Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH) has effectively stopped the admissions of new patients from today (4 May) in a bid to contain their growing cluster of Covid-19 cases.
TTSH currently has 35 linked patients as of last night (3 May).
TTSH said in a Facebook post this morning (4 May):
“We seek your kind understanding that this will allow us to focus on containing this Covid-19 hospital cluster, conserve our manpower and continue supporting the pandemic response at our National Centre for Infectious Diseases during this period.”
The Ministry of Health (MOH) has also asked all hospitals to defer non-urgent surgical operations and admissions, and non-urgent specialist outpatient clinic appointments, to be deferred until further notice.
TTSH also added in their Facebook post, advising those who require urgent care to visit a GP or the nearest care facility.
At the time of writing, the cluster has since seen 1 death; an 88-year-old patient who was in the affected ward 9D.
