47-year-old woman was confirmed as first Singaporean with COVID-19 virus

A 47-year-old woman who travelled to Wuhan with her family, was yesterday confirmed as the first Singaporean with the virus.

She was one of the 92 Singaporeans evacuated from the city on Thursday.

The Ministry of Health said the woman was asymptomatic when she boarded the Scoot flight.

But upon arrival at Changi Airport, she was found to have a fever during a medical screening, and was taken to the National Centre for Infectious Diseases (NCID) — where she tested positive.

MOH also confirmed two more cases yesterday, bringing the total number of those infected with the virus, to 16.

Both the latest cases are Chinese nationals who had travelled to Wuhan. All three cases are in stable condition.

李显龙总理强调,政府将确保所有生病并且有需要的国人都可以获得口罩。

李总理在社交网站Facebook上指出,国人近期纷纷抢购口罩,他理解一些国人买不到口罩的忧虑。

他说,当局过去九天已经向零售商发放五百万个口罩,但国人对口罩的需求比预期强劲。

李总理说,政府已经动员新加坡武装部队、人民协会等多个机构,为国人准备口罩。

他也吁请国人根据卫生部的指示,只有在生病时才戴口罩,如果身体没有不适,国人就无需戴口罩。

政府跨部门工作小组今天(30/1)宣布,将从星期六到下个月9号之间分发免费口罩给100多万户本地家庭。每户家庭将获得四个口罩。
