3rd Aug 2020

        As of 3 August 2020, 12pm, the Ministry of Health (MOH) has preliminarily confirmed an additional 226 cases of COVID-19 infection in Singapore, the vast majority of whom are Work Permit holders residing in foreign worker dormitories. Based on our investigations so far, there is 1 case in the community involving a Prison inmate on Short-Term Visit Pass, who had arrived in Singapore before the implementation of border measures. He had been segregated from the general inmate population since his admission to Changi Prison Complex on 30 July, and was tested as part of the Singapore Prison Service’s proactive screening of newly admitted inmates.

2.      In addition, there are 9 imported cases, who had all been placed on Stay-Home Notice upon arrival in Singapore.

3.      We are still working through the details of the cases, and further updates will be shared via the MOH press release that will be issued tonight.
