Minister of Health Ong Ye Kung previously announced that he had contracted dengue fever in a Facebook post dated 15 April.
In an update posted yesterday (16 April), he thanked everyone for their well wishes and said that he is steadily recovering and that his platelet count is almost normal.
He then shed light on the SG Cares Volunteer Centre launch event that he attended at Sembawang.
Here is what he said
Thanks for all the well wishes to my last post. I’m steadily recovering and platelet count is almost normal.
Today, I attended the launch of SG Cares Volunteer Centre @ Sembawang, held in conjunction with Blossom Seeds’ Purple Party Volunteers Appreciation event.
By taking on the role of a SG Cares Volunteer Centre, Blossom Seeds will reach out to more community partners, including corporates, schools, ground-up movements, and other VWOs, to become a one stop receptacle for volunteers, and support the needs of vulnerable residents in Sembawang town.
I hope that with the Volunteer Centre, we will be able to accept every single volunteer and match them to community work that will interest them.
