Lest you’ve forgotten, today is the one-year anniversary of the “lockdown” in Malaysia, and also the day when we’ve gone through six days without a community case.
As of 12pm today (18 March), the Ministry of Health (MOH) has preliminarily confirmed 15 new cases of COVID-19 infection.
All of them are imported cases.
This brings the total number of cases in Singapore to 60,152.
Based on yesterday’s figures, number of new cases in the community has remained stable at 2 cases per week in the past 2 weeks. The number of unlinked cases in the community has increased from 1 case in the week before to 2 cases in the past week.
106 Active Cases
There are currently 19 confirmed cases who are still in hospital. Of these, most are stable or improving, and none is in the intensive care unit.
87 are isolated and cared for at community facilities. These are those who have mild symptoms, or are clinically well but still test positive for COVID-19.
30 have passed away from complications due to COVID-19 infection.
