21 Covid-19 Cases On 8 Apr
The Ministry of Health (MOH) confirmed as of 12pm on Thursday (8 Apr) that there are 21 new Covid-19 cases.
There are no new local Covid-19 infections, either in the community or in workers’ dorms.
The national tally now stands at 60,575.
21 Covid-19 cases on 8 Apr, all imported
MOH said that all of today’s cases are imported.
All of them were already on Stay-Home Notice (SHN), and were tested during their stay.
1 new community case on 7 Apr
Yesterday’s cases include 1 community infection, out of a total of 35 new cases.
34 cases were imported on 7 Apr.
The 1 community case is a 40-year-old domestic helper from Myanmar, who tested negative during her Stay-Home Notice on 23 Nov.
Her symptoms emerged on 2 Apr, consisting of a headache and shortness of breath.
She was tested and it came back positive, although a later test was negative.
Her serological test result was positive — indicative of a past infection.
However, as MOH is unable to deduce when she was infected, necessary public health actions are being taken as a precaution.
