SINGAPORE – Jurong West Central, Aljunied, Bedok North, Tampines East, Sengkang Town Center and Woodlands East are some of the areas that have been highlighted as places frequently visited by Covid-19 patients over the past three days.
The public can now access this information on a map, first published on Friday (October 1).
Available on the Ministry of Health’s Covid-19 Situation Report Portal, the map divides the entire land area of Singapore, including the southern islands, into sub-regions.
A check by The Straits Times showed that as of Thursday, 12 subregions had been visited repeatedly from 230 to 560 Covid-19 cases over the past three days.
They are: Yunnan, Jurong West Central, Qian Tek, and Jurong River Region in the West; Junaid, East Geylang, North Bedok, and East Tampines in the east; Singkang city center in the northeast; The North Coast, the East Woodlands, and South Sinoco in the North.
There are five teams in total, with areas grouped and shaded according to the number of Covid-19 cases visited. The highest is between 230 and 560 cases.
The multi-ministerial task force to combat Covid-19 said last Friday that it hopes the map will help guide people in their movements and activities.
“Individuals who have visited these hotspots during the same time frame are encouraged to monitor their health, to take regular self-swabs for rapid antigen testing over the 10 days following their potential exposure, and to minimize any unnecessary interaction with others,” the task force said. Then.
She added that SafeEntry and TraceTogether data will continue to be used to inform individuals of recent confirmed close contacts with infected people or recent exposure to an increased prevalence area.
