SINGAPORE - Twelve places, including 313 @ somerset, VivoCity and Bugis Junction, are among the new places on a list of venues which Covid-19 patients visited.

The ministry provides this list of locations that Covid-19 patients have visited for more than 30 minutes to get those who were at these places to monitor their health closely for two weeks from the date of their visit.

Those who were there at the same time should monitor their health closely for two weeks from the date of their visit.

It has 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.

The full list of locations and the times the patients were there can be found on MOH’s website.

MOH also said that among the five community cases announced on Thursday is a Singaporean man.

The 50-year-old man showed the onset of symptoms on June 19 and was confirmed to have the virus on Thursday. He was tested when he sought medical treatment.
