A Full-page interview with NUHS Group Director of Medicine Prof Dale Fisher, who chairs the WHO Global Outbreak Alert and Response Network, highlighted his remarks that Singapore has been ahead of the curve for several weeks in the COVID-19 outbreak. However, its strategy will have to evolve if infections continue to rise.  He noted that Singapore does not let positive patients go back to the community, which is different from what some other countries are doing. 
 
Report also highlighted a Q&A with Prof Fisher on how children appear to be asymptomatic or less likely to be sick from COVID-19 than adults, which is why there is no real reason to close schools for now. 
 
Report also featured NUS Med’s The COVID-19 Chronicles, a comic series aimed at educating the public about the disease.  ST noted that the idea for the comics were initiated by Dean Prof Chong Yap Seng.  Report added that A/Prof Hsu Li Yang from SSHSPH had also partnered graphic artist Sonny Liew to produce educational comics on COVID-19.

Facilities determine where heart attack victims are taken

The Straits Times © Singapore Press Holdings Limited. Reproduced with permission

Director of NUHCS Prof Tan Huay Cheem shared that it is not always distance that determines which hospital should treat a patient in a critical condition, but the facilities which offer that patient the best chance of survival. Prof Tan noted that NUH is a high-volume, 24/7 heart attack centre supported by a multidisciplinary cardiology team able to treat the highest-risk patient. This is why NUH and NTFGH have been working with SCDF to have all patients in the western part of Singapore sent directly to NUH. Prof Tan assured that there is no need for concern over the extra distance travelled to NUH as care is not compromised but rather enhanced.
