Yesterday we had the lowest daily case count since 23 Feb, when four cases were reported as well.
Today, we’re not that lucky.
As of 12pm today (10 June), the Ministry of Health (MOH) has preliminarily confirmed 13 new cases of COVID-19 infection.
4 of them are community cases, and 2 of them are unlinked.
The other 9 are imported cases.
This brings the total number of cases in Singapore to 62,236.
Based on yesterday’s figures, the number of new cases in the community has decreased from 126 cases in the week before to 71 cases in the past week. The number of unlinked cases in the community has also decreased from 26 cases in the week before to 6 cases in the past week.
Unlinked Case Not Tested Even Though He Visited Clinic Twice
The sole unlinked community case is a 29-year-old male Myanmar national who works as a repair worker at Grandwork Interior.
The man developed a fever on 1 June and sought medical treatment at a GP clinic. He subsequently developed body aches on 4 June and returned to the same GP clinic. However, for reasons no one knows, he was not tested for COVID-19 on both occasions.
His infection was only detected when he was swabbed on 5 June as part of Rostered Routine Testing (RRT).
His pooled test result came back positive for COVID-19 on 7 June, and an individual test returned a positive result as well.
His earlier tests from RRT – the last being on 8 May – were all negative for COVID-19 infection. His serology test result is positive.
The 29-year-old received his first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine on 31 May.
