SINGAPORE — A cafe at the National University of Singapore Business School was among several locations added to a list of public places visited by Covid-19 cases during their infectious period.

The cafe, called The Spread, was visited on three separate occasions.

In its evening update on the coronavirus situation in Singapore on Sunday (Sept 13), the Ministry of Health (MOH) said that the infectious persons had visited:

  • Ameen Makan House at 4 Cheong Chin Nam Road on Aug 30 between 12pm and 12.45pm

MOH said that it would have already notified individuals who were identified as close contacts of the confirmed cases.

"As a precautionary measure, persons who had been at these locations during the specified timings should monitor their health closely for 14 days from their date of visit," it added.

"They should see a doctor promptly if they develop symptoms of acute respiratory infection (such as cough, sore throat and runny nose), as well as fever and loss of taste or smell, and inform the doctor of their exposure history."

Members of the public do not need to avoid places where confirmed cases of Covid-19 have been, MOH said.

The National Environment Agency will engage the management of the affected premises to provide guidance on cleaning and disinfection.

MOH reported 49 new Covid-19 cases in Singapore on Sunday. Of these, eight are imported while one is in the community.
