govsingapore MothershipSG schools should be closed!!! How are they still open? Most internationalschools are on springholiday but they need to be closed! Many thanks to the people that have made all this tracing possible. It gives us some relief to know that a case has a link. All Sparkletots Centre closed for few days , at the meantime pray for those kids and their families

MOH is watching at the kids ..... if 18 cases in Sparkletots and non kids got it , a very strong medical data to prove something if there is one kid , just one infected or group of kids infected , Sparkletots will be close , we shall see in the next few days if kids infected there . What it need to take for Singapore government to close the school. Is it, more death need to happen before necessary measures are put in place? How can you say the children would be safe in school. Wake up....this is a pandemic. Not a flu bugs...

For all of us to understand. Oh no :/ Very strange why schools are not closed yet. More imported cases coming as we are bringing home our sisters and brothers home from overseas studies. StayUnited SGUnited StaySafe
