SINGAPORE – There were 18 new coronavirus cases confirmed as of noon on Thursday (September 17th), bringing the total in Singapore to 57,532.

This is the lowest daily figure since March 16, which had 17 cases.

Thursday’s new cases include a community case of a work permit holder, the Ministry of Health (MoH) said.

There were also two imported cases, which were placed on home notices upon arrival in Singapore.

On Wednesday, the MoH reported that the People’s Park Complex and the People’s Park Center were visited by patients with Covid-19 while they were infectious.

Shopping malls were added to a list of places visited by community cases during their infectious period. The visits took place on Sunday.

Two new cases in the community were reported on Wednesday. Both patients are work permit holders and were discovered by routine testing of workers in the construction, marine and process sectors who stay outside dormitories. They came out positive on Tuesday.

Two new imported cases were also announced on Wednesday. Both arrived from India. One is a 50-year-old Singaporean woman who came back last Saturday and came out positive on Wednesday. The other is a two-year-old boy, an Indian citizen and a long-term visa holder, who came out positive on Tuesday. He arrived here on September 3rd.

Both patients were placed on 14-day stay-at-home announcements upon arrival and tested while serving their announcements at dedicated facilities.

Migrant workers in dormitories made up 23 of the 27 new patients announced Wednesday.

The MoH said it removed a case from the case after further investigation. The patient, identified as Case 57,107, came out negative twice after a positive initial test result.

Investigations by laboratory experts and an expert panel assessed that his first test result was a false positive result, the MoH said. He added that all necessary public health actions had been taken earlier and neither the patient nor his contacts were exposed to the risk of infection due to the initial classification.

The average number of new daily cases in the community within a week has dropped from two cases two weeks ago to one in the past week.

The number of unrelated cases in the community within a week has also decreased from a daily average of one case to less than one for the same period.

With 71 patients released on Wednesday, 56,940 have fully recovered from the disease.

A total of 42 patients remained in hospital Wednesday without any in intensive care and 490 were recovering in community settings.

Singapore has had 27 deaths from complications of Covid-19, while 15 that have tested positive have died from other causes.

Globally, the outbreak of the virus, which began in December last year, has infected more than 30 million people. More than 944,000 people have died.
