A 33-year-old permanent resident linked to a previous imported case was the sole Covid-19 case in the community confirmed yesterday.
She was one of 313 new coronavirus cases reported by the Ministry of Health (MOH), taking Singapore's total to 52,825.
She had been in contact with a previous imported case who had travelled to India, MOH said.
This previous case was a 13-year-old boy, who is also a PR. He had been asymptomatic but was confirmed to have the virus on July 30.
As he was a minor who had been placed on stay-home notice (SHN) upon his arrival in Singapore on July 19, she had requested to be isolated at the same dedicated SHN facility with him.
She first became symptomatic during isolation on July 28, and was confirmed to have Covid-19 yesterday.
There were also five imported cases who had been placed on stay-home notices upon arrival in Singapore.
Two are work pass holders currently employed in Singapore who had arrived from India separately on July 19 and 21.
Another two are dependant's pass holders who arrived from Japan and India on July 21.
The remaining case is a student's pass holder who arrived from Indonesia on July 19.
