Donning masks, cohorting arrangements, isolation in camp – life has changed for the airmen and women of the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) amid the COVID-19 pandemic as they continue to watch over the skies and do their part for the community.
75 days of operations, 5,173 patients and 373 SAF personnel. Since 17 Apr, personnel from the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) have worked round the clock at the Singapore EXPO Community Care Facility (CCF) to provide care for recovering COVID-19 patients.
Not your usual In-Camp Training (ICT): Military Expert (ME) 4A (NS) Muhammad Nurhafiz Bin Juma’at, 32, shares his story as a front-liner in the battle against COVID-19. A Nursing Officer in 8th Combat Support Hospital (8 CSH), he was deployed alongside his fellow servicemen to take care of patients at the Singapore Expo Community Care Facility (CCF).
Being in the midst of the fight against COVID-19 and working 12-hour shifts can be both mentally and physically draining.
The new Community Recovery Facility at Changi Exhibition Centre can house about 1,700 recovering COVID-19 patients in an outdoor setting where they get to enjoy fresh air and stretch their legs. The CEC also taps on technology to ensure safety and increase the efficiency of the operations.
