Singapore ICU bed Occupancy Rate Rise amid Increasing Covid Cases

The Index Today

The rising number of severe covid cases in Singapore has led to a shortage of ICU beds, with only 60 beds being vacant so far. Reports show the nation is suffering from one of the worst covid waves and has already reached an ICU bed occupancy rate of 83.6%.

Ong Ye Kung, Health Minister of Singapore stated last week that the government is working on increasing ICU bed capacity at all major hospitals to tackle rising infection rates. Authorities have warned that the nation’s healthcare system is overburdened.

Strict covid measures are being implemented across the nation despite influx of international tourists. Officials have said rules will become more relaxed as soon as cases in hospitals start seeing a decline in the nearby future.

Ong Ye Kung further stated, “Our hospitals and health0care workers continue to come under tremendous pressure.” Over 3000 new covid cases have been reported on Monday, with 14 deaths caused by covid-related complications.
