3.            Please refer to the Annexes and MOH’s daily Situation Report (www.moh.gov.sg/covid-19/situation-report) for details.

4.            Epidemiological investigations are in progress. In the meantime, all the identified close contacts of the cases have been isolated and placed on quarantine, and will be tested at the start and end of their quarantine period so that we can detect asymptomatic cases. We will also conduct serological tests for the close contacts to determine if the cases could have been infected by them.

5.            MOH has been monitoring existing clusters for any further transmission. As there have been no more cases linked to the cluster at Westlite Toh Guan Dormitory (18 Toh Guan Road East) for the past two incubation periods (i.e. 28 days), the cluster has now been closed.

 

Update on condition of confirmed cases

6.            9 more cases of COVID-19 infection have been discharged from hospitals or community isolation facilities. In all, 57,968 have fully recovered from the infection and have been discharged from hospitals or community care facilities.

7.            There are currently 34 confirmed cases who are still in hospital. Of these, most are stable or improving, and none is in the intensive care unit. 24 are isolated and cared for at community facilities. These are those who have mild symptoms, or are clinically well but still test positive for COVID-19. 28 have passed away from complications due to COVID-19 infection.
