S’pore Reports 259 New Covid-19 Cases On 4 Sep, Highest Since Aug 2020

This is the highest daily figure Singapore has confirmed since 6 Aug 2020. With 116 unlinked cases, this is also the highest ever total reported so far.



Here’s a gist of MOH’s late-night update yesterday:

  • Changi General Hospital cluster now has 36 cases, including 14 staff who didn’t interact with patients
  • The bus interchange clusters have grown to 416 cases
  • Toa Payoh remains the largest bus interchange cluster with 130 cases

There are currently 62 active clusters.

National vaccination progress

As of 3 Sep, 81% of Singapore’s population – an estimated 4,328,804 people – has been fully vaccinated against Covid-19.

Meanwhile, MOH has administered a total of 8,765,482 doses of Covid-19 vaccines, covering 4,357,467 individuals. 83% of the population has received at least 1 dose.

Additionally, 170,144 doses of other WHO-approved vaccines have been administered to 86,019 people so far.

Clusters at bus interchanges & hospitals are a grave concern

Before reopening, Singapore authorities have preempted us to expect a rise in Covid-19 cases as more people can gather in public spaces.

Even though many of us are fully vaccinated by now, we should still exercise caution.

This means practising good personal hygiene every day and maintaining a safe distance from others when you head out.

And if you’re ever unwell, seek medical attention right away and minimise social interactions with others.
