Singapore firm to give $10,000 to family

The Straits Times, Singapore

The family of a 39 year old Singapore expatriate, who is in critical condition in Singapore after tested CONVID-19 positive, is going to receive $ 10,000 donation via telegraphic bank transfer from The Migrant Workers' Centre (MWC).

The worker, who was staying at The Leo dormitory in Kaki Bukit, was Singapore's case 42. In a Facebook post yesterday,

the MWC said it has been “a distressing period of time for his family as he is the sole breadwinner”.

The centre had contacted his next of kin through his employer soon after he was hospitalised, and has been providing the family with updates on his condition.

“We hope that the timely updates could offer them some comfort and solace during this period of time,” the MWC added.

The $10,000 assistance package is meant to help the worker’s family take care of urgent purchases or payments associated with day-to-day expenses or other financial needs, the centre said.

The Government will bear the cost of the worker’s medical treatment during his stay in hospital. Four other Bangladeshi workers have been infected with the coronavirus.

Meanwhile, Chinese ambassador in Dhaka Li Jiming yesterday said Bangladeshis particularly those were studying in his country should currently stay there for their appropriate medical safety against the backdrop of coronavirus outbreak and prevent its spread in Bangladesh.

“It is the best option right now for them to stay in China for their own safety,” the envoy said during a meeting with national news agency BSS chief editor and managing director Abul Kalam Azad at his office.
