The Ministry of Health has reported 422 new COVID-19 cases in Singapore as of 12 pm on June 11. This takes the nation’s tally of infections to 39,387.
Of the new cases, the vast majority are work permit holders residing in foreign worker dormitories.
There are also five cases in the community – of these, one is a Singaporean and four are Work Pass holders.
All four Work Pass/Work Permit holders are asymptomatic but had been detected due to our proactive screening. Amon them, one was tested as he works as a security guard at a dormitory at Tampines Street 62. Another was swabbed as part of our efforts to screen workers in essential services.
The other two cases are housemates of previously confirmed cases, and had already been quarantined earlier. They were swabbed during quarantine to verify their status.
Epidemiological investigations are ongoing for the Singaporean case.
Meanwhile, 754 more cases of COVID-19 infection have been discharged from hospitals or community isolation facilities.
