Finance Minister and co-chair Lawrence Wong thanked Singaporeans for their efforts in minimising social activities to stop further COVID-19 transmission but cautioned that the number of cases here will continue to rise.

"Unfortunately, despite our collective efforts, the virus continues to gain ground," he said.

Wong noted that the natural reproduction rate of the contagious Delta variant – if left unfettered without any safe management measures in place – is "easily around five or six".

"We were able to bring the reproduction rate...down to about 1.5. That's already a significant reduction," he said.

But even so, cases are still doubling every week or so, Wong stressed. "That's the reality – and to bring it further down requires a lot more effort."

At about 1,600 daily new cases currently, Singapore sees about 26 infections per 100,000 population per day.

While lower than what is experienced in the UK and the US, which are seeing about 40 to 50 cases per 100,000 population per day, it is "higher than many other European countries that have reached an equilibrium", such as Germany, France, Italy, and Spain, which are seeing about seven to 10 cases, Ong said.

"This is a possible reference point for us. If we carefully chart our way forward in this transition journey, we will see cases continuing to rise. At some point, it will turn before coming down and stabilising at a level that represents a new equilibrium," he added.

But this new level is likely to be much higher than what Singaporeans are used to, said Wong.

"In other words, we are not going back to a scenario of low daily cases anymore. It is not going to be possible because we are moving forward to learn to live with the virus and we are continuing with our reopening plans," he noted, later adding that authorities have no immediate plans to place Singapore under a lockdown or Heightened Alert restrictions.

Singapore to go back to 2-person dine-in rule for 4 weeks from Monday



Singapore will return to a two-person dining-in rule for a period of four weeks from next Monday (27 September), as it aims to slow down community COVID-19 transmission.

From Monday until 24 October, groups of up to two persons will be allowed to dine-in at regular food-and-beverages (F&B) establishments, if all the diners are fully vaccinated. This is a reduction from the current limit of five persons for dine-in.

The Ministry of Health (MOH) announced in a media release on Friday that unvaccinated individuals with a valid negative pre-event test (PET) result, recovered individuals, and children aged 12 years and below may also be included in such groups of two.

For hawker centres and coffee shops, the concession to dine-in at these premises will remain at up to two persons, regardless of vaccination status, as they offer essential food services to the community.

F&B establishments that are not able to ensure that all dine-in patrons meet the criteria for full vaccination may only operate take-away and delivery services. At this stage of the transition, entertainment such as live performances, recorded music, and videos/TV screening will continue to be prohibited.

Patrons to F&B establishments are also reminded to adhere to all safe management measures and keep their masks on at all times except when eating or drinking.

Social gathering sizes also reduced from five to two
Permissible group sizes for social gatherings will also be reduced from a maximum of five persons to a maximum of two persons. Correspondingly, the maximum number of unique visitors per household will be reduced to two per day.

Individuals should continue to limit their overall number of social gatherings to not more than one per day, whether to another household, or meeting with friends and family members in a public place.

MOH said in its media release that it strongly encourages all individuals to reduce social activities and wear face masks.

"In particular, the elderly and persons with co-morbidities who are more vulnerable to severe illnesses, should stay home as much as possible, except for essential activities such as working, buying food and groceries, seeing the doctor, and exercising individually in uncrowded locations," it said.

Thousands of teachers may be forced out of NYC schools next week because of vaccine mandate



Thousands of New York City teachers may not be in the classroom come Tuesday morning because they have not been vaccinated against coronavirus.

That's the morning after a city vaccine mandate for educators goes into effect. Unions representing classroom teachers, principals and supervisors say the mandate's introduction has been so poorly handled that many school employees will be suspended, resulting in unsafe schools.
New York City educators in general are more vaccinated than the rest of the city, state and nation. Some 81% of all Department of Education employees and 87% of teachers have received at least one dose as of Thursday night, according to the NYC Department of Education (DOE).
But that still means approximately 10,000 city teachers have yet to show they have had at least one shot of vaccine. If they do not, they risk losing their jobs. Workers have an option of taking a year of unpaid leave or getting a severance package if they do not get vaccinated as required by Mayor Bill de Blasio .

Wisconsin (USA) reports more COVID cases in children than any other age group


So far this week, more than 1,100 people under the age of 18 in Wisconsin have tested positive for COVID-19. That is more than any other age group, according to state Department of Health Services data.

Last week, 4,686 people under the age of 18 tested positive — more than double any other age group. In fact, since the week of Aug. 8, children have been diagnosed with more cases than every other group each week.

Children's Hospital of Wisconsin continues to see an increase in the number of kids in the hospital who test positive for COVID-19, but most are asymptomatic unless they have underlying health conditions.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, Wisconsin has recorded three deaths in people age 19 and younger.

蒙古單日增18宗新冠病毒死亡 疫情爆發以來新高



蒙古單日新增18宗新冠病毒死亡病例,屬當地新高。另外,蒙古過去24小時新增2662宗病例,累計確診292591宗,累計1116宗死亡病例。

蒙古自8月中以來,疫情在首都烏蘭巴托和各省迅速蔓延,但由於床位短缺等原因,目前僅約2萬名患者住院治療,超過6萬名輕症患者居家隔離治療。衛生部說,醫護人員嚴重短缺,長期處於超負荷工作,也無法招募足夠數量醫護人員。

蒙古約340萬人口中的近7成人,已接種至少一劑新冠疫苗,超過6成半人完成兩劑接種。

日本增2674宗確診 東京多382宗病例



日本新增2674宗新型肺炎確診病例,其中東京都新增382宗,連續10天單日數字維持在1000宗以下,亦是連續34天比一星期前同期回落。至於重症患者人數則減至131人。

當地傳媒報道,日本政府計劃下月容許,已完成接種新冠疫苗人士,入境後家居檢疫日數,由14日縮短至10日。安排只限於接種輝瑞/BioNTech、莫德納與阿斯利康疫苗人士。

根據目前規定,從高危地區前往日本的人士,入境後頭三天,須在政府指定設施檢疫,如果對病毒檢測呈陰性,餘下檢疫期可轉到家居進行。至於來自非高危地區則可在到埗後直接家居隔離。若然實施新規定,來自高危地區亦可直接家居隔離。

Idaho morgues are running out of space for bodies as covid-19 deaths mount



Dave Salove has watched his morgue fill with bodies. Covid-19 victims have poured into the funeral home he runs in Boise, Idaho, in recent weeks, as the state contends with an unprecedented spike in deaths driven by the delta variant of the coronavirus. His 16-slot refrigeration room is over capacity. Other funeral homes have neared a tipping point, too.

Intent on avoiding the makeshift morgues that cropped up in the Northeast during the pandemic's first wave, Salove this week brought in a refrigerated trailer to hold the growing number of dead. By Friday, there were seven corpses inside, up from two the day before. Six more were on their way from another facility.
