Singapore's Ministry of Health (MOH) has confirmed an additional 876 cases of COVID-19 infection in the country as of 12pm on Sunday, May 10. This brings the national tally to 23,336.
One imported case was reported, and the patient had been placed on Stay-Home Notice upon arrival in Singapore, MOH said.
Of the new cases, 98% are linked to known clusters. Majority of them are foreign workers residing in dormitories.
MOH noted that the number of new cases from the testing of workers with acute respiratory infection (ARI) symptoms and their contacts remains stable. "But the number of daily cases continues to rise as we are also testing the workers who are well and asymptomatic, as part of our process to verify and test the status of every worker."
Meanwhile, there are only four cases reported in the local community, two of which are Singaporeans/Permanent Residents.
"The number of new cases in the community has decreased, from an average of 11 cases per day in the week before, to an average of 9 per day in the past week," MOH said.
