本地最大的感染群S11榜鹅客工宿舍再增10起病例,使该感染群总病例达98起。该宿舍已被列为隔离区,不准离开宿舍的客工正排队领取食物。

昨天没有出现新感染群,这是我国连续九天出现新感染群以来,再次没有出现新感染群。在新病例当中,41起暂与其他病例无关、52起与现有感染群相关、10起与早前确诊病例有关,只有三起是境外输入病例。
本地单日的冠病新病例再次破百,昨天(4月7日)新增106起,与客工宿舍感染群相关的新病例再增39起,使我国总病例达1481起。

尽管新病例不少,本地昨天却没有出现新感染群,我国之前已连续九天出现新感染群。然而,暂与其他病例无关联的病例数目继续增加,已达200多起。
在昨天的新病例当中,就有41起暂与其他病例无关、52起与现有感染群相关、10起与早前确诊病例有关,只有三起是境外输入病例。在41起暂还没找到关联的病例当中,有不少是持有本地长期证件的印度或孟加拉籍公民,相信是客工。
本地目前最大的感染群S11榜鹅客工宿舍再增加多10起病例,使该感染群总病例达98起。卓源东路Westlite宿舍感染群增加五起至34起,卓源东路的回利阁客工宿舍则增加四起至18起。这三家宿舍已被政府列为隔离区。
双溪登加客工宿舍昨天则激增12起病例,该感染群目前有18起病例。淡滨尼客工宿舍、高琳一号客工宿舍和高琳二号客工宿舍则分别添加八起、五起和一起病例。马吉街建筑工地则增加三起至21起。

令人关注的李亚妹安老院感染群相隔几天后再次出现新病例,这三起病例都是年长者,包括一名97岁本地老妇和两名88岁本地老妇。慕斯达法购物中心感染群也有多七起新病例,该感染群已有45起病例。

已有377人康复出院

新病例当中也有一名七岁男孩,以及一名18岁男生,后者暂与其他病例无关。
另外,卫生部昨晚的文告也透露了三名确诊公共医疗业人员的细节,他们近期都没到任何受疫情影响的国家和地区。前天宣布的一名22岁本地女病例是新加坡中央医院护士,她在本月4日出现症状后就没有去上班。
另一名确诊的35岁本地女子是黄廷方综合医院的护士,她在本月5日出现症状后,工作了几个小时,隔天确诊。还有一名在后港综合诊疗所当医疗助理的61岁本地女子,但她在本月1日出现症状后就没去上班,6日确诊。
卫生部答复《联合早报》询问时透露,截至4月5日早上10时,已有26名在公共医疗业工作的人确诊,但目前调查显示这些病例染病与他们所接触的病患暂时都没有直接关联。
截至昨天中午,已有377人康复出院,包括昨天出院的33人,昨天出院人数创单日新高。在加护病房的病患从25人增至29人。
已有471名病情稳定的病患转至白沙职总D’Resort度假村的社区隔离设施、泰和国际医院、伊丽莎白医院、鹰阁医院和安微尼亚山医院。这是卫生部首次把安微尼亚山医院也列入照顾病情稳定冠病病患的私人医院当中。

The announcement on Wednesday (March 25) evening follows news that the Malaysia lockdown will be extended from March 31 to April 14.

“MOM will… work with employers to facilitate the transfer of their affected workers into more sustainable housing options in Singapore,” it stated.

“For their own long-term sustainability and business continuity reasons, employers will need to decide on how best to house their affected workers in Singapore, and the sharing of additional costs with their workers.”

More sustainable accommodation options vary depending on the company. They could refer to hotels for some firms while for others, they might mean public or private rental options.

When the Malaysian lockdown began on March 18, the MOM said that it would provide temporary support to help employers defray the costs of housing affected workers.

Employers who need more sustainable housing options can refer to the MOM website or contact it via e-mail.

Meanwhile, the MOM announced earlier on Wednesday that work-pass holders planning to enter Singapore from Malaysia must first obtain approval before they begin their journeys.

The requirement applies to work pass holders now outside of Singapore and workers whose work permits have been approved but have not yet entered the country.
