In total, there are 27 new cases of COVID-19 infection in Singapore today.
India is of course top on the list. +67,294
Iran came in 2nd in Asia with +10,487
Indonesia 3rd with +9,944
Philippines is 5th place +5,402
Malaysia next at +5,150
Thailand came in 11th with +2,331 new cases.
Active Cases: 361 Community Facilities: 209 Hospitalised: 151 Critical: 1 Total Death: 34
The question here, of the 61,987 that were being discharged, who is there to monitor them?
Well, since most of them are imported cases, they are basically dorm people, so kena regularly swab by swab teams deployed at dorms. What then happen to those who are not dorm? I really don't know this part.
Ministry of Health (MOH) is an innovative, people-centred organisation, committed to medical excellence, the promotion of good health, the reduction of illness and access to good and affordable healthcare for all Singaporeans, appropriate to their needs.
