MOH stated that it had updated Singapore's overall population numbers due to outflows of migrants and deaths, which meant that the total population slightly decreased.

This therefore has an effect on the vaccination coverage percentages.

Received at least one dose: 87 per cent

Received booster shot: 26 per cent

Percentage of eligible population vaccinated: 96 per cent

MOH is closely monitoring two large clusters with new cases, which have already been ring-fenced through tracing, testing and isolation.
