She is Case 58148, a Short Term Visit Pass holder who arrived from Vietnam and is currently unlinked.
She was allowed to enter as she’s a caregiver to her sibling who is currently under medical treatment in Singapore.
Upon touching down on 10 Oct, she tested negative. However, she tested positive in a second test when she started showing acute respiratory symptoms on 23 Oct.
In slightly better news, there were no infections reported living in workers’ dormitories yesterday (27 Oct).
But there were 6 imported ones, including 4 who are employed in Singapore. Here’s the breakdown according to MOH:
All of them are currently serving SHNs as mandated by the law.
Singapore is opening up essential travels to other countries, therefore it’s inevitable that there are more imported cases every day.
Despite this, authorities are actively testing and filtering out the virus at borders. Hopefully, risk of local transmission remains extremely low.
We have hope that Phase 3 will arrive swiftly as planned.
