A study conducted by the Singapore’s National Centre for Infectious Diseases and the academy of medicine, Singapore states that patients, infected with SARS CoV-2 may not be infectious to other people after 11 days of getting sick, even though they might still test positive. The paper was based on as many as 73 patients in the city-state done by infectious disease expert of Singapore. The patient discharge policy might be slightly implicated. The discharges were based on negative testing and not the infectiousness of the patients. The discharge policy is guided by local and international clinical scientific evidence. So far, about 45% out of 31,068 cases of COVID-19 patients have been discharged. Singapore has also reported 642 new cases as of Sunday.
