The Ministry of Health has reported 87 new COVID-19 cases in Singapore as of 12 pm on September 11. This takes the national tally of confirmed infections to 57,316.
There are no cases in the community among the new infections, according to the MOH’s preliminary release of figures.
There are 14 imported cases, who had all been placed on Stay-Home Notice upon arrival in Singapore.
Amongst the 73 cases residing in dormitories today, 33 are from Avery Lodge Dormitory, the majority of whom had been placed on quarantine earlier and were tested during quarantine to determine their status, MOH said.
“The remaining cases were detected through surveillance testing, such as our bi-weekly Rostered Routine Testing. This allows us to pick up cases in the dormitory early, including asymptomatic ones, so that we are able to ring-fence them quickly to prevent further transmission,” the ministry added.
MOH also said that they are still working through the details of the cases, and further updates will be shared via their press release later on Friday.
