Chinatown Point, NUS canteen visited by Covid-19 cases while infectious

SINGAPORE — The Ministry of Health (MOH) on Friday (April 16) added two more locations — including a canteen at the National University of Singapore (NUS) — to a list of public places that had been visited by Covid-19 cases during their infectious period. In its evening update on the coronavirus situation in Singapore, MOH said that the infectious persons had visited: Chinatown Point at 133 New Bridge Road on April 3 between 2.25pm and 4.15pm Techno Edge Canteen at NUS Information Technology located at 2 Engineering Drive 4 on April 12 between 12.30pm and 1pm MOH said that it would have already notified individuals who were identified as close contacts of the confirmed cases. As a precautionary measure, persons who had been at these locations during the specified timings should monitor their health closely for 14 days from their date of visit, it added. They should see a doctor promptly if they develop symptoms of acute respiratory infection (such as cough, sore throat and runny nose), as well as fever and loss of taste or smell, and inform the doctor of their exposure history. MOH added that individuals may also access the SafeEntry Location Matching Self-Check service via the TraceTogether mobile application, SingPass Mobile, or at https://wereyouthere.safeentry.gov.sg to check whether they were at these locations during the specified timings, based on their own SafeEntry records. Members of the public also do not need to avoid places where confirmed cases of Covid-19 have been, MOH said. The National Environment Agency will engage the management of the affected premises to provide guidance on cleaning and disinfection. On Friday, MOH reported 34 new cases of Covid-19 in Singapore, two of them in the community. The remaining 32 were imported infections.
