SINGAPORE - Bugis Street, Bugis+, ICA Building and Bedok Point's Challenger outlet are among the new places visited by Covid-19 patients while they were still infectious, the Ministry of Health (MOH) said on Saturday (July 11).

Several food centres were listed too: Geylang Serai Market and Food Centre, Bukit Panjang Hawker Centre and Market, and the Block 16 Bedok South Market and Food Centre.

The ministry provides the list, found on MOH's website, to get those who were at these places to monitor their health closely for two weeks from the date of their visit.

MOH said that close contacts would already have been notified and that there is no need to avoid these places as they would have been cleaned if needed.

MOH also confirmed 170 new coronavirus cases as of Saturday noon, taking Singapore's total to 45,783.

They include 24 community cases, comprising seven Singaporeans, six work pass holders and 11 work permit holders.

One of them is a nine-year-old boy who went to Madrasah Wak Tanjong Al-Islamiah, and is linked to a 40-year-old man who was announced to have Covid-19 on Friday. Both are Singaporeans.

MOH also said on Saturday that the average number of new cases in the community per day has increased to 19 in the past week, from nine in the week before that.

The average number of unlinked cases in the community per day has increased to nine in the past week, from five in the week before that.

 
 
 

There is also one imported case, an Indian national who returned to Singapore from India on July 6.

The work pass holder was placed on a 14-day stay-home notice upon arrival here, and was tested while serving her notice.

Migrant workers living in dormitories make up the remaining 145 new cases.

A new Covid-19 cluster was also announced, with four cases at a dormitory at 53L Tuas South Avenue 1.
