Update on measures regarding workers’ dormitory:

2019-nCoV (DORSCON Orange) Enhanced precautionary measures for workers’ dormitories

MOM’s advisory
All dormitories are to step up cleaning and precautionary measures, such as:
– Suspending mass activities
– Staggering use of common facilities
– Arranging for residents on LOA to stay together in a separate section of the dormitory
– Ensuring food arrangements for those on LOA

Dormitory operators are required to provide daily updates to MOM, and keep a record of residents on LOA.

Update
The 39 year old Bangladeshi confirmed with nCoV on 9 Feb was kept away from his workplace, and mostly stayed in his room when unwell.

His close contacts have been quarantined, and MOM has determined that other residents can go to work as usual. The risk of transmission through casual contact is low.

Cleaning of common areas of the dormitory he stayed at has been stepped up from once to twice daily.

Another clarification regarding the nature of COVID-19:

Your 🤔questions about Coronavirus (COVID-19) answered – by infectious disease expert Dr Leong Hoe Nam

How does it spread?
Much like familiar cold viruses or influenza, COVID-19 spreads primarily by respiratory droplets, which come out through saliva or when we sneeze. It is not in the air.

Is it possible to contract COVID-19 from someone who is not showing symptoms?
Those with no symptoms are less likely to have nasal discharge or cough, and are hence less likely to transmit. In truth, we suspect the actual risk to be very low.

What treatments exist to help COVID-19 patients?
Most of the time, best supportive care (i.e. adequate hydration, food and oxygen when needed) will work for more than 90% of patients.
