Govt says COVID-19 clusters in migrant worker dorms spiralled into "a crisis within a crisis"
Singapore’s COVID-19 White Paper also highlighted its response to coronavirus cases that emerged in migrant worker dormitories. The government said “insufficient initial precautions” and workers being confined to their dorms were some of the issues that could have been handled better. When the first dormitory case was detected on Feb 8, 2020, the initial response was to follow procedures that were put in place following the SARS crisis. But, with more clusters emerging in dormitories, the situation soon spiralled into what the government now calls “a crisis within a crisis”.
