False statements were made in several Facebook posts about the dinner event at SAFRA Jurong on 15 February 2020, which a COVID-19 cluster has been traced to.
Between 8 March 2020 and 17 March 2020, there were posts by several Facebook users claiming that the People’s Association (“PA
”) and/or the Residents’ Committees (“RCs
”) were involved in the organisation of the dinner event at SAFRA Jurong on 15 February 2020 which a COVID-19 cluster was later traced to.
This is entirely false. PA and the RCs were not involved in the organisation of the dinner event at SAFRA Jurong on 15 February 2020, and were not in a position to cancel it. PA and the RCs also did not fund nor publicise the dinner event. The event was a private dinner function organised by a singing instructor for members of her singing groups.
