Measures Implemented Again To Curb Rising Numbers: 5 Back To Two
In news that would cause dismay and rage, the government has announced new measures that would mean dialling back dining in group sizes back to two instead of five.
This was despite the fact that the relaxing of measures to five had only started on Monday. This new set of measures was employed to tackle the growing KTV cluster that has been spiking in large numbers.
The suspension affects more than 400 such businesses, said the Ministry of Health (MOH), adding that they will be individually notified about the decision.
“During this period, we will test all the staff of these establishments. We will also inspect the safe management measures protocols in these establishments, and ensure these are properly implemented before they are allowed to resume F&B operations,” said the ministry.
The KTV COVID-19 cluster, which was first reported on Jul 12, has 120 cases linked to it as of Friday. This is up from 88 infections on Thursday.
