A new strain of Covid has been dubbed the Nightmare Variant after it rapidly doubled the number of new infections in a matter of days in countries where it has been detected. The strain, known as XBB, has been found in more than 17 countries in Asia and Europe, with a handful of cases now found in the USA.

The new variant, dubbed Nightmare by some media in Asia because of its rapid spread, appears able to more easily evade protection granted to most people by Covid vaccines and previous infections, but there are no signs it causes more serious illness.

It has also been found in Hong Kong. Singapore Ministry of Health said XBB went from being responsible for 22% of cases to being responsible for 54% of cases in one week. 79% of people in Singapore are fully vaccinated.

Singapores health ministry said there is no evidence that XBB causes more severe illness, although it appears resistant to treatments. Singapore saw the number of new cases of Covid double from 4,719 on 10 October to 11,732 on October 11, according to Johns Hopkinss Coronavirus Resource Center.

Halloween is fast approaching. We want to give you some tips on how to stay safe if staying in or going out during this time.

Attached is a leaflet that can be printed out and placed by your front door, if you would like to discourage those knocking on your door. https://assets.neighbourhoodalert.co.uk/images/site_images/91030_Resident_Poster_Halloween.pdf

Please respect these signs if ‘trick or treating’ or otherwise avoid houses that aren’t decorated or with pumpkins.

When trick or treating:

• A responsible adult should accompany young children on the neighbourhood rounds
• If your older children are going alone, plan and review a route acceptable to you
• Agree on a specific time children should return home
• Teach your children never to enter a stranger's home or car
• Instruct children to travel only in familiar, well-lit areas and stick with their friends
• Take care to avoid any food allergies
• Wear an item that is high visibility, or carry torches to make yourselves and your route visible to others
• Take care when crossing roads and using walkways

Tips for motorists:

● Watch for children walking on roadways, medians and curbs
● Enter and exit driveways and alleys carefully
● At twilight and later in the evening, watch for children in dark clothing

Halloween is approaching and for some people this time of year can be a bother as your evenings are interrupted with people knocking on your door for treats.   Most of these people are children or teenagers who are getting involved in the Halloween celebrations and will be friendly.
Attached is a leaflet that can be printed out and placed by your front door, if you would like to discourage trick or treaters on this night.
There is also a list of tips to make sure everyone stays happy and safe whilst out and about in their community.
Remember, if a house isnt displaying a pumpkin or other Halloween decorations then please do not knock on their door.
