As of 19 June 2020, 12pm, the Ministry of Health (MOH) has preliminarily confirmed an additional 142 cases of COVID-19 infection in Singapore, the vast majority of whom are Work Permit holders residing in foreign worker dormitories. Based on our investigations so far, there is 1 case in the community involving a Prison inmate on Social Visit Pass, who had arrived in Singapore before the implementation of border measures. He had been segregated from the general inmate population since his admission to Changi Prison Complex on 6 June, and was tested positive for COVID-19. There are no Singaporean/ Permanent Resident cases.
2. We are still working through the details of the cases, and further updates will be shared via the MOH press release that will be issued tonight.
