Children aged three years and older will be allowed to recover from home starting from Wednesday.
As of September 28, 88 children under the age of 11 have been hospitalised in Singapore. Here's how parents can keep their kids safe.
"There may be more children infected with Covid-19 in the future. We will ensure that these children receive appropriate care if their illness is more severe," said Janil Puthucheary.
A paeditrician looks into whether children can get “long COVID” where symptoms persist for months after the initial phase of the illness.
The preschool will be closed until 20 August.
The one-month-old baby boy is both – a family member and household contact of three community cases as well as a family member of two other cases.
Three students and a toddler are reported to be among the new community cases.
The child had the longest recovery period of 30 days among recovered children with coronavirus in Singapore.
The paediatrician says families should assume that children have COVID-19 if they begin to show symptoms consistent with the virus.
