6. Overall, the number of new cases in the community has increased from 479 cases in the week before to 1,021 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 also increased from 35 cases in the week before to 143 cases in the past week. The 7-day moving average number of all linked community cases and all unlinked community cases are 125.4 and 20.4 respectively.
