We finally had a good news yesterday: there wasn’t any unlinked case.

Out of the 18 cases reported on 5 June 2021, 13 of them were community cases and they were all linked to previously confirmed cases.

It’s goody because two days ago, there was only one unlinked case reported (the afternoon report indicated two but MOH managed to link one of them to a previously confirmed cases that night), which means the number of unlinked cases has dropped by quite a lot since we started to dabao our food daily.

The number of new cases in the community has decreased from 138 cases in the week before to 129 cases in the past week. The number of unlinked cases in the community has remained stable at 20 cases per week in the past 2 weeks.
