Out of the 23 cases reported today, 18 of them are imported.

9 of them have come from the UK, 1 from Canada, 2 from Malaysia, 3 from the US and the rest have been to a few countries.

Of all the imported cases, only 1 is a short-term visitor (i.e. tourist)—a 55-year-old female American. Lest you didn’t know, from tomorrow 11:59pm onwards, short-term visitors can no longer enter Singapore.

For the local cases, 2 are linked to previously confirmed cases, 1 is linked to the cluster at boulder+ Gym and 2 are currently still unlinked.

Updates on Current Cases

All in all, that means we have 455 confirmed cases.

144 of them have fully recovered, while 14 are in ICU. 2 have passed away.

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

As of noon today, MOH has identified 7,957 close contacts who have been quarantined. Of these, 2,310 are currently quarantined, and 5,647 have completed their quarantine.
