Condition of confirmed cases

5.     590 cases are currently warded in hospital.  Most are well and under observation. There are currently 35 cases of serious illness requiring oxygen supplementation, and 8 in critical condition in the intensive care unit (ICU). 4 amongst these 43 cases are fully vaccinated. Of these, 3 require oxygen supplementation while 1 requires ICU care as they have underlying medical conditions. 29 seniors above 60 years, of whom 26 are completely unvaccinated or partially vaccinated, have fallen very ill.

Summary of trends for local cases

7.     Overall, the number of new cases in the community has decreased from 1,056 cases in the week before to 862 cases in the past week. We are likely to continue to see high number of cases in the coming days as we step up efforts to detect them to contain their spread in the community. The number of unlinked cases in the community has increased from 119 cases in the week before to 282 cases in the past week. The 7-day moving average number of all linked community cases and all unlinked community cases are 82.9 and 40.3 respectively.
