Here’s how these numbers compare with previous daily figures in the last 30 days.

Progress is promising, as the number of new community cases has dropped to 26 cases in the past week, compared to 95 in the week before.

The same goes for unlinked cases. While we recorded 17 cases in the week before, the number has now dropped to 2 cases in the past week.

2 clusters closed, 24 remain

MOH has also closed 2 Covid-19 clusters – linked to Case 63,931 and Tektronix – after having no new cases linked to them in the last 28 days.

24 active clusters remain in Singapore.

Follow Covid-19 rules & stay safe

The spread of the Delta variant in 98 countries is deeply concerning. As countries are fighting around the clock to ramp up vaccination efforts, we mustn’t rely on jabs alone to get us out of the woods.

We still have to wear our masks and practise safe distancing when we’re out. And above all, ensure we practise good personal hygiene.
