According to media reports, about 800 migrant workers have been newly quarantined after a Covid-19 case was discovered in a cleared dormitory.

The quarantined workers are among about 22,800 who are still serving out their quarantine period. "These workers will be tested when their quarantine ends, and we expect the case counts to remain high in the coming days, before tapering down thereafter," Ministry of Health (MOH) said.
