Host Laura Rutledge takes the helm of this weekday show featuring the likes of Marcus Spears, Dan Orlovsky, Keyshawn Johnson, Mina Kimes, and Adam Schefter. The “NFL Live” crew entertains fans while offering all the latest news ananalysis from across the 4,223 are in community care facilities and 880 in COVID-19 treatment facilities.
The remaining 1,613 patients are warded in hospital, mostly for observation, said MOH.
Of these, 346 patients need oxygen supplementation and 61 are in intensive care.
Over the last 28 days, out of 78,985 infected people, 1 per cent needed oxygen
supplementation and 0.1 per cent were in intensive care.
In a Zoom meeting with The Straits Times on Thursday (Oct 21),
about 20 members of the savefnbsg chat group spoke about how they felt the food and beverage
(F&B) industry has been treated unfairly, and that the logic behind the rules has not been communicated clearly to them.
The chat group is a ground-up movement of more than 500 restaurants that came together during
the circuit breaker last year to support one another.
One of the members, Mr Willin Low, pointed out that while music is not allowed in
his modern Singaporean restaurant Roketto Izakaya in Amoy Street, a gym nearby was blaring music loudly
during a class where members were exercising without masks and sweating while the instructor was yelling at them.
“How is that different from my restaurant?” he asked.
Chef-owner Dave Pynt of Burnt Ends, a modern Australian eatery near Keong Saik Road,
echoed the sentiment. “There is a lack of logic with the rules applied among the different sectors because you
can have 100 people sitting in an airplane eating with their masks off. And is not having music really going to
have an impact on Covid-19 transmission?”
He also questioned the rationale of not allowing a family of five to dine together.
“Does the family create more risk than when they are at home? We just want to understand what we are
trying to achieve. Now we have no idea of the goals for the industry.”
Chef Janice Wong, who owns the Softhaus ice cream and the chocolate-centric Pure Imagination eateries
in Great World, said a family of five has to split into three tables. And the two-person rule becomes
very difficult to enforce when parents run over to help their children who are eating ice cream at another table, she added.
“It doesn’t make sense when they came into the mall together but had to split up when they sit down.
For us, the lack of an age limit is also important,” she said.
At Wednesday’s press conference, Finance Minister Lawrence Wong said the Restaurant Association of
Singapore had asked for members of the same household to be allowed to sit together at a table of five.
For now, we think it’s still too risky to make such a move because of the pressure on the healthcare system,”
said Mr Wong, noting that he understands the association’s stance.
“But it is indeed something we are looking into.”
Mr Low said that just knowing the number of patients in the intensive care units of hospitals
does not make any sense to him unless he also knows the target figure when rules can be relaxed.
Mr Christopher Millar, culinary director of the 1 Group that operates restaurants like the fine
-dining One Stellar at Raffles Place, notes that the restrictions have an impact on the food supply
chain that is invisible to the public.
“It takes time to get supplies into Singapore. So with all the restaurants hesitating with their
orders, it weakens the chain. When things open up, everything will become more expensive because
the supplies won’t be there,” he said.
Chef Ivan Yeo of The 1925 Brewing Co would like to see more communication. “When we know the
Government’s decision only four days before it happens, we can’t make any decisions,” he said.
