With the new development, the tally for the Island-city is now 631 cases.

“All except one were returning residents and Long Term Pass holders,” it said in a statement here.

MOH said one of the imported cases involved a 30-year-old Malaysian man who is a Singapore Work Pass holder.

Meanwhile, 27 other cases are linked to clusters or previous cases while eight cases are currently unlinked, and contact tracing is ongoing, said the ministry.

It informed that PCF Sparkletots Preschool at Bedok North, and Dover Court International School at Dover Road, have been identified as new clusters in the republic.

The statement said five more cases of Covid-19 infection have been discharged from hospital, thus, in all, 160 have fully recovered.
