Stay safe everyone. 😔🙏 I think the Govt at this juncture will have to be very careful of how their actions will be perceive.

The ministry said that the cluster is primarily a workplace one, with “no evidence of spread beyond workplace and household contacts of cases”.-somehow I don’t understand this.The question is how the workplace became infected.Obviously people brought it in so isn’t this a spread
