On October 13, K-pop boy group Seventeen performed a concert in Singapore.
It took place at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, which has a capacity of 7,000 to 12,000, depending on the size of the stage.
According to an article by Live Nation Singapore, it was not optional for concertgoers to wear masks. However, they were encouraged to exercise their “personal and social responsibility” by continuing to wear masks in crowded places.
Unfortunately, more and more fans have reported testing positive for Covid-19 after attending the concert.
These fans have also shared their seat numbers so those around them are aware and can test themselves for the virus.

To make it more convenient for other viewers, fans have created and contributed to a Google Spreadsheet to share more information.
Columns include Covid-19 test results, symptoms experienced, the category they were in, and seat or queue numbers.
There’s also a column for remarks, with fans detailing what they wore and where they went before and after the gig.
As of this writing, more than 120 viewers have completed the spreadsheet, with at least 100 testing ART-positive.
You can access the spreadsheet here.
XBB Predominant Covid-19 Variant
The Omicron XBB sub-variant is now the predominant sub-variant circulating in Singapore.
It accounts for 54% of local cases for the week beginning October 3.
Although XBB is highly transmissible, it may not be as virulent or cause more severe infections than other variants.
