There were 17 new coronavirus cases confirmed as at Tuesday noon (May 4). Of these, five are from the community and were detected from the Health Ministry’s proactive testing of patients, visitors and staff at Tan Tock Seng Hospital or their close contacts, and had already been placed on quarantine.

In total, 40 cases are now linked to the TTSH cluster. It is the largest of nine active clusters in Singapore. Multimedia correspondent Yeo Sam Jo shares the latest.

There were also 12 imported cases reported on Tuesday who had been placed on stay-home notice on arrival in Singapore.

According to a Ministry of Social and Family Development report, a bigger percentage of married couples are going their separate ways in recent years, especially among those who tied the knot more recently. The report, which tracked 29 cohorts of all couples who wed between 1987 and 2015, also found that marriages among those who wed more recently break up earlier compared with those who were married for a longer time. Arthur Ling, deputy executive director at Fei Yue Community Services, sheds some light on this topic.

Philanthropists and billionaire couple Bill and Melinda Gates are divorcing after 27 years of marriage. In a joint petition for dissolution of marriage filed in King County Superior Court in Seattle, the couple stated: “The marriage is irretrievably broken.”
