While we learnt that there were 7 imported cases yesterday, details on them were only released around 10pm last night (11 Oct).

They comprise:

  • 2 Singapore Permanent Residents (PRs) arriving from Indonesia
  • 3 Work Permit holders employed in Singapore arriving from Malaysia and the Philippines

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.
