The Ministry of Health (MOH) confirmed nine new Covid-19 cases in Singapore as of 12pm on June 8, 2021.
This brings the total number of cases to 62,219.
Three community cases, one dormitory case and five imported cases
There are four locally-transmitted cases in total, three in the community and one in the dormitories.
One of the three community cases is linked to previous cases, and has already been placed on quarantine.
The two other community cases, and the dormitory case, are all unlinked, making three unlinked cases in total.
MOH also reported that five of the cases are imported. They were all placed on Stay-Home Notice (SHN) upon arrival in Singapore.
Of these, two are returning Singaporeans or Singapore Permanent Residents.
Four new locations
MOH regularly updates a list of public places visited by confirmed Covid-19 cases for more than 30 minutes when they were infectious.
Four new locations were added to the list on June 8:
- Four Leaves at ION Orchard (visited from June 3 to June 6)
- Scarlett Supermarket at People's Park Complex
- Decathlon at The Centrepoint
- UNIQLO at Orchard Central
The new locations visited have been highlighted and can be found in the full list of locations visited by cases in the community during their infectious period in the past 14 days, as of June 8, below:
Those who had been identified as close contacts of confirmed cases would already have been notified by MOH.
As a precautionary measure, persons 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.
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.
