3 Covid-19 community cases on 5 Sep

Among the 3 community infections, 1 of them is Singaporean while the other 2 are Work Pass holders.

There were no community infections yesterday.

Overall new community cases have remained at around 3 this week, and unlinked cases at 2.

This comes as more cases are detected after doctors diagnose cases with acute respiratory infection.

2 imported cases

MOH also reported 2 imported cases, who were placed on Stay-Home Notice (SHN) upon arrival in Singapore.

Yesterday, there were 3 imported cases, including 1 Short-Term Visit Pass holder who arrived from India.

He was allowed in as his spouse is seeking treatment in Singapore.

They were also put on SHN upon arrival.

The 3 cases either worked at the shop or visited between 15-18 Aug.

All of them tested negative, thankfully.
