S’pore General Hospital Turns Carpark H Into Fever Screening Zone After Drastic Spike In Covid-19 Cases

Singapore General Hospital Converts Carpark Into Screening Area As Covid-19 Cases Increase

On 19 Mar, Singapore reports another 32 Covid-19 cases, the second-highest spike within a day.

Hospitals are now keeping their patients and visitors in check daily and the workload can get pretty heavy.

To facilitate this process, Singapore General Hospital (SGH) transformed their carpark into a fever screening zone.


SGH’s Carpark H becomes a fever screening zone

According to The Straits Times (ST), the management informed SGH staff of this arrangement in an internal note on 19 Mar.


Prior to that, the hospital already announced the closure of Carpark H in a statement addressed to the public.


This arrangement is made to cope with the increasing number of Covid-19 cases, as reported by ST.


As stated by Professor Kwek and Associate Professor Ruban, SGH is prepared for the spike in cases and had devised a plan of action to meet the “increased need for care”.

Fever screening zone run by healthcare staff

A total of 6 SGH medical divisions, alongside nursing and allied health sectors, are activated to run the booths, stated ST.


SGH healthcare professionals are also throwing their weight behind those working in Infectious Diseases and Emergency Medicine departments.

This is by offering their skills and experience in combatting Covid-19, helping to lighten their workload.

In the same internal note, the professors expressed their sincere gratitude to SGH staff for their support, allowing them to “ensure that we have the capacity to meet the demand”.

Singapore is ready for Covid-19

This reassures Singaporeans that our strengthened healthcare system can handle the incoming volume of Covid-19 cases.


Our level of preparedness is only possible with the dedication and hard work of our healthcare staff.

Despite the spike in the number of cases, we can trust that these unsung heroes will do a good job in handling the Covid-19 situation.
