Geylang Serai, Bukit Panjang & Block 16 Bedok Markets Among 19 Locations Visited By Covid-19 Patients

Phase 2 had begun almost a month ago. As more people enjoy the freedom to go out and about once more, with it comes equal concern over an increased risk of infection.

Community cases are double-digits almost everyday, and the same goes to the number of places visited by Covid-19 patients.

Last night (11 Jul), the list had added 19 locations including densely populated places like Geylang Serai market, Bukit Panjang market, and Block 16 Bedok market.

In particular, IMM and West Mall were visited twice each on 28 Jun, and 3-5 Jul.

This list – updated on a rolling 14-day basis – excludes residence, workplaces, healthcare facilities, and public transport.

No need to avoid places visited by Covid-19 patients

MOH assured that they have already informed those who are identified as close contacts of confirmed cases.

For precaution, those who have visited the aforementioned locations during the specified timings must monitor their health closely for 14 days from their date of visit.

However, there is no need to avoid places where Covid-19 patients had visited, says MOH. The National Environment Agency (NEA) will provide guidance on cleaning and disinfection to management of the affected premises.
