Singapore confirms 3 new cases, raising total infected with Covid-19 to 75

Singapore has registered another 3 cases of Covid-19 infections, bringing the total tally of infected to 75, remaining as the most infected country outside of China.

The Ministry of Health (MOH) revealed on Sunday (16 Feb) that all the new cases are linked to previous cases, 2 of which to the cluster at Grace Assembly of God church, which now has 18 cases.

Case 73 is a male Singaporean, 43, with no recent travel history to mainland China. He reported the onset of symptoms on February 9 and visited a clinic the next day. He was identified as a close contact of another case at Grace Assembly of God and served a home quarantine order. He is currently in an isolation room at the National Centre for Infectious Diseases (NICD).

Case 74 is also linked to the Grace Assembly of God cluster. The 29-year-old male experienced symptoms on February 12 and was admitted to Alexandra Hospital on February 15, where he is currently in an isolation room.

Case 75 is a 71-year-old Singapore woman with no recent travel history to China. She is a family member of a previous case and had been under quarantine since February 7. She is in an isolation room at NICD.

Of the 56 confirmed cases still undergoing treatment in hospital, most are stable or improving, with 5 patients in critical condition in the intensive care unit.

Meanwhile onboard Diamond Princess, the cruise ship quarantined off the coast of Yokohama in Japan, another 70 people have tested positive for the Covid-19, bringing the total number of cases on board to 355 and prompting United States, Canadian and Hong Kong authorities to make emergency evacuations plans.

Separately, a United States citizen who arrived in Malaysia after disembarking in Cambodia from the MS Westerdam cruise ship tested positive on Saturday (15 Feb), fanning fresh concerns of more cases. Malaysia currently has 22 confirmed cases.

    Maybe places with non-aircon, hot & fans (non-mist) are safer.

    Avoid cooling tower mists (a silent killer) for your safety. Too much of this mist, either die of Covid-19 or Parkinsons Desease.

    Maybe our millionaire scholars never know this.

  • pap says wear mask after kenna:

    anyone with a brain knows the Wuhan virus infects anyone who does not protest themselves, such as wearing of mask when outside house mingling with crowds.

    worse is the symptoms take 24 days to show. the pap wayang about taking temperature is for show since an infected person is infectious even though showing no symptoms even on the 23rd day.

    not wearing a mask when outside house is as good as telling Wuhan virus please infect. pap, the proper thing to do as a government, is to teach 70% sheep how to wear mask and when to take off mask.

    30% OPPO folks here in TRE all wise since as it is around the world, the OPPOs mostly are more well off, most with hard assets such as landed properties and foreign currency deposits aka no need to work for a few generations or at least have a car in pap car lite BS Singapore, know how to wear mask, when must wear mask and so are safe.

    but the 70% sheep, like all sheep around the world, mostly jobless sheep with nus ntu smu degrees driving Grab delivering Grab food and believing pap about no need to wear mask unless kenna.

    these sheep live closely to each other in densely packed HDB over priced rental units, all taking lifts up and down daily and going to ntuc to buy bread, once one in HDB block kenna the whole GRC kenna.

    pap telling sheep no need to wear mask unless kenna is sama sama as telling sheep go geyland no need wear condom unless kenna.

    30% OPPO tell sheep this, after kenna wear for ffff? it is before kenna then wear. after kenna, it already means spouse already kenna and girlfriends already kenna since symptoms take up to 24 days to show and from day 1 to day 23 almost for sure already spread to spouse and girlfriends.

    be wise.

    pap says wear only after kenna because like INDIAN is malay lie, pap is lying about mask stockpile sufficient when it is not. try buying mask in Singapore. where got stock?

  • Only one profiteer:

    Really must salute the blatant profiteering done openly in Singapore by a private company.

    Klenco raise the price of its sanitizer from the normal price of $18 to a new high price of $30, and the goody goody reason is to discourage profiteers from buying it’s product.

    We are the only profiteer. Other profiteers have no chance here.

    If only those profiteers in China can give the same reasons, and if only the China police are “friendly” enough to accept such creative reasons.

    But this company surely learns from the PAP gov.
    “We raise GST to help the poor.”
    “We profiteer to deter profiteers!”

    News say they sold 12,000 sanitizers, which means a cool non-profiteering profiteering amount of $144,000.

  • Na Uni Kadelegei:

    Still there are people harping on surgical face masks. It is as if everyone is masked, Covid 19 will be Pofmaed.

    Face masks offer protection against infection by contagious microbes, provided it is not being abused and inappropriately used. Following guidelines given, at this stage, would still be good for the overwhelming majority.

    The following example might illustrate the point and here you go:-

    “ Pabug and Papadosay are both delivery men of a big pharmaceutical industry and they have to deliver huge amount of pharmaceutical products to various spots where risks of getting the bug are considerably much higher.

    Pabug take precautions by putting on face mask, not one but multiple layers as he is a little kiasu. On top of that, he also put on goggles , rubber gloves as he is aware that the bug could be transmitted via fomites also. Further, to avoid going to public toilets which he considered as unhygienic, he also put on diaper.

    Papadosay is happy go lucky, he follows the advice officially given , does not wear any protective devices. He just take the necessary precautions, washing of hands with soap, avoiding confined and crowded places etc.

    On their delivery rounds, Pabug just barge right in to the spots with higher risks. Mostly, he makes his rounds fast but on occasions, he would remain in the spot where risks are higher for longer than necessary , probably because something in there attracted his attention and his male hormonal behaviour get the better of him. When he completed his work, he first removed his rubber gloves, and then used his hands to remove his face masks, goggles. In the process, he nonchalantly dig his nose, rub his eyes..

    Papadosay’s approach is different. When he arrived at the vicinities of the hot spot, he calls the workers in there to come out to collect the delivery. And washing his hands and face with soap thoroughly along the way.

    When the crisis is over, Papadosay still a happy go lucky delivery man for the same company, and ever so often, he will go to restaurant “Sudabaya ” to enjoy his favourite “Nasi ikan Batu”.

    As for Pabug? He has become an angel in the heaven.

    Some questions about the clusters

    Hyatt hotel – an infected wuhan resident present in the business meeting was said to be the original spreader of this cluster. Other than this info, have not seen further media reports about him. Like did he leave SG after the meeting otherwise has he been isolated n under treatment in our hospital since ?

    Chinese medical shop cluster – it was reported some sales staff kenna after a group of china tourists visited the shop. Obviously one or some or all the tourists in the group were walking carriers of the virus. Any info on whether these tourists left SG or they were found n quarantined or the infected ones hospitalised since ?

    Seletar construction site = kenna indian work permit holders obviously could not be the original spreader. Didnt see any report from the authorities that says they know who is the original spreader of this cluster .

    The 2 churches clusters – as none of the 25 or so cases confirmed were said to have links to China or previous infected cases , they could not possibly be the original spreader . Also didnt authorities saying they know who is the spreader of these 2 clusters
    This is the worrisome part of the clusters cases not know who spreader is.

    Moral of the cluster stories n lessons . Healthy persons also must wear masks lah. Spreaders can be anywhere in the community and you wont know when and where you could bum into
    them. Why take chances n think you wont kenna

  • Orange Alert:

    What did they do at the GAG that so many got infected by the Covid-19 virus? Were they gathered in a small enclosed area? Did someone cough into the air, and others around caught the bug? Or was it through respiration and close communications? Even during singing, air passes throught the vocal chord and air is exchanged. All these suggest that it is air-borne, although there could be more than one mode of transfer.

    Either Singapore is really unlucky or PAP really are extremely shit. We have new infections daily, how come our 2 nearest neighbours don’t report new cases daily one ah?

    All these new infected daily cases just goes to show how chin chye PAP lets PRCs in to Singapore to work. And it also shows just how shit PAP are in preventing people from getting infected. It cannot be that our infections are all over the place from Hyatt to the church tio bo?

    Once again, Gan Kim Yong shows just how inept he is in dealing with this situation. Should change his name to Kan Kim Yong.

    The majority are too frightened to think, only hoping they won’t kena until this episode is over. They won’t be wondering why the hell our infections are so many compared to our neighbours.

  • REGIME CHANGE is the solution:

    Coronavirus: 81% afraid of infection, but 35% would still attend events even with mild symptoms: ST poll

    This is scary. Those with mild symptoms might NOT wear a mask. Why? Because MOH advises wearing a mask only if sick but by doing so they will identify themselves as sick and likely be thrown out of the event. But not wearing a mask they will likely infect those who are not sick (therefore not wearing a mask as per MOH advice).

    MOH advice is really stupid – a really compelling reason for REGIME CHANGE.

    THIS WILL NOT WORK. It is stupid to expect all of the 30,000 PRC Chinese working in Singapore who have not returned will stay at home for 14 days. Another stupid mistake.

    THE PRC Chinese working here should not be allowed to return at all. This will benefit Singaporeans. The shortage of workers will drive up local wages (which is good) and provide more job opportunities to unemployed and underemployed Singaporeans.

    This shows again the continuing fixation with GDP growth (started by LKY) over the safety and health of Singaporeans – A REALLY COMPELLING REASON FOR REGIME CHANGE.

    When you have free parking, non-shoppers will take advantage and park their cars there while they are at work. At least they should allow shoppers to redeem their parking tickets at stores for purchases above a certain $amount. This is not a good time to be in the crowd even if people do take advantage of the free-parking.
