“Similar imported cases suspected of re- infection will be isolated and undergo repeat COVID-19 PCR tests to monitor the trend of their viral loads, to ensure that such cases are detected promptly,” it added.

This comes as the ministry announced earlier on Tuesday a slew of revised border measures, including stricter ones for travellers arriving from India, to take effect from 11.59pm on Thursday.

The US on the same day warned against travel to India, where authorities there had imposed tighter restrictions.

The MOH confirmed 14 new COVID-19 cases in Singapore on the same day, including one new case of locally transmitted infection who is a dormitory resident, taking the country’s total case count to 60,865.
