There are two new nCoV cases in Singapore today, and fortunately, one of them is linked to a previous cases.

The first patient is a Singapore PR who lives in JB but travels to Singapore to work daily. He has no recent travel history to China, and had his first symptoms on 5 February 2020. Four days later, he visited a doctor and was transferred to Tan Tock Seng Hospital on the same day, and was immediately isolated. He was then tested positive for the virus yesterday afternoon.

The man had worked in Resorts World Sentosa Casino. It’s unknown if he worked as in the frontline or in an office.

The other patient is a Bangladesh national who worked in the same place as the other Bangladesh national who was tested positive previously. He had his first symptoms on 6 February 2020 and went to the doctor on 7 February 2020. The man, who lives in a rental apartment at Veerasamy Road, was also tested positive yesterday. Ever since he had his symptoms, he had stayed at home except for his journey to the GP.

This means in total, Singapore has a total of 47 confirmed cases so far.
