There are currently 67 active clusters in Singapore.

National vaccination progress

As of 28 Aug, 80% of Singapore’s population – or roughly 4,302,996 people – has been fully vaccinated against Covid-19.

Meanwhile, MOH has administered a total of 8,684,484 doses of Covid-19 vaccines, covering 4,505,072 individuals. 83% of the population has received at least 1 dose.

Additionally, 165,981 doses of other WHO-approved vaccines have been administered to 85,557 people so far.

Follow Covid-19 rules & remain vigilant

Singapore’s Covid-19 case numbers are seeing a rising trend again after the detection of clusters at Bugis Junction, dormitories, and bus interchanges.

Even though we have one of the highest vaccination rates globally, we mustn’t let our guard down. History has taught us that it only takes a brief moment of complacency for cases to spread like wildfire again.

Now that we are free to head out and dine in again, let’s remain vigilant. Follow Covid-19 rules, and practise good personal hygiene.

More importantly, seek medical attention right away when you’re not feeling well.
