It’s Singapore’s turn to freak out as its number of Covid-19 cases reaches over 4,000.


According to an article by Strait Times, yesterday (16th April), Singapore recorded 728 cases in just one day. For the past two weeks including yesterday, foreign workers living in dormitories have been the main cause of the increase. Out of the 728 increase, 654 patients were foreign workers. The total number of people who are linked to the dormitories and have tested positive for Covid-19 is 2,689 (that is every 3 in 5 patients!).

The country received five new clusters linked to dormitories, including two large purpose-built dormitories, Westlite Mandai and The Leo dormitory in Kaki Bukit. The other three new clusters are linked to factory converted dormitories: SJ Dormitory (Woodlands), 17 Sungei Kadut Street 4 and Grandwork Building (Sungei Kadut).
