The Ministry of Health (MOH) confirmed seven new COVID-19 cases in Singapore as of Tuesday (27 October) noon, taking its total case count to 57,980.

There is one new case of locally-transmitted COVID-19 infection.

“Based on our investigations so far, the case is in the community, and there are no new cases in the dormitories,” said the ministry.

“In addition, there are six imported cases, who had all been placed on Stay-Home Notice or isolated upon arrival in Singapore.”

More details will be provided later at night, said the MOH.

With 21 more patients discharged from hospitals or community isolation facilities on Monday, 57,879 cases or 99.8 per cent of the total have fully recovered from the infection.

Most of the 43 hospitalised cases are stable or improving, while none is in critical condition in the intensive care unit.
