Singapore government has lost control of the virus outbreak with the country seeing a 100% jump in 10 days. There are now 226 as of yesterday (Mar 15), compared to 112 cases ten days ago on Mar 5.
Of the 14 cases who are a mix of foreigners and citizens, at least 7 are locally infected and showed symptoms in Singapore (case 214, case 215, case 216, case 218, case 219, case 221 and case 224). The place of infection for the remaining seven is unknown.
13 cases are in critical conditions on oxygen support.
The huge spike saw the government issuing travel advisories telling residents to put off non-essential travel. All arrivals from ASEAN countries, Japan, Switzerland and UK will have to serve 14 days stay-home notice upon landing.
Arrivals from Malaysia who came via road or sea will be exempted, as the Singapore economy is heavily dependent on residents living in Johor.
