Singapore’s Ministry  of Health has asked public hospitals to move suitable patients to transitional or home care facilities to ensure bed capacity following  COVID-19 resurgence.

This is contained  in a statement issued on Saturday.

The ministry explained that by this development, public hospitals are  to reduce non-emergency surgeries as part of the precaution measures against the spread of the pandemic.

The ministry said an estimated number of COVID-19 cases rose to 25,900, from May 5 to 11  against  13,700 accorded in the previous week.

It added that the average daily COVID-19 hospitalisation rose to 250 from 181.

The KP.1 and KP.2 variants account for over two-thirds of COVID-19 cases in Singapore.

The ministry, therefore, called on residents to step up vaccination to protect against severe illness.
