Today marks the end of our Q&M volunteers swabbing work since 23rd April 2020, in preparation for full dentistry work resumption come 1st June at the end of CB hopefully.
We had swabbed 14,000 foreign workers (FW).
Deployed 867 dentists and nurses sessions spending more than 2500 hours at more than 160 FCD (factories converted dormitories) in 24 full days of swabbing.
Our swabber dentists and nurses team had been fully protected by N99 masks, goggles with seal, white coverall, faceshields, surgical cap and shoe cover plus surgical gown.
We also double glove and change the outer pair of glove for every FW.
Some of our swabber dentists become specialised trainers of swabbers also, like Drs Choo Keang Hai, Hwang Yea Chau and Tan Hwee Hiang.
Special thanks to commanders dentists at our command centre like Drs Alvin Lee, Mohan, Chao Shu, Fadz, Tabitha, Luisa, Jun Xian plus HR Dave.
