There are 614 cases reported today.

Out of today’s cases, 4 are Singaporeans or Singapore PRs.
A majority of the cases are still work permit holders in dormitories.
On average, based on yesterday’s numbers, the number of new cases in the community has decreased, from an average of 7 cases per day in the week before, to an average of 6 per day in the past week. The number of unlinked cases in the community has remained stable at an average of 2 per day in the past two weeks.
