Two workers – a radiographer and a porter working in the same section – are among five new cases announced yesterday, prompting the centre to shut down its radiology department till Sunday.
Until it re-opens on Monday, all urgent radiological X-rays for cancer patients will be done at Singapore General Hospital’s (SGH) accident and emergency department.
