The Ministry of Health (MOH) on Wednesday announced 74 new cases of Covid-19 in Singapore , taking the national total to 1,000. It is also the highest single-day spike of infections, the previous high being the 73 cases reported on March 25. Two new clusters of infections have also emerged: the Lee Ah Mooi Old Age Home at Thomson Lane and a dormitory located at 55 Sungei Kadut Loop. In its statement, the health ministry said that of the 74 new cases, 20 cases were imported with travel history to Australia, Europe, South America, countries in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations as well as other parts of Asia. Of the 54 local cases, 29 infections were linked to previous cases or clusters while the authorities have not yet established links for the other 25. To date, 245 patients have fully recovered from the Covid-19 infection and have been discharged from hospitals or community isolation facilities, including the five discharged on Wednesday. The ministry said that of the 457 patients who are still in hospital, most are stable or improving. Why so few Covid-19 infections in Singapore’s health workers? Twenty-four patients are in critical condition in the intensive care unit. It added that 291 people who are clinically well but still test positive for Covid-19 are isolated and cared for at Concord International Hospital, Mount Elizabeth Hospital, Gleneagles Hospital and the Community Isolation Facility at D’Resort NTUC. Three have died from complications of Covid-19 infection. The ministry said that contact tracing is underway for 115 locally transmitted cases to establish any links to previous cases or travel history to affected countries or regions.
