Today’s the first day when everyone’s staying at home, so for the number to be at three-digit isn’t too surprising.
However, what’s worrying is that the number of unlinked cases have grown; today, 41 of them are unlinked.
Here’s today’s announcement.
106 New COVID-19 Cases in S’pore Today; 41 Are Currently Still Unlinked
Of the 106 confirmed cases today, only 3 of them are imported.
41 cases have no known links yet.
Of the remaining 62 cases, 52 are linked to known clusters:
- 10 are linked to the S11 Dormitory @ Punggol cluster (total cases: 98)
- 5 are linked to the Westlite Toh Guan dormitory cluster (total cases: 34)
- 4 are linked to the Toh Guan Dormitory cluster (total cases: 18)
- 12 are linked to the Sungei Tengah Lodge cluster (total cases: 18)
- 8 are linked to the Tampines Dormitory cluster (total cases: 17)
- 5 are linked to the Cochrane Lodge I cluster (total cases: 7)
- 1 is linked to the Cochrane Lodge II cluster (total cases: 5)
- 7 are linked to the Mustafa Centre cluster (total cases: 45)
- 3 are linked to the Lee Ah Mooi Old Age Home cluster (total cases: 16)
As you can probably tell, the clusters in dormitories are growing. Three dormitories have been designated as isolation areas: S11 Dormitory @ Punggol which has 98 cases, Westlite Toh Guan which has 34 cases and Toh Guan Dormitory which has 18 cases.
MOH also provided details of three patients who worked in the public healthcare sector.
The first is a 22-year-old Singaporean who was announced yesterday. She works as a nurse in Singapore General Hospital.
The second is a 35-year-old Singaporean who works as a nurse in Ng Teng Fong General Hospital, and had worked for a few hours on the day that she had her symptoms.
The third is a 61-year-old Singaporean who works as a healthcare assistant at Hougang Polyclinic.
