22 Covid-19 Cases On 11 Jan

With new variants of Covid-19 emerging, and some time before most Singapore residents can get their vaccines, we’re some way from seeing the last of this coronavirus.

But we’re definitely avoiding a large surge in local cases at the moment, so it’s a blessing that we’re able to go out and meet friends, family, and loved ones.

The Ministry of Health (MOH) confirmed as of 12pm on Monday (11 Jan) that there are 22 new Covid-19 cases.

All of them are imported.
