As Infections Rise Again, MOH Tells Us We Are Going Out Too Much

Yesterday, Singapore recorded 3994 Covid-19 cases and 7 more deaths. That is almost 4000 new infections in a day.

It was only two days ago when Health Minister Ong Ye Kung said we are moving closer to the light at the end of the tunnel.

It was also only two days ago when Ho Ching congratulated us for slowing down the growth of infections: “Well done, folks! We are getting there – we are beginning to change the trajectory of the increases in new cases”.

Yesterday, they kept quiet after the spike to 3994 cases.

MOH is now telling us that we are going out too much and should limit our social interactions. “Over the past week, we have observed a rise in activity levels, including at malls and in the Orchard Road area”.

“We strongly encourage everyone, especially seniors and those with comorbidities, to limit your social activities and to go out only for essential activities”.

MOH said it will continue to “monitor” if it is a temporary spike or a further surge in cases. What now, is it our fault again?
