MOH said that child's passing marks the first COVID-19 death for patients below 12 years old in Singapore.
Contact tracing revealed that "the baby contracted COVID-19 from neighbours who visited him soon after he was born."
The death of the 58-year-old came as a shock for the family for she was declared free from coronavirus by the doctor a week prior to her death...
"We ask for your prayers for these families, particularly for the children who have to now grow up without a father."
"R.I.P Dad. We love you and we will miss you everyday. Forever in our hearts."
"Another loss due to socially irresponsible behaviour can be avoided! Let us do our part!"
The patients are a 75-year-old Singaporean woman and 64-year-old Indonesian man.
