There’s a reason why the Government told us to do something.
Or not to do something.
And if you’d have followed that advice, you’d not have been to any shopping malls in the last few days.
Good for you, because today, one of the new clusters is a shopping mall, and it comprises 11 patients.
Here’s today’s announcement.
49 New COVID-19 Cases in S’pore Today (2 Apr); 8 Are Imported
Today, 49 new COVID-19 cases were reported.
Only 8 cases are imported; they had travel history to Europe, North America, ASEAN and other parts of Asia.
The other 41 cases are locally transmitted, and 15 of them are currently unlinked.
26 of them are linked to previously confirmed cases or clusters, with 1 more linked to the cluster at Lee Ah Mooi Old Age Home.
And today, three new clusters were found.
Three New Clusters
The first cluster is Mustafa Centre, whereby 5 new cases today are linked to 6 previously confirmed cases, which means the cluster now has 11 cases. Details of the cluster is still unknown.
The second is a construction site at Maxwell MRT Station, in which 2 new cases today are linked to 3 previously confirmed cases, so the cluster has 5 linked cases.
The last one is at Keppel Shipyard, who doesn’t have any new case today but is founded based on previously confirmed cases.
Patients from Public Healthcare Sector
MOH also provided details about two patients who are linked to the public healthcare sector.
The first is a 26-year-old Bangladeshi national who was announced yesterday. He is a contractor working on the installation of toilet facilities at Sengkang General Hospital, and is now isolated there.
The second is a 26-year-old Singaporean who’s announced today. She is a healthcare attendant at the Institute of Mental Health (IMH) and is now isolated in National Centre for Infectious Diseases (NCID).
