659 new cases of coronavirus: Dr Fong There are 657 new cases of coronavirus cases since the last update given by the Ministry for Health.

Permanent Secretary for Health Dr James Fong said 295 cases were recorded in the central division, 325 cases in the west, 36 in the north and three in the eastern division.

Dr Fong in a statement on social media said the national seven day rolling average cases as of last Saturday is 264 coronavirus cases daily.

“Health workers and front liners have done their best for two years to protect as many of us as possible; we must now do our part to protect them by getting vaccinated,” he said.

“As we have seen all over the world, even if Omicron is less likely to cause severe disease or deaths compared to previous variants.

“Higher levels of transmission mean more people getting infected in a shorter time period, which may still lead to a high number of hospitalizations and deaths.

“When people are admitted for coronavirus, medical staff are still required to organize themselves to provide care for patients.

“This means more hospital resources are needed and more staff is required to work, which puts further strain on an already stressed health system,” he said.

He said coronavirus was also not the only health challenge that health workers face every day.

He said taking the pressure off health systems will enable them to deal with the many other health challenges that our people face.

Therefore, he said the coronavirus response should now be a community-wide, whole-of-society program, where everyone plays their role.
