SINGAPORE – While the overall intensive care unit (ICU) capacity is holding up, the Singapore healthcare system’s accident and emergency (A&E) departments, as well as general wards, are “coming under pressure”, Health Minister Ong Ye Kung said on Sunday (Sept 19).
“Our hospitals and healthcare workers cannot be overburdened. At this point, this is MOH’s biggest challenge and we are doing our best to solve this,” Mr Ong said in a Facebook post, adding that this is why younger, fully vaccinated people are being encouraged to recover at home.
