Here’s a breakdown of the details, according to MOH:

- 2 Dependant’s Pass holders from India
- 3 Student’s Pass holders from India
- 2 Work Pass holders from the United Arab Emirates and the United States

- 1 is from India who’s here to visit her Singaporean family member
- Another is also from India and is here for studies
They had all already been placed on SHN upon arrival in Singapore. Authorities had tested them during their stay.
Stay vigilant even as vaccines are underway
The existence of community cases has been fluctuating every now and then, though it is good to note that this is the 4th straight day that there were none.
This also shows that we shouldn’t be taking Singapore’s progress for granted. We should remain vigilant, so that we won’t be jeopardising the authorities’ efforts in controlling the pandemic.
Mask up, practise safe distancing, and more importantly, good hygiene.
