The Ministry of Health (MOH) confirmed 13 new cases of Covid-19 in Singapore on June 10, 2021.

The total number of Covid-19 cases reported in Singapore is now 62,236.

Four of the new cases are locally transmitted.

Among the locally transmitted cases, two have been linked to previous cases. The remaining two cases are unlinked.

There are also nine imported cases, who had already been placed on Stay-Home Notice upon arrival in Singapore.

Seven of the imported cases are returning Singaporeans or Singapore Permanent Residents (PRs).

Amongst the new cases today, nine are asymptomatic, and were detected from MOH's proactive screening and surveillance, while four were symptomatic.

New locations visited by confirmed Covid-19 cases as of June 10

MOH regularly updates a list of public places visited by confirmed Covid-19 cases for more than 30 minutes while they were infectious.

Three new locations were added to the list on June 10:

  • St Leaven bakery at Takashimaya (May 27 to 31, 6:45am to 5pm)

  • Bukit Merah View Market & Hawker Centre (June 6 to 9, 6am to 2pm)

Those who had been identified as close contacts of confirmed cases would already have been notified by MOH.

As a precautionary measure, visitors to 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.

Individuals may access the SafeEntry Location Matching Self-Check service via the TraceTogether App, SingPass Mobile, or this website to check whether they were at these locations during the specified timings, based on their own SafeEntry records.

There is no need to avoid places where confirmed cases of Covid-19 have been, said MOH.

The National Environment Agency will engage the management of affected premises to provide guidance on cleaning and disinfection.
