There are no cases in the community among the new infections, said the MOH in its statement.

There is one imported case – a Singaporean who returned to Singapore from India on August 24. He had been placed on 14-day Stay-Home Notice (SHN) upon arrival in Singapore, and was tested while serving SHN at a dedicated facility. 

On Monday, Singapore saw its lowest daily COVID-19 numbers in nearly six months with just 22 fresh cases, all of whom were asymptomatic.
