Authorities identified 2 of them who are linked to previous cases or clusters.

The remaining 5 are currently unlinked, and were detected through screening of workers in essential services living outside the dormitories.

No need to avoid places visited by Covid-19 patients

MOH assured that they have already informed those who are identified as close contacts of confirmed cases.

For precaution, those who have visited the aforementioned locations during the specified timings must monitor their health closely for 14 days from their date of visit.

However, there is no need to avoid places where Covid-19 patients had visited, says MOH. The National Environment Agency (NEA) will provide guidance on cleaning and disinfection to management of the affected premises.

Covid-19 is still an ongoing threat, so do try to stay home as much you can. And when you head out, remember to be socially responsible, and keep a safe distance from others.
