the meantime, no count.

eh pls bring back reports on places visited by covid leh.

imagine if they didn't stop the reporting then we would've known where the covid cases went to, and dun have to wait until now then tell us things like those who went XXX between 7-21 july....that's a FARKING long stretch hor!
at least tell us the locations so we can siam then won't have so many cases liao

Curve flattened while unlinked go up. As expected, it's gonna become endemic.
Yea, will be rather difficult to contain..... unless they significantly expand the contact tracing team (which is already rather big at the moment). This is a real time thingy.

For the love of Singapore, hope we really can hit 80% asap. And then later 85-90% after the < age 12 phase 3 results come. It looks to be a real race at the moment.

Bros, KTV started nearly 2 weeks ago already.

Those unlinked cannot still be on an increasing trajectory if it's due to primary infection from the KTV cluster. Coz the peak is around 5 days mark (a bit faster for delta).

The unlinked today are secondary or even tertiary round liao. Of coz no doubt there cld be 1 or even 2 who are ktv cluster primary infection.


This is also, by definition, COMMUNITY TRANSMISSION. ie unlinked.
Linked is not defined to be community transmission.

The numbers don't even look good. Even to the point of look suspicious. Don't know why people think it's flattening.

Unlinked are basically mini clusters.
They create clusters at home and the work place.

The funny thing is the linked cases should be proportionally higher but this is not the case and this is illogical. The linked numbers should lag behind the unlinked cases. I suspect they are holding numbers and will show hand the real numbers on Friday or Saturday and stop all travelling. I won't be surprise to see 300 to 600 over cases tomorrow.

They have no choice but to lockdown eventually and this is a cok up worse than the dorms. They knew Indonesia and Malaysia cases were increasing but failed to guard the ports which have constant contact with them.

Now the infection is already in the blood. From the fishport, to markets, around Singapore and to individual households. This is the real fallout which we haven't faced yet. :(
The money that is loosely spent last year should have been spent this year instead, now they are in a tight fix, no money to invoke another circuit breaker but want to announce endemic instead.

the current measures is definitely not enough, most likely have to go back Phase 1 riao.

Last year announce Circuit Breaker cause not prepared to fight the virus, now probably have to announce another Circuit Breaker or Phase 1
