Condition of confirmed cases

5. 592 cases are currently warded in hospital.  Most are well and under observation. There are currently 37 cases of serious illness requiring oxygen supplementation, and 7 in critical condition in the intensive care unit (ICU). 6 amongst these 44 cases are fully vaccinated. Of these, 4 require oxygen supplementation while 2 require ICU care as they have underlying medical conditions. 31 seniors above 60 years, of whom 27 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 967 cases in the week before to 799 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 173 cases in the week before to 254 cases in the past week. The 7-day moving average number of all linked community cases and all unlinked community cases are 77.9 and 36.3 respectively.
