As of 5 June 2020, 12pm, the Ministry of Health (MOH) has preliminarily confirmed an additional 261 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 are 11 cases in the community, of whom 6 are Singaporeans/Permanent Residents and 5 are Work Pass holders. The lower number of cases today is partly due to fewer swabs being conducted.
2. Amongst the 11 cases, 6 are linked to previously confirmed cases, and had already been placed on quarantine, and 1 is linked to a dormitory cluster. Epidemiological investigations are ongoing for the remaining 4.
3. 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.
