1-year-old recovered from Covid-19

The one-year-old Singapore Citizen was the 76th confirmed patient in Singapore.

He was among the group of Singaporeans who were evacuated from Wuhan on Feb. 9 and was asymptomatic when he boarded the flight.

He was then put under quarantine upon landing in Singapore and was warded in an isolation room at the KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital (KKH).

MOH announced that this baby boy has recovered from the infection and has been discharged on Feb. 18, along with four other patients.

This is possibly the fastest discharged case of Covid-19 upon confirmation.

Another baby, six month old, is still receiving treatment at the hospital

The six-month-old is linked to the Yong Thai Hang cluster and is the son of a shopkeeper at the Chinese medicine store where a Chinese tour group visited.
