The Ministry of Health (MOH) has preliminarily confirmed an additional 322 cases of COVID-19 infection in Singapore as of Monday afternoon (13 July), bring the total to 46,283.

The vast majority of the cases are work permit holders residing in foreign worker dormitories.

There are 11 cases in the community, of whom two are Singaporeans/ permanent residents and nine are work pass holders. In addition, there are five imported cases who had been placed on Stay-Home Notice upon arrival in Singapore.

“The higher number of cases today is mainly due to fewer tests being conducted by the COVID-19 testing laboratories over the public holiday and weekend on 10 July and 11 July, with the backlog of samples being cleared from 12 July. The number of cases reported for 9 July and before were not affected,” said the MOH, which will provide more details later in the day.
