Singapore is very, very different today.

Malls now have checkpoints, we now can’t smell the shampoo of the person queuing in front of you and from now on, if we receive a 5-day MC for respiratory illnesses, we can’t even leave our house.

And also, the number of locally transmitted cases is now higher than imported cases, which means shit has hit the fan.

Here’s today’s announcement.

49 New COVID-19 Cases in S’pore Today (27 Mar); More Local Cases Than Imported Cases Now

Out of the 49 new cases today, 22 are imported. Most of them have been to the UK, the US and Europe, with some travel history still pending.

The other 27 cases are local cases:

  • 3 are linked to the Dover Court International School cluster, which now has 7 linked cases
  • 5 are linked to the PCF Fengshan cluster, which now has 25 linked cases
  • 2 are linked to a new cluster, one at SingPost Centre, and it’s linked to a previously confirmed case so the total linked cases here is 3
  • 8 are linked to previously confirmed cases
  • 9 have no links yet

Details of the new link at SingPost Centre aren’t revealed yet.

In total, there are now 732 cases in Singapore.

183 of the patients have fully recovered and are discharged, while 17 are in ICU. 2 have passed away.

The conditions of the remaining patients are either stable or improving, and 115 of them who are clinically well but still test positive for COVID-19 are isolated and cared for at Concord International Hospital, Mount Elizabeth Hospital and the Community Isolation Facility at D’Resort NTUC.
