The Ministry of Health (MOH) has released a map showing areas COVID-19 patients have visited within the last three days on Friday (Oct 1). 

The map, which can be found on MOH’s COVID-19 Situation Report page under Geospatial Data, displays all of Singapore, including islands like Pulau Ubin and Pulau Semakau, in various shades of red.

The deeper the shade, the more recorded cases have visited the area recently- with the zones with the most intense red shades having 230 to 560 visitors who had COVID-19.

At the moment, there are 12 such zones: North Coast, Senoko South, Woodlands East, Yunnan, Jurong West Central, Jurong River, Kian Teck, Aljunied, Geylang East, Bedok North, Tampines East and Sengkang Town Centre.

Notably, the map does not display residential data.

“Individuals who have been to these hot spots during the same timeframe are encouraged to monitor their health, perform regular antigen rapid test self-swabs throughout the 10 days following their potential exposure, and minimise any unnecessary interaction with others,” the multi-ministry task force in charge of COVID-19 response said of the map.
