OXIMETER FOR EVERY SINGAPORE HOUSEHOLD

“Silent pneumonia” is one of the most serious consequences of COVID-19, where seriously ill people can feel generally well, despite damaged lungs and dangerously low levels of oxygen. An oximeter can help alert us to seek medical attention when the levels become dangerously low. As such, Temasek Foundation provided one free oximeter for every Singapore household to enable everyone to monitor their blood oxygen levels regularly.

Over 300 outlets at NTUC FairPrice, Sheng Siong, Giant, Cold Storage, Watsons, Unity, and Guardian participated in this oximeter collection initiative from 5 July to 5 August 2021.
