38 new Covid-19 cases in Singapore, including 4 in the community

SINGAPORE - There were 38 new coronavirus cases confirmed as at noon on Thursday (Jan 21), taking Singapore's total to 59,195.

They included 34 imported cases, of which 33 had been placed on stay-home notices on arrival in Singapore.

The remaining case tested negative for Covid-19 upon arrival in Singapore on Sunday (Jan 17), and was on a controlled itinerary during his stay here. He subsequently tested positive for Covid-19 infection on Wednesday.

There were four community cases and none from workers' dormitories.

More details will be announced on Thursday night.

On Wednesday, the number of new cases in the community increased to 18 in the past week, from four in the week before.

The ministry also reported a new local coronavirus cluster - the third discovered in recent weeks - after three of the four community cases were linked to a previous case.

The three cases were linked to the case of a 39-year-old permanent resident who works in sales at BS Industrial and Construction Supply in Kallang. He tested positive for the virus on Monday.

All of them are his co-workers, and MOH said that investigations are ongoing to assess if there was a breach of safe management measures in their workplace. "The Government takes a serious view of any breach and will take actions should there be non-compliance," it said in the statement.

Two of the three did not seek medical attention after developing symptoms.

The first linked case is a 27-year-old Malaysian work pass holder who works in sales at BS Industrial and Construction Supply.

He developed a sore throat on Jan 14 but did not seek medical treatment and continued to go to work. He was contacted by MOH on Monday after being identified as a close contact of the original case, and subsequently tested positive on Tuesday.

The second case is a 29-year-old Malaysian national who is also a work pass holder and works in sales at the same company.

She developed a sore throat and had difficulty breathing last Saturday but continued to go to work as well as interacted with members of the community, said MOH.

The woman also tested positive after being identified as a close contact of the original case.

The final linked case is a 28-year-old Malaysian who is also a work pass holder and works in finance in the same company. She developed a cough on Tuesday - the day she was placed in quarantine. She later tested positive for the infection.

The fourth community case was unlinked to this cluster - a 46-year-old Indian national who is a work pass holder working as a software engineer at Apar Technologies in Shenton Way.

He is asymptomatic and his infection was detected when he took a pre-departure test on Tuesday in preparation for a trip back to India.

There were also 36 imported cases reported yesterday, comprising one Singaporean, one permanent resident, one dependant's pass holder, one long-term visit pass holder, four student's pass holders, four work pass holders, 20 work permit holders and four short-term visit pass holders.

With 32 cases discharged on Wednesday, 58,911 patients have fully recovered from the disease.

A total of 45 patients remain in hospital, including one in the intensive care unit, while 197 are recuperating in community facilities.

Singapore has had 29 deaths from Covid-19 complications, while 15 who tested positive have died of other causes.

Globally, the virus outbreak, which began in December 2019, has infected more than 96.1 million people. More than two million people have died.

Govt won't ration vaccine supplies for those who adopt wait-&-see attitude: Lawrence Wong

The vaccines will be rolled out to those who want them as soon as possible.

Ashley Tan
In the coming year, the Singapore government's biggest priority with regards to the Covid-19 pandemic will be rolling out the vaccines to the masses as soon as possible.

Co-chairs of the Multi-Ministry Taskforce Lawrence Wong and Gan Kim Yong compared Covid-19 to a marathon.

Both Gan and Wong urged Singaporeans not to become complacent.

Both ministers also made clear their stance on those who prefer to wait for others to take the shot first — that the government will not be waiting for them.

Felt "perfectly fine" after vaccination

These statements were made during an interview Wong and Gan had with the media on Jan. 19.

In response to a media question about how 34 per cent of Singaporeans remained hesitant about taking the vaccine — based on a YouGov survey — Gan acknowledged these concerns about the new vaccines.

However, he said this could also be an opportunity for the government to ramp up their public education efforts on vaccinations, particularly for seniors in Singapore.

As seniors more often remain cooped up at home, Gan said that vaccinating those within this demographic would have to be done the hard way — by doing door to door, explaining and making the case for vaccinations.

Gan mentioned that Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, Wong and himself had already been vaccinated as a show of confidence to the Singapore population.

When asked how they felt after their own vaccinations, Wong immediately quipped "I feel perfectly fine!".

Both men then chuckled and commented that they both had sore arms for a day after.

Vaccines will be rolled out ASAP

However, a lot more still has to be done to convince those who have adopted a wait-and-see attitude, Gan said.

This attitude has perhaps been bolstered by the misconception that the vaccine is not necessary due to the relatively low number of community cases in Singapore.

"But you must remember that the rest of the world is still burning up. There are new cases everyday and new records being set," Gan said.

Wong and Gan made clear however, that the government will not hold back its vaccination efforts for those who hesitate.

Wong said:

"Our philosophy in rolling out the vaccinations is to push out whatever supplies of vaccines we have as soon as possible.

We are not holding back [our] supply to wait for people who are holding back [themselves]. We are not going to reserve some supply for you until you decide to take [the vaccination] up."

Wong added that those who choose to wait and make their decision to take the vaccine later on "must accept the consequences" that there might not be a ready supply of vaccines all the time, as vaccines would be given out to those who are willing immediately.

"We are not trying to hold back or ration the supply. It's not in Singapore's interest to do that," Wong said.

Measures might be eased if more people are vaccinated

In response to a question on whether stringent restrictions would be implemented on those who are unvaccinated, and if those who are unvaccinated by choice would be differentiated, Wong explained that the situation was not that simple.

It would be hard to differentiate between those who choose not to take the vaccine, and those who are unable to take the vaccine due to medical reasons, he said.

In any case, restrictions such as safe management measures would still be in place for some time after the vaccinations.

Wong did mention however, that there might be potential easing of certain measures for individuals who have been vaccinated.

Both Wong and Gan extolled on the potential benefits vaccines can hold for the future as well.

"At some point in time, we need to open up more and vaccinations will help us get there faster," Gan said.

Wong also acknowledged that while studies are ongoing to determine the extent to which the vaccine can reduce the transmission of the virus, positive results could equate to various advantages for those in Singapore.

"But if the data and evidence show that transmission is reduced, you can expect that for somebody who wants to travel [and who is vaccinated], then potentially the time for the Stay-Home Notice requirement can be reduced or even eliminated."

People who are subject to regular testing in their line of work may even see testing frequency or requirements reduced or eliminated, Wong added.

The government would even consider relaxing safe management measures should Singapore have "lots of people getting vaccinated".

"Additional motivation for all of us who want to step forward and get ourselves vaccinated," Wong said.
