5 imported cases yesterday
Summing up yesterday’s updates, Singapore had confirmed 5 Covid-19 cases on 27 Dec, all of which were imported.
Here’s a breakdown of the cases according to MOH:
- 1 Singapore Permanent Resident (PR) who came back from Ukraine
- 4 Work Permit Holders from Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines (3 are domestic workers)
All were already serving SHN upon arrival and authorities tested them during their stay.
1 among 5 served SHN at Mandarin Orchard
One of the 4 Work Permit holders served SHN at Mandarin Orchard Singapore.
She had undergone a swab test on 19 and 21 Dec. Both results came back negative.
Unfortunately, results for her 3rd swab test on 24 Dec – at the end of her SHN – returned positive.
MOH authorities are also assessing if she could be linked to the 13 cases. You can read the full details here.
Stay vigilant even in Phase 3
Phase 3 begins today, more people will be allowed to gather in slightly larger groups, especially when going shopping and dining out.
Do remember that as we’re still in the middle of a pandemic, being socially responsible is still the way to go to ensure that community cases will not spike.
So mask up, practise good hygiene, and try your best to keep a safe distance from others.
