Time to avoid raw fish?

Foodstall holders have been asked to temporarily stop selling raw fish dishes using two types of fish which have been found with traces of Group B Streptococcus (GBS) bacteria.

The two types of fish are: Song fish, also known as Asian Bighead Carp; and Toman fish, also known as Snakehead fish.
The Ministry of Health (MOH) also found a link between the consumption of raw fish and GBS infections in some cases it investigated.
