UPDATED 13 Feb 2019: Childcare centres in Singapore affected by HFMD


We’ve been hearing a lot about Hand Foot and Mouth Disease (HFMD) lately, and over here in
Singapore, the threat of HFMD is imminent. According to a Channel NewsAsia report, more than 25,000
cases of HFMD were reported during the first 29 weeks of the year. This is a 28 per cent increase
compared to the same period last year.
The MOH released this list so that parents “can be more aware of whether the childcare
centre/kindergarten their child is attending has prolonged HFMD transmission”. This, in turn, will help
them monitor their little ones for signs and symptoms of HFMD.
The recent outbreak of HFMD brought to the attention to the management to call for a review of its
network infrastructure so that parents can have flexi working hours.
As the network team lead, the director has tasked you to examine the current network inventory, which
is outdated, and has errors. He would also like the team to review the existing network infrastructure
and recommend the changes to be made to the network infrastructure, including the business
continuity consideration for the Wide Area Network (WAN) connectivity.
Details about the infrastructure are appended in the Appendix I for your reference.
You are expected to present your findings, and also put forth recommendations on network changes
or improvements, keeping the coming office expansion in mind, with supporting reasons, benefits and
challenges (if any).
