    SINGAPORE - A new Covid-19 cluster has emerged at the Marsiling Lane Hawker Centre and Wet Market at Blocks 20 and 21.

    Mr Zaqy told The Straits Times (ST) that there are 52 cooked food stalls, 71 meat produce stalls, 34 vegetable produce stalls and seven piece and sundry stalls at the hawker centre and wet market.

    When ST visited the hawker centre and wet market on Tuesday afternoon, it was empty and had been cordoned off.

    On Saturday (Sept 18), the Toa Payoh Lorong 8 Market and Food Centre closed after Covid-19 cases were found.

    Many cat lovers can only fantasise about owning a house full of kitties but one lucky man is living the dream with his newly-opened cat cafe.

    For a cat cafe, the admission prices are surprisingly affordable.

    For Paws Claws Petstore, you'll have to sign a waiver before entering and need to be at least seven years old.

    Therefore, it isn't surprising that Paws Claws Petstore also offers grooming services such as detangling, nail clipping, deshedding and underbelly shaving.

    The changes will take effect in November, subject to the passing of the Covid-19 Public Health Response Amendment Bill.

    New Zealand reported 14 new cases on Covid-19 on Tuesday, which compares with an earlier daily case peak of more than 80 cases in August.

    Ardern's tough lockdowns and international border closures helped rein in Covid-19, but her government has been criticised for a slow vaccination rollout.

    The government has made efforts to ramp up its vaccine drive with purchases of additional vaccine doses from Spain and Denmark.

    This led to people asking if an inactivated virus vaccine like Sinovac, works just as well as getting infected, since the entire killed virus is used.

    Prof Ooi also explained why the combination of vaccination and a mild infection is good, and why what is currently happening in Singapore may help the population.

    Should the virus mutate too much, it may affect the response - a possible reason for the lower vaccine protection against the current Delta variant.

    Getting infected alone does not give the same level of protection as a combination of vaccine and infection, said Prof Ooi.

    The 15-year-old boy from the United Kingdom was rushed to hospital after he inserted a USB cable into his penis to measure its length.

    When he failed to remove it, the cable became even more tangled and caused him to urinate blood.

    The report said: “Both ends of the wire were pulled out successfully through the external urethral meatus (opening of the urethra)”.

    The teen was discharged from hospital a day after the surgery and went for a follow-up scan two weeks later.

    The state requires all construction workers to receive at least one vaccine dose by the end of this week.

    Tuesday's 603 new infections in Victoria were the highest daily figure this year, with one new death was recorded.

    New South Wales reported 1,022 new infections, the majority in Sydney, its capital, up from Monday's figure of 935, and 10 deaths.

    Even with the Delta outbreaks, Australia's Covid-19 infections are lower than many comparable nations, with 88,700 cases and 1,178 deaths.

    Throat cancer is a type of head and neck cancer.

    To identify the type of throat cancer one has, the region where the cancer is found determines the type of throat cancer.

    As most throat cancer symptoms are not unique to cancer, your doctor will likely look into other more common causes first, before suspecting cancer.

    KABUL - Afghanistan's Taliban rulers said on Tuesday (Sept 21) there was no evidence of Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) or Al-Qaeda militants being in the country, days after ISIS claimed responsibility for bomb attacks in the eastern city of Jalalabad.

    Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid rejected accusations that Al-Qaeda maintained a presence in Afghanistan and repeated pledges that there would be no attacks on third countries from Afghanistan from militant movements.

    "We do not see anyone in Afghanistan who has anything to do with Al-Qaeda," he told a news conference in Kabul.

    The Taliban were ousted from power by US-led forces in 2001 for refusing to hand over Al-Qaeda leaders responsible for the Sept 11 attacks.

    I stumbled upon a Timeout London article, with a recipe by Eggslut’s London outpost on the brand’s signature Fairfax sandwich, and here’s my attempt at making the iconic breakfast creation that spotlights luscious scrambled eggs between fluffy brioche buns.

    Add the creamy eggs onto warmed buns, before adding a dash of sriracha mayo to spice it up.

    Having tried the original Fairfax sandwich at the new store (you can check out our review here), I’d say it’s similar but not exactly the real deal.

    Otherwise, I’d just head down to Eggslut’s store to get my fix — if and once the queues die down, that is.
