I guess we can most probably celebrate Christmas in style now, because the number of daily cases has continued to remain low.
Today (18 October 2020), as of 12 pm, the Ministry of Health (MOH) has preliminarily confirmed 7 new cases of COVID-19 infection.
5 of them are imported cases, 1 is a dorm case and the remaining 1 is a community case.
This brings the total number of cases to 57,911
On average, based on yesterday’s numbers, the number of new cases in the community has remained stable at an average of fewer than 1 case per day in the past 2 weeks.
The number of unlinked cases in the community has also remained stable at an average of fewer than 1 case per day in the past 2 weeks.
Fewer Than 80 Cases in Isolation Hospitals or Community Care Facilities
Other than fewer daily cases, our hospitals have fewer patients, too.
Yesterday, 14 more cases of COVID-19 infection have been discharged from hospitals or community isolation facilities.
This means there are currently 37 confirmed cases who are still in hospital. Of these, most are stable or improving, and none is in the intensive care unit. 41 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.
28 have passed away from complications due to COVID-19 infection.
