The Ministry of Health has reported 94 new COVID-19 cases in Singapore as of 12 pm on August 28. This takes the national tally of confirmed infections to 56,666.
Among the new cases there are 4 infections in the community, all of whom are Singaporeans/ Permanent Residents, said the MOH in its preliminary release of figures.
Additionally, there are 10 imported cases, who had all been placed on Stay-Home Notice or isolated upon arrival in Singapore.
MOH also gave an update on the 80 cases residing in dormitories. Out of these 58 are from Sungei Tengah Lodge, who had all been placed on quarantine earlier, most of whom were tested during quarantine to determine their status, or picked up through Rostered Routine Testing.
“Following the detection of cases at Sungei Tengah Lodge, we had placed about 4,500 workers on quarantine, and tested about 3,000 of them so far. We expect the number of cases from the dormitory to continue to be high in the coming days as we complete testing of the remaining quarantined workers,” MOH said.
“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,” the ministry added.
