Gan Kim Yong; Parliament

Singapore is again manipulating COVID-19 reporting figures again, this time by excluding a man who died from the coronavirus because he was tested positive only 2 days after his death.

The virus carrier died at his home from the coronavirus on 8 June 2020, but Health Minister Gan Kim Yong said his death is not counted. The PAP minister said he does not recognise heart diseases as an effect from the virus:

“Other countries have reported seeing an increased risk of blood clots and heart disease in COVID-19 patients. I cannot definitively conclude if this was the case in Singapore, given that only one out of 1,000 COVID-19 patients here experience cardiovascular events, such as heart attacks and blood clots.”

The 44 year old deceased reported chest and stomach pains to a Genera Practitioner (GP) clinic on May 28. The Singapore GP refused to give him a testing despite him showing symptoms of the coronavirus.

The Indian national then died from blood clots, caused by the coronavirus. The Singapore government however put his cause of death as heart diseases, and refused to relate it to the coronavirus.

There had been 7 other deaths of positive cases with heart diseases, which the Singapore government refused to record as COVID-related. Officially there is 25 deaths and 39,387 confirmed cases.
