Ministry of Manpower (MOM) has responded to claims about breaches of COVID-19 health protocols, a lack of access to medical support and poor quality of catered food at a dormitory at Jalan Tukang in Jurong.

On Wednesday (Oct 13), officers from MOM's Forward Assurance and Support Teams (FAST) were deployed to the dormitory to investigate the claims.

The Singapore Police Force also responded to a call for assistance to the dormitory at about 12.55pm, said the ministry.

The allegations were made in an online article published on Weixin on Tuesday, an MOM spokesperson said on Wednesday in response to CNA's queries.

Weixin is the domestic version of WeChat used in China.

"MOM's preliminary investigations found that there were indeed some delays in conveyancing workers who tested positive for COVID-19 from their rooms to a dormitory recovery facility or centralised recovery facility to recover," it said.

The ministry said it was working on transferring those who need further medical care to healthcare facilities for treatment.

It added that roommates of positive cases were allowed to return to work upon producing a negative antigen rapid test result.

When CNA arrived at the migrant workers' dormitory at about 4pm, there was a heavy security presence, with four Special Operations Command vehicles and several other armoured police vehicles parked along the road outside.

Dozens of police officers were in protective gear, along with other officers in red berets.
