We’re exactly one month away from Christmas, and chances are if the number of daily cases remains the same by 25th next month, we might be able to celebrate Christmas in groups of eight instead of groups of five.
Today (25 Nov), as of 12pm, the Ministry of Health (MOH) has preliminarily confirmed 7 new cases of COVID-19 infection.
Once again, they’re all imported.
This brings the total number of cases in Singapore to 58,190. This is also the 15th day whereby there is no locally transmitted infection.
Based on yesterday’s number, the number of new cases in the community has remained extremely low, with no new cases in the past week.
