It seems like community cases have magically disappeared again.
Today (10 January 2021), as of 12pm, the Ministry of Health (MOH) has preliminarily confirmed 42 new cases of COVID-19 infection.
All of them are imported cases.
This brings the total number of cases in Singapore to 58,907.
Based on yesterday’s figures, the number of new cases in the community has decreased from 10 cases in the week before to 8 cases in the past week. The number of unlinked cases in the community has increased from 4 cases in the week before to 5 cases in the past week.
No More Infection at Crowne Plaza After MOH Conducted ‘Special Testing Operation’
234 staff working at Crowne Plaza Changi Airport were swabbed as part of a “special testing operation” by MOH.
Fortunately, all 234 Covid-19 tests have returned a negative result.
However, MOH is still investigating the three cases detected earlier.
Based on its preliminary investigations, the ministry cannot dismiss the possibility that transmissions could have occurred at the hotel.
The hotel, including its restaurant and event spaces, will remain closed until 21 Jan.
