Yesterday, we saw the lowest turnout in term of cases since 10 May 2021. With just 13 cases, 7 of which were community cases, we pray that things will remain this way.

Fortunately, they did.

As of 12pm today (5 Jun), the Ministry of Health (MOH) has preliminarily confirmed 18 new cases of COVID-19 infection.

13 are community cases, of which all are linked to previous cases.

The remaining 5 are imported cases.

This brings the total number of cases in Singapore to 62,176.

Based on yesterday’s figures, the number of new cases in the community has increased from 137 cases in the week before to 139 cases in the past week. The number of unlinked cases in the community has also increased from 21 cases in the week before to 23 cases in the past week.

There’s Only 1 Unlinked Case on 4 June & It’s a Hwa Chong Student

As of 12pm yesterday (4 June), the Ministry of Health (MOH) confirmed 13 new cases of COVID-19 infection.

7 are community cases, of which 1 is unlinked.

The remaining 6 are imported cases.

According to the Ministry of Health, the sole unlinked case yesterday, case 64029, is a 19-year-old male Singapore who studies at Hwa Chong Institution.

He last attended school on 18 May 2021.

On 2 June, he began going through a fever, sore throat and body aches, and sought treatment at a General Practitioner (GP) clinic on 3 June.

It was there that he underwent an antigen rapid test (ART) and a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test, with the former testing positive.

He was instantly isolated.

Later on, his PCR test would also test positive, though his serology test result remains unclear.

545 Active Cases

There are currently 229 confirmed cases who are still in hospital. Of these, most are stable or improving, and 2 are in critical condition in the intensive care unit.

316 are isolated and cared for at community facilities. These are those who have mild symptoms, or are clinically well but still test positive for COVID-19.

33 have passed away from complications due to COVID-19 infection.
