4 community infections, 3 unlinked

MOH also announced 4 Covid-19 community infections, with 3 of them unlinked as of now.

The remaining case is linked to a previous case and was asymptomatic, although his serological test came back positive.

This indicates a probable past infection.

Through active case finding, MOH found another case. Meanwhile, the last 2 cases reported acute respiratory infection to the doctor, and were tested based on that.

Community cases have gone down to just 2 a day this week, although this could easily increase any time.

No need to avoid places

MOH will have notified close contacts, of the cases who visited these locations.

However, as a precaution, you should monitor your health for 14 days from the day of visit and see a doctor if you feel unwell, as well as let them know about your exposure history.

There is no need to avoid these places as the management will have cleaned and disinfected them.

We wish all who tested positive for Covid-19 a speedy recovery.
