A total of 47 cases were reported today.

39 of them were imported, with 33 of them being returning Singapore residents (i.e. Singaporeans, Singapore PRs or long-term pass holders). The other 6 were short-term visitors (most probably tourists).

2 imported cases aren’t warded in public hospitals but private hospitals instead: a 22-year-old female Indonesian who is on a short-term pass is warded in Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital while a 77-year-old male Indonesian, who has a long-term pass, is warded in Mount Elizabeth Hospital.

16 of them have been to the UK. There is, however, one case with a pending travel history; he’s a 25-year-old male Spain national.

Of the remaining 8 local cases, 2 are linked to previously confirmed cases. 6 of them currently have no established links yet.

Updates on Confirmed Cases

All in all, the total number of cases is now at 432.

As you probably know by now, there have been 2 deaths which were just announced this morning.

140 patients have fully recovered and are discharged, while 14 are in ICU.

The conditions of the remaining patients are either stable or improving.

As of noon today, MOH has identified 7,544 close contacts who have been quarantined. Of these, 2,587 are currently quarantined, and 4,957 have completed their quarantine.

You can help in contact tracing by downloading the TraceTogether app.
