The Ministry of Health (MOH) reported 2,470 new cases of Covid-19 infection in Singapore on Nov. 1, as of 12pm.

There was a decrease in the number of cases reported today, down from 3,163 cases reported on Oct. 31, and the first time it has dipped below 3,000 since Oct. 18.

This could be due to fewer swab tests typically being done at public health preparedness clinics and polyclinics over the weekend.
