Update on number of cases (emphasis is mine):
[Sent by Gov.sg – 1 Feb]
Update on 2019 Novel Coronavirus
Confirmed cases: 18
Suspect cases tested negative: 231
Pending results: 25
As of 1 Feb, MOH confirmed 2 more cases of nCoV infection in S’pore. 16 confirmed cases were announced earlier.
The 17th case is a 47-year-old S’porean woman, evacuated from Wuhan on 30 Jan. The 18th case is a 31-year-old female Chinese national who arrived from Wuhan on 22 Jan. Both are in stable condition.
All the confirmed cases have recent travel history to Wuhan. Currently no evidence of community spread in S’pore.
All of the previous cases are in stable condition. Most are improving.
There is a message circulating with a list of alleged places to avoid where suspected/confirmed cases of the nCoV infection have been.
This is false. There is no need to avoid these places. The risk of infection from transient contact is low.
You may have noticed a system msg stating a code/name changed. This is due to a system update. No action is required
Stay calm and safe everyone!
