COVID-19 outbreak: 900 GP clinics progressively activated as Public Health Preparedness Clinics

About 900 GP clinics are being progressively activated as Public Health Preparedness Clinics (PHPCs) to care for patients with respiratory symptoms. Compared to a regular clinic, patient registration starts from outside the clinic. Patients need to fill up a questionnaire about their travel history. Should any patient be deemed a suspect case, they will be brought through the clinic’s back door to enter the isolation room. There, the doctor uses a different set of medical equipment and will also don personal protective equipment to prevent potential transmission. Suspect cases of COVID-19 will be sent to the National Centre for Infectious Diseases.
