Of these, most are stable or improving, and none is in the intensive care unit.

New locations visited by Covid-19 patients
MOH regularly updates a list of public places visited by confirmed cases for more than 30 minutes during their infectious period.
There were no new locations added to the list today.
This is the latest list of locations visited by confirmed cases within the last two weeks:
Those who had been identified as close contacts of confirmed cases would already have been notified by MOH.
As a precautionary measure, those who had been at these locations during the specified timings should monitor their health closely for 14 days from their date of visit.
They should see a doctor promptly if they develop symptoms of acute respiratory infection (such as cough, sore throat and runny nose), as well as fever and loss of taste or smell, and inform the doctor of their exposure history.
MOH also said that there is no need to avoid places where confirmed cases of Covid-19 have been. The National Environment Agency will engage the management of affected premises to provide guidance on cleaning and disinfection.
