5 day MC for all with respiratory symptoms

  • Many local confirmed cases had continued to “circulate in the community” or gone to work when they were ill. This contributed to a wider community spread
  • NCID has also observed that a “significant number” of Singapore’s COVID-19 cases has mild symptoms in the initial phase of infection
  • COVID-19 can be infectious during this initial period of mild symptoms
  • Hence, MOH has advised clinics to give a 5 day MC for all with respiratory symptoms so as to minimise their contact with the public
