The other case was picked up through routine testing at the dorms.
7 imported cases serving SHNs
While we learnt that there were 7 imported cases yesterday, details on them were only released around 10pm last night (11 Oct).
- 2 Singapore Permanent Residents (PRs) arriving from Indonesia
- 3 Work Permit holders employed in Singapore arriving from Malaysia and the Philippines
- 2 Dependant’s Pass holders from the Philippines and Saudi Arabia.
All of them showed no symptoms despite the positive Covid-19 test results.
Average of 1 community case a day in past week
Although Covid-19 remains a threat in our society, authorities are reporting an encouraging trend of 1 community case a day in the past week.
The same can be said for unlinked community cases, which as gone down from 1 to 0 in the past week.
Stay vigilant and practise good hygiene. With a little more patience, we hope Singapore will be out of the woods real soon.
