SINGAPORE — The Life Church and Missions Singapore on Sunday (March 22) mourned the death of one of its members who succumbed to Covid-19 on Saturday.

In a transcript of its pastor’s sermon which was posted on the church’s website, she was referred to as Anna.

She is understood to be Case 90, a woman who was linked to the cluster at The Life Church and Missions Singapore in Paya Lebar.

She died after 26 days in the intensive care unit, where she had been warded since her admission, the Ministry Of Health said.

“When she was wrestling with life and death in the hospital for 26 days, whether it was her family members or her brethren, they were anxious yet faithful in praying for her,” the pastor said.

“Not only was our sister infected with the novel coronavirus, she also had heart disease and hypertension.”

He called on the church’s congregants to pray for Anna’s family members.

The 75-year-old woman was admitted to the National Centre for Infectious Diseases on Feb 23 for pneumonia and was diagnosed with Covid-19 on the same day.

On Saturday, she became the first Singaporean who died from the virus, succumbing to the infection on the same day as a 64-year-old Indonesian man.

The church was the third known Singapore cluster of Covid-19 infection after a couple from Wuhan, China (Cases 8 and 9) visited it on Jan 19. The first cluster was Yong Thai Hang, a shop selling Chinese health products, and the second was a business meeting held at the Grand Hyatt Singapore.

On Saturday, Life Church and Missions Singapore clarified that Anna did not go to church on Jan 19.

She had been there only on Jan 29 and Feb 5 “to attend two small group gatherings”, the church said.

“In these two gatherings, she had no contact with any of the other nine confirmed cases that were linked to our church cluster,” it said.
