Covid19: Staff of Bedok Reservoir Pre-School Asked to Go to Khatib MRT Pick-Up Point for Swab Test

A pre-school in Bedok Reservoir has registered its staff for a slot at Khatib MRT to be picked up for swab test. This is strange as there is a pick-up point at Tampines West which is much nearer to where most of the staff are staying. It takes 1.5 hours to travel from Bedok to Khatib by MRT. During this covid-19 situation, doesn't it make sense to shorten travel distance to minimise risk of exposure to viruses?

NEW EXTENSION OF DOWNTOWN LINE TO BE RIGOROUSLY TESTED BEFORE OPENING, BREAKDOWNS UNACCEPTABLE

With this extensive testing, and with the line expected to fully open by the end of the year, let's hope this line does not suffer the same amount of breakdown as its predecessors on the other lines.

For a new MRT line, it does not make sense for it to suffer breakdowns so soon after the opening. If it does, then it hints at a poorly planned and built system, and authorities will be hard pressed to explain this off as an old line that needs repairs after years of use. This is a brand new MRT line, breakdowns should not be an issue.
