The Ministry of Health (MOH) has confirmed 125 new cases of Covid-19 in Singapore on Sunday (Jul. 25).
This brings the total number of cases in Singapore to 64,179.
117 new locally-transmitted cases
There are 117 cases of locally-transmitted Covid-19 infection on Jul. 25, with 79 linked and 38 unlinked.
Of the 79 linked cases, 43 have already been placed on quarantine, while 36 were detected through surveillance.
46 of these are linked to the Jurong Fishery Port cluster, while five belong to the KTV cluster.
Amongst the cases are two seniors above 70 years old who are unvaccinated or partially vaccinated. They are at risk of serious illness, said the ministry.
There are eight imported cases, who have already been placed on Stay-Home Notice (SHN) or isolated upon arrival in Singapore.
Four were detected upon arrival in Singapore, while four developed the illness during SHN or isolation.
Increase in community cases
Overall, the number of new cases in the community has increased from 324 cases in the week before to 1,056 cases in the past week.
MOH said the country is likely to continue to see high number of cases in the coming days as the ministry steps up efforts to detect them to contain their spread in the community.
The number of unlinked cases in the community has also increased from 24 cases in the week before to 136 cases in the past week.
The seven-day moving average number of all linked community cases and all unlinked community cases are 131.4 and 19.4 respectively.
25 active clusters
In total, there are currently 25 active clusters, ranging between three and 792 infections.
Two new clusters were added to the list today, involving those linked to Case 65893 and those linked to Case 65846.
MOH has also been monitoring existing clusters for any further transmission.
As there have been no more cases linked to the 115 Bukit Merah View Market & Food Centre, 119 Bukit Merah View and Case 64394 clusters for the past two incubation periods (i.e. 28 days), the clusters have now been closed.
Condition of hospitalised cases
524 cases are currently warded in hospital. Most are well and under observation.
There are currently 12 cases of serious illness requiring oxygen supplementation, and two in critical condition in the intensive care unit (ICU).
None amongst these 14 cases is fully vaccinated.
Seven seniors above 60 years, who are completely unvaccinated or partially vaccinated, have fallen very ill, said MOH.
There is continuing evidence that vaccination helps to prevent serious disease when one gets infected, MOH added.
Over the last 28 days, 15 local cases required oxygen supplementation, were admitted to ICU or passed away. Six were unvaccinated, while nine were partially vaccinated, and none was fully vaccinated.
Progress of vaccination programme
As of July 24, the total number of doses of Covid-19 vaccines administered was 7,130,781, covering 4,230,379 individuals.
