Migrant workers living in dormitories make up the vast majority of the other cases.More details will be announced on Friday night.On Thursday, MOH said it had placed 58 households in Block 111, Tampines Street 11 under active phone surveillance and was facilitating Covid-19 testing for them and their visitors.
This was a precautionary measure after the ministry detected nine confirmed coronavirus cases from two households in the block.As the households and visitors are not close contacts of the confirmed cases, they have a low risk of being infected, said MOH.
Of the 85 tests that have been completed so far, all the results have come back negative, the ministry said on Friday.On Thursday, MOH also announced that West Mall, Paya Lebar Square and IMM were added as locations visited by Covid-19 patients.A patient also visited Fu Chan Coffee Shop at Block 145 Teck Whye Avenue while infectious.
The ministry advised those who were at these places to monitor their health closely for two weeks from the date of their visit.The full list of locations and the times that the patients were there can be found on MOH's website.MOH also said on Thursday that a Filipino national who returned from Britain on June 20 tested positive for Covid-19 on Tuesday, while she was serving her stay-home notice.
The 36-year-old work pass holder was among 188 new coronavirus cases confirmed by the ministry on Thursday.Of the new cases then, 10 were from the community, comprising seven Singaporeans, one permanent resident and two work permit holders.Two of the Singaporeans and the permanent resident were identified as contacts of previously confirmed cases and were quarantined earlier.
Another three cases were detected by MOH's proactive surveillance of people deployed to front-line Covid-19 operations, even though they are asymptomatic.Epidemiological investigations are being done for the remaining two Singaporean patients.The two work permit holders had been identified as contacts of previously confirmed cases, and had already been quarantined.
Migrant workers staying in dormitories made up the remaining 177 new cases on Thursday.The MOH also announced two new clusters in dormitories at 7 Gambas Crescent and 17 Tuas View Close.Overall, the number of new cases in the community has increased to an average of nine per day in the past week, from an average of four cases per day in the week before that.
The number of unlinked cases in the community has also increased to an average of four per day in the past week, from an average of two cases per day in the week before.Singapore has had 26 deaths from Covid-19 complications, while 12 who tested positive have died of other causes.
