Article 1 [Straits Times]
Published 3 December 2020

Title: How can Covid-19 affect pregnancy and childbirth?



SINGAPORE - Unsure about having babies because of Covid-19 or concerned about its effect on pregnancy?
A guide to safe pregnancy and delivery during the pandemic was launched on Thursday (Dec 3) by the Academy of Medicine Singapore, College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists Singapore, as well as the Obstetrical and Gynaecological Society of Singapore.

 


Article 2 [Mothership]
Published 3 December 2020

Title: Should couples try for a baby during Covid-19? Can Covid-19 be passed from mother to baby during birth? We ask an OBGYN.



The year of 2020 — of living through a global pandemic — has been a stressful and difficult time for many.
And, unfortunately, the difficult times don’t seem to be letting up anytime soon, and the future continues to be unpredictable.
Two groups of people who may be feeling worried about their future decision-making with regard to the risk of Covid-19 are expectant parents and people who are thinking about conceiving.
Can contracting Covid-19 be harmful to a mother and baby?

 


Article 3 [Channel News Asia]
Published 10 August 2020

Title: On the lookout for white 'shadows': How Tan Tock Seng Hospital uses X-rays in the fight against COVID-19



SINGAPORE: When he studies the chest x-ray of a suspected COVID-19 patient, Dr Terrence Hui is looking for a number of telltale signs, one of which is the presence of white "shadows”.
These white "shadows” are opacities in the lungs, which point to lower respiratory tract infection. This infection could mean the patient has COVID-19.

 


Article 4 [Today Online]
Published 6 May 2020

Title: Blood-pressure drugs have neutral impact on Covid-19 patients and should continue to be taken as prescribed



We refer to the Reuters report, “Blood-pressure drugs are in the crosshairs of Covid-19 research” (April 23).
Angiotensin converting enzyme (Ace) inhibitors and angiotensin receptor blockers (ARB) are classes of medication that are highly effective and are commonly used to treat high blood pressure and heart failure. These classes of medication are known to have a long-term protective effect on the heart and kidneys, especially in diabetic patients.

Article 5 [Straits Times]
Published 16 February 2020

Title: Coronavirus: MOH team races against time to trace links and stop spread.



The highs and lows in life today for Dr Vernon Lee, 42, are tied closely to whether his team is able to find the source of coronavirus infection in patients who caught the disease locally. Dr Vernon Lee finds it most rewarding at this time when his team's contact tracing prevents further spread of the coronavirus. He adds that encouraging messages from friends also give him strength.

Article 6 [Channel News Asia Insider]
Published 15 February 2020

Title: How wide the spread of COVID-19 might actually be.



 

SINGAPORE: For every person with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), it seems that at least three or four others are going to be infected too. That is how contagious the new coronavirus is, and that is a “very conservative” estimate, said Dr Asok Kurup, chairman of the Chapter of Infectious Disease Physicians, Academy of Medicine, Singapore. “The numbers are likely to be much more exponential.


 


Article 7 [Straits Times]
Published 5 February 2020

Title: Coronavirus and Sars: How China and S'pore have improved in disease management



While information flow and response capabilities are better now than during Sars in 2003, the evidence so far shows that the coronavirus originating from Wuhan is a formidable foe. Things will get worse before getting better.
