SINGAPORE – There was a spike in the number of Covid-19 infections here in the week of Sept 17 to 23. The 14,843 people diagnosed with the disease are more than double those in the previous week, when 6,401 cases were recorded.

In the previous 10 weeks, between July 9 and Sept 16, the number of infections each week ranged from 3,485 to 7,045.

Singapore no longer requires reporting of Covid-19 cases, so these numbers generally reflect those who sought medical care.


The Ministry of Health (MOH) said it is monitoring the situation, but does not think there is a need to worry as the number of people infected “is currently low compared to previous waves”.

“The average daily new Covid-19 hospitalisations and average daily new ICU (intensive care unit) cases have also remained low,” it said about the current spike in cases on its Covid-19 website.

The peak number of infections this year was 28,410 a week at the end of March. That week, 159 people were hospitalised, a slight increase over the 139 in the previous week; and seven needed to be admitted to intensive care, up from six in the previous week.

However, hospitalisation and the need for intensive care usually lag infections. The infection peak at the end of March had led to a higher number of hospitalisations and admissions to the ICU in April.

April and May also recorded the highest number of Covid-19 deaths in 2023 – 54 and 53, respectively.

In August, 10 people, all at least 60 years old, died of Covid-19 here. This is MOH’s latest Covid-19 deaths figure on its website.

The MOH statement added: “The increase could be due to a number of factors, including waning population immunity, rise of other emerging variants and increased travel and community interactions, resulting in virus transmission.”

The most common variant here currently is the HK.3, which accounts for almost half the infections. This is a sub-variant of EG.5.1, which has been dominant since July. All variants of the Covid-19 virus circulating today are Omicron sub-variants.

Dr Asok Kurup, an infectious diseases expert in private practice, said the increase could be due to more people travelling during the recent school holidays (Sept 2 to 10) and bringing infections back with them.

Singapore also hosted the three-day F1 Singapore Grand Prix races from Sept 15 to 17, which drew a packed crowd of more than 260,000 spectators.

Dr Kurup said these might have led to an undetected surge in cases initially, “but cross transmission to those who are more vulnerable and who tend to seek medical care could perhaps account for the current trend”.

The median time is around five days for a person to show symptoms after exposure to the virus.

MOH urged people to “maintain personal hygiene and keep up to date with their Covid-19 vaccinations, including a booster dose around one year after their last booster dose for those aged 60 years and above, medically vulnerable persons, and residents of aged care facilities”.

Nine in 10 people here have had at least one dose of Covid-19 vaccine, while 81 per cent has achieved what the MOH defines as the minimum protection: three doses of mRNA or Novavax, or four doses of Sinovac vaccines.

Towards the end of October, Singapore expects to receive the new monovalent vaccine targeted at the Omicron sub-variants. The booster shot remains free for residents.

On Sept 15, Health Minister Ong Ye Kung cautioned in a Facebook post that “the virus has not gotten milder, it is we who have gotten stronger, through vaccinations and safe recovery from infections”. But this protection is being eroded by falling vaccine take-up rates.

He urged people here, especially seniors, to get the vaccine once a year.

Here comes the fearmongering again. Right on schedule. :roflmao:

If you are no longer a pureblood, it doesn't matter whether you get another booster, or wear a mask. You are fucked, and please enjoy your VAIDS.

Are you a proper medical scholar? Can your advice be taken seriously?

it's better to catch new variant covid than to take injection.
at most out of action for a few days rather than a lifetime of uncertainty as to when the vaccine adverse effect may hit u. 短痛 is better and safer than 长痛.

dear towkay,
it has been a pleasure knowing you here.

I feel that you are a selfless person. You should strongly encourage your people in RC and PA to take more booster jabs ASAP (5th by now). Your family and you are such noble people, I believe you will not hesitate to let your kakis in RC and PA to go ahead first. Please bug them take the vaccination as often as possible in your group chats.

Thank you for doing your part towards nation building.

1. In the near future when TRUE Quantum Artificial Intelligence is fully developed, & only one in the World that exist by IBM & NOT the hype or scams by others playing upon the concepts of AI, EACH Human will be strapped with such device to the body that would provide ALL BIOLOGICAL information one needs to make an informed health decision, as it will not just monitor exterior heath conditions but even at the MOLECULAR level - blood, sugar(proteins) levels, helpful & unhelpful bacteria organisms, blood pressure, etc, etc.

2. The vaccine against COV id19 was developed in a rush & NECESSARILY as all Humankind were in UNNECESSARY PANIC & used as even for political motivations back then. Using technology, it was push thru & found that it would ENHANCE the Human natural Immune System to fight off the common flu which COV & its numerous variants throughout MILLIONS of years, as it is a biological RNA virus that existed even before Humankind existed.

Normally, it would take 5yrs to OBSERVE the efficasy of a vaccine thru numerous animal, environment & Human trials before approval, but there was no time in a Worldwide panic back then. But now, we do have time to study its effects, & at least the current mRNA vaccines does NOT alter the Human DNA, but only to ENHANCE our immune system safely thru TECHNOLOGICAL 4th Dimension use of TIME, to see results played out on computer software programs.

3. However, the vaccine is NOT for everyone. For those whom are in the at risk group - the aged with natural decaying body cells, those whom already have existing health conditions as well as those born with body immune defects, the vaccine which is NOT even a cure against COV, would have limited ability to protect the Human against COV, but it still does work for those whom are not too far gone in health conditions.

4. Equally, for those whom are young & healthy, it is a fallacy that COV will not attack such Human bodies as even such healthy Humans may at times did not MAINTAIN their own body immune system such as bad diets, extreme under or over exercise of body or plain lack of sleep to allow the immune system to do its work to rid the body of foreign organisms of not just COV alone.

5. The best course of action would be to consult your family doctor, whom has the BEST medical information of you as each time you visit him/her, even for an MC, your health conditions would be RECORDED & AVALIABLE at a click of a button & provide advice on how your body can or cannot accept the vaccine, or would be of no help OR of help to you.

For those whom do not have a private family doctor, they are not left behind in Singapore as even Polyclinics KEEPS record of each individual's health conditions, even on MCs, & at the click of button, the new doctor would know the health history of an individual, eg - if he/she has high blood pressure, low sugar levels, constipations, migraines, etc.

Family or Public doctor, he can only advice as EACH Human has FREE WILL. He/She is only a mortal & responsible for your health by giving you the best advice. The needle to be injected is your choice, made on informed choice studied from all angles & not by PEER PRESSURE from dubious others, to save oneself from the severe attacks that COV had proven to inflict upon the unsuspecting & the ignorant unnecessarily when PRECAUTIONS went unheeded.

May ALL be clear minded - the enemy is COV, and NOT the vaccine. It is either we Humankind eliminate COV which is impossible as we mortals have no power against Nature, or we ADAPT & live with COV, intelligently & protected.
