Coffee shop owner, known only as Mr Chan, informed that the beverage stall assistant is a Singaporean employee and is currently in good condition.

After experiencing onset of symptoms on 18 Mar, the lady had gone to see a doctor the next day. She mostly stayed at home after that and had not gone to work since.

She was confirmed as a Covid-19 patient last Saturday (21 Mar).

However, Mr Chan said it still remains unclear as to where or how she got infected.

After the 55-year-old was confirmed, 5 other employees from the same stall were placed under a 14-day quarantine as well.

Mr. Chen has also decided to close the coffee shop for 14 days starting last Sunday (22 Mar) for disinfection purposes. The 10 other stalls in the shop will be deep cleaned too.
