Update on possible scams during this crisis:

[Sent by Gov.sg – 9 Feb]

Beware of scam callers asking for financial details, and claiming to be from the Ministry of Health conducting contact tracing.

How do you know if MOH is really calling you?
MOH will not ask for your financial details when conducting contact tracing.

📞 If you wish to verify the authenticity of a call about contact tracing, use the MOH General hotline at 6325 9220, or

🖥 Refer to official sources for information, such as www.moh.gov.sg (MOH website) and go.gov.sg/2019ncov (Gov.sg website)

SMH… I hope these scammers receive cruel retribution for such a cruel action during this crisis.

Update on measures to protect the vulnerable groups:

[Sent by Gov.sg – 9 Feb]

Further safeguards for vulnerable groups

🏫 Preschools & facilities providing care and social services will:
– Restrict casual visitors
– Limit movement of staff across different facilities

In addition, facilities providing care and social services will:

– Increase temperature screening to twice daily

If you wish to use MSF frontline services (e.g. submitting Baby Bonus forms) use online services, or email/post instead, to avoid crowds 💻📧

Enhanced transport measures

How are public transport facilities being kept clean? 🚌🚆

✔ Staff have started taking temperature regularly and practise good personal hygiene

Is it safe to take public transport?
Yes. The risk of nCoV infection from transient contact, such as on public transport or public places, is low.

Is it safe to take taxis or private-hire cars?
Yes, they have been:
✔ Ramping up cleaning efforts
✔ Winding down windows for ventilation after trips

How can I play a part?
🧼Wash hands often with soap
🙆‍♂Avoid touching face
