There are no cases in the community today. Yesterday (21 Sep) saw no community infections added either.

This is despite the fact that authorities are conducting active testing on essential workers in the community.

Covid-19 case removed from count after ‘borderline positive’ test

Case 57,679, a 30-year-old Singaporean male, initially tested ‘borderline positive’ for Covid-19.

However, 2 subsequent tests came back negative, while his household contacts were also swabbed and they tested negative too.

Lab experts and an experts panel thus concluded that his case was a false positive, and have thus removed him from the case count.

MOH confirmed that all public health measures were taken while he was re-tested.
