Resident of Lee Ah Moi Old Age Home succumb to Covid-19

A resident of Lee Ah Moi Old Age Home (LAM) has succumb to the Covid-19 on Friday (3 Apr @ 01:55 am), registering her as the 5th to have died from the disease in Singapore.

The 86-year-old woman was case 918, who was confirmed infected on 31st March, the first to be tested positive for the Covid-19 in the cluster at LAM. As of 2nd April @ 12 pm, there are a total of 12 confirmed cases at LAM, 8 of which are very vulnerable residents aged 70 and above.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Health (MOH) has announced an additional 65 new cases of infection in Singapore, of which 9 are imported and 56 are local cases who have no recent travel history abroad.

As of 3rd April @ 12 pm, the new cases are:

  • 9 imported cases had travel history to multiple countries.
  • 40 cases linked to previous cases or clusters.
  • 16 cases currently unlinked, and contact tracing is ongoing.

Friday’s figure is the highest hike of local transmission since the beginning of the pandemic, bringing the total tally in the island city to 1114. Of those who are still undergoing treatment in hospitals, intensive care units have 25 who are in critical conditions.

With the unexpected rapid rise in local infections, authorities in the island city meanwhile have announced additional half-baked measures which would slow the rate of community-spread but not effectively contain it.

Many Netizens believe that these half-baked measures, which are just one-stop short of a complete lockdown seen in China, are to ensure that a snap General Election could be called within weeks.

These beliefs are not unfounded, considering that the Elections Department (under the Prime Minister Office) has announced it would be tabling a bill in Parliament next week that would set out contingency plans to ensure a safe election during the Covid-19 outbreak.

  • PAPVID-20:

    I bet they’ll call for an election earliest next week or the week after next …… before more old folks from LAM will be tested positive and before we see more death from the Home.

    Could you update LAMOAH’s pic? It has relocated to former Orange Nursing Home @ Kampong Bahru & Silat Junction. I think GE could be this April since all the schools will be vacant & available.

    WHAT ABOUT THE ELDERLY/OLDER LIVING ALONE WITHOUT KIDS OR YOUNG PEOPLE HELPING THEM?

    I SUGGEST THE GAHMEN DEPLOY THE SAF SERVICES BY GETTING SOLDIERS TO DISTRIBUTE FOOD PACKAGES/SUPPLIES TO THESE ELDERLY AND SICK.

    THAT WAY,THEY NEED NOT GE JOSTLING AROUND AND GET EXPOSED TO GERMS.

    OUR ARMY IS SO FARKING FREE AND THE COMMANDERS ARE EXTRA FREE THAT THEY PLAY PRANK ON THEIR RECRUITS??? AND NOT A FEW DIED OREDY?

    WHY NOT GET THEM TO MOVE THEIR LAZY BUTTS AND DO SOMEHTING FOR THE ELDERLY AND AGED SICK SGS?

  • Harder Truths:

    Anyone really expect this heartless government to do anything for the people – (or cattle) since they have decided to make sure the disease can run its course and what happens must happen (to others).

    As the old dead despot used to do – kill off the weak and replace with the strong. If you cannot survive the CoV then you are better being replaced.

    Such is the real $G ‘inclusiveness’ and ‘caring’ and ‘sharing’ nation.
