Two more COVID-19 community care facilities with 1,700 bed spaces activated as buffer

Two more community care facilities (CCFs) have been activated to help house COVID-19 patients who show mild or no symptoms. The two facilities at the former Ang Mo Kio ITE and CSC @ Loyang will be able to house a total of about 1,700 patients. The Health Ministry said the two new facilities activated are an added buffer if there’s a need to increase capacity. There are currently three other CCFs at D’Resort NTUC, Tuas South and Bright Vision Hospital, but these are not at full capacity. Together, all five CCFs can house over 4,000 individuals.
