Was his condition bad when taking the test? Why is he not admitted to hospital? Sad. local cases r mostly due to travelers returning not quarantined immediately. The rule on mandatory quarantine on all travelers came too late n failed to consider family member staying together early enough. Too confident of SARs experience that virus spread only with symptom
Singapore resident on EP or tourist held up here due to Corona travel restrictions 😬 higher, Higher, HIGHER! FAILED STATE! When this circuit breaker was announced the task force already said that we have to expect more cases in the coming days. The effect of this circuit breaker might only be felt from next week or next 2 weeks. Let's be responsible and stay home as much as possible.
