Local COVID-19 news

The Ministry of Health (MOH) said on Tuesday (July 13) night that there is likely ongoing transmission at three KTV clubs and lounges.

They are Club Dolce (Balestier Point), WU Bistro (Golden Mile Complex) and Club De Zara (Textile Centre).

It is investigating cases of Covid-19 infection among Vietnamese social hostesses who had frequented KTV lounges or clubs currently operating as food and beverage outlets.

life goes on.

A total of 41 new COVID-19 cases in Singapore are linked to the KTV lounge cluster, a situation that Health Minister Ong Ye Kung said is “very troubling and disappointing”.

The 41 cases are among 56 new locally transmitted infections announced on Wednesday (Jul 14).

There are now 53 cases linked to the KTV lounge cluster, including a passenger of a Dream Cruises ship who tested positive on board.

Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Mr Ong said: “We knew about cases like that happening in Korea, in Hong Kong nightlife, people coming very close together, some with hostesses, and leading to big clusters. So we have never allowed such activities for the past more than one year.

“And so any outlets providing hostess services, dice games and all this very close contact, were never allowed, knowing and learning from the experiences of places like Hong Kong and Korea. So for this to now happen has been troubling (and) disappointing.”

The police will take action against lounges and hostesses who may have breached safe management measures, he added.

Opened too early

Need to know if they are vaccinated or not.

Why every time when PAP ministers relax the measures for 5 people to meet, COVID cases will surge?

This is the second time that this kind of thing has happened.

Is it because our ministers have no foresight or inexperienced or impatient or what ?

We r in Endemic so it’s d norm
