SINGAPORE: The Ministry of Health (MOH) reported a rise in COVID-19 hospitalizations and intensive care unit (ICU) cases, linking this increase to the growing number of infections.
Between 26 Nov 26 and 2 Dec, the estimated count of COVID-19 cases surged to 32,035 from the previous week’s 22,094.
Concurrently, average daily hospitalizations climbed to 225, up from 136, while daily ICU cases rose to four from one in the prior week.
In a statement issued on Friday (8 Dec), MOH clarified that these figures, though elevated, do not match the peak levels experienced during the pandemic.
There is also no indication that the variants circulating locally are more transmissible or cause more severe disease, added MOH.
Nevertheless, the surge has intensified the workload for hospitals already operating at high capacity. MOH said they are closely monitoring the trajectory of this wave to ensure that our healthcare capacity can cope.
“We also urge the public to seek medical treatment at a hospital’s Emergency Department only for serious or life-threatening emergencies, ” said MOH.
“This will preserve our hospital capacity for patients who truly need acute hospital care and allow those with severe illness to receive timely treatment.”

In the statement, MOH mentioned that the increase in cases could be attributed to several factors, including waning population immunity and increased travel and community interactions during the year-end travel and festive season.
Notably, over 60% of Singapore’s COVID-19 cases were linked to JN.1, a sublineage of BA.2.86.
Although both BA.2.86 and its sublineages were categorized as variants of interest by the World Health Organization since 21 Nov, there is currently no evidence indicating increased transmissibility or severity compared to other circulating variants, either locally or globally.
MOH urge the public to exercise precaution, personal and social responsibility.
The recommended precautionary measures include practising frequent hand washing, staying home when unwell, minimizing contact with vulnerable individuals, wearing masks in crowded or poorly ventilated places, and maintaining vigilance and relevant precautions while travelling overseas.
MOH advise Singaporeans to stay current with their COVID-19 vaccinations, recommending an additional dose approximately one year after the last vaccine dose for individuals aged 60 and above, those medically vulnerable, and residents in aged care facilities.
“Beyond this group, all individuals aged six months and above are also encouraged to receive the additional dose, particularly for healthcare workers and household members/ caregivers of medically vulnerable individuals.”
The updated Pfizer-BioNTech/Comirnaty and Moderna/Spikevax vaccines have been available for free at designated vaccination centers, clinics, and polyclinics since November 2023, added MOH.

Beyond Singapore, neighbouring countries such as Malaysia and Indonesia have also experienced a significant rise in COVID-19 cases, attributing this surge to the emergence of new variants of the virus.

I am witnessing the timeline spilt. In my reality, there is no covid, no mask wearing, no vaccine, no health issues. Just like what i use to do, eating healthy plant based organic, exercise, planning for travel trips, eating good food, tea and nice music and enjoy simple things in life. Health problems isn't part of my reality now, i got more happy things to focus on.

Very weird. After entire population vaccinated still no use despite so called tech vaccine.
It really raises a lot of questions and controversy. It all boils down to mutations in the virus or lack of precautions. and I think there will be a new vaccine soon).


MOH is closely monitoring the healthcare capacity is able to cope
Is there any fucking point to this wayang? You create the problem, then you monger fear by telling everyone the infrastructure can’t cope so the only way out is to once again jab your fucking brains out
