New daddy released from hospital
Singapore's 42nd Covid-19 patient, a 39-year-old Bangladeshi construction worker, has been transferred to a general ward after being in intensive care for over two months.
The Migrant Workers' Centre (MWC) announced via Facebook that the man has been taken off the ventilator and is no longer sedated. He was one of the first migrant workers diagnosed with the disease now affecting so many migrant workers.
Case 42 has spent the second-longest period of time in the hospital aside from a 64-year-old Singaporean man who was warded one day earlier.
While he was unconscious, his wife back home gave birth to a baby boy on March 30.
