The Ministry of Health (MOH) has confirmed five new cases of Covid-19 in Singapore on Sunday (Dec. 27).

This brings the total number of cases to 58,524.

All five cases are imported, and have already been placed on Stay-Home Notice (SHN) upon arrival in Singapore.

Breakdown of cases

Amongst the new cases today, four are asymptomatic, and one was symptomatic.

Amongst the five imported cases, one (Case 58763) is a Singapore Permanent Resident who returned from Ukraine.

The remaining four are Work Permit holders who arrived from Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines, of whom 3 (Cases 58761, 58764 and 58765) are foreign domestic workers.

They had all already been placed on SHN upon arrival in Singapore and were tested while serving SHN.

Case 58762

Case 58762 served SHN at Mandarin Orchard Singapore before she was transferred to another dedicated facility on 20 December when MOH commenced investigations into 13 previously reported cases who had served SHN at Mandarin Orchard Singapore between October 22 and November 11, 2020.

She was swabbed on December 19 and 21 and her test results were negative for COVID-19 infection. Her swab on December 24 at the end of SHN came back positive, and she was conveyed to the hospital the next day.

A confirmatory test by the National Public Health Laboratory (NPHL) was also positive. However a second sample taken by NPHL on 26 December came back negative, and her serological test result has also come back negative.

Investigations are ongoing to assess if she could be linked to the 13 cases.
