SINGAPORE - Seven new places were added to the Ministry of Health's (MOH) list of places visited by Covid-19 cases while they were infectious on Monday (June 8).

A confirmed case was at Tanglin Mall on May 29 from 1.05pm to 1.35pm.

While there is no need to avoid these places, those who have gone there should monitor their health closely for 14 days from the date they visited, said MOH. They should visit a doctor promptly if they develop fever, respiratory symptoms, or loss of taste or smell.

A total of 386 Covid-19 cases were announced, taking Singapore's total to 38,296.

There were two unlinked community cases - a 59-year-old work pass holder from Switzerland and a 26-year-old Singaporean.

Both men were symptomatic and had been tested after seeking medical treatment at public health preparedness clinics.

Four new clusters emerged in dormitories at 216 Tagore Lane, 9B Tech Park Crescent, 16 Tech Park Crescent and 115 Tuas View Walk 1.

The daily average for new community cases has increased to nine in the past week from three the week before, said the ministry.

In the same period, the number of unlinked cases has also increased, from an average of two cases per day in the week before to an average of four per day in the past week.

Another 482 patients were discharged yesterday, bringing the total number of patients who have recovered to 25,359.

 
 
 

Currently, 269 patients are still in hospital, with four in critical condition in the intensive care unit. Another 12,634 are isolated and cared for at community facilities, which are for those with mild symptoms or who are clinically well but still test positive for Covid-19.

Singapore has seen 25 deaths from Covid-19. Nine who have tested positive have died of other causes.

Globally, the virus outbreak, which began in December last year, has infected more than seven million people. More than 406,000 people have died.
