It's now just about noon August 30 in Singapore, and 9:00 pm August 29 in Vancouver. We may get a new update overnight, but until then we'll have to be content with this Joint MOH-NEA media statement (29 Aug). Excerpt:
As of 12pm, 29 August, MOH has confirmed 15 more cases of locally transmitted Zika virus infection in Singapore.
Two cases work at the construction site at 60 Sims Drive and have recovered. 13 cases live or work in the broader Sims Drive/ Aljunied Crescent area.
The two cases at the Sims Drive construction site were detected as a result of MOH’s look-back and testing of potentially infected persons. As of today, MOH has completed testing of all workers at the construction site who had symptoms of fever and rash previously. We are also screening workers staying at the dormitories located in the areas of concern.
MOH will continue to work with GPs in the area to offer testing for patients who had fever and rash previously. The look-back exercise will likely uncover more previously undiagnosed cases of Zika.
I must say I like the Singapore government's communication style. They write in good, clear English. They say what they've done, and what they expect next, good or bad. They leave it to us to infer that they are working exceedingly hard, and that they know what they are doing. (Zika testing is supposed to be a fussy, time-consuming business, but Singapore says it's tested over 30 workers without making a big deal of it.)
