fell on the ground and hurt my knee in Singapore, is the medical fee covered?

Hi all,

I am currently travelling in Singapore. I just fell on the ground and hurt my left knee quite badly and I struggle to walk as the pain stops me from bending it, I don't know how serious it is.

I am with CSS for health insurance and the website says "Cover for costs incurred in emergencies for outpatient or inpatient treatment in the general ward up to a maximum of twice the tariff of the canton of residence in Switzerland."

1. Is this considered as an "emergency"? if so I woud like to see a doctor here.

2. Or is this covered by accident insurance? the problem is my last internship contract in CH ended and my next one will start on Janurary, I think legally I don't have an employer today between the 2 internship durations.

Would be grateful to hear from you
