What we can learn from Singapore’s COVID-19 containment response in primary care

Singapore, a global hub for international travel and business, was among the first countries affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. With its first confirmed COVID-19 case on Jan. 23, 2020, the country mounted aggressive public health and containment measures. The country’s network of primary care clinics were at the front lines of these measures. In this new report, those physicians share their triage, containment and infection control measures — including protocols they put in place to ensure the safety of health care workers.
