Singapore Uncovers Small Covid Cluster, First Since March 25

4 月 21, 2021World News

Singapore’s latest community case of Covid-19 infection widened a new cluster in the city state to four patients, according to the health ministry.

The lone reported community case that added to this cluster is a 44 year-old male Papua New Guinea citizen, with a short-term visit pass, who arrived from Australia on March 25 for a work project, the ministry said in a statement on Wednesday. The linked spread of Covid-19 is the first after the ministry’s announcement on March 25 that there were no open clusters of infections.

Singapore has largely contained the pandemic through aggressive contact tracing, mandatory masks and social distancing, and tightening border controls. It’s averaging two new cases in the community per week the last two weeks, according to the Ministry of Health.

The city-state also has one of the best vaccination rates in Asia per capita, with nearly 20% of the local population having received their first dose of either Pfizer or Moderna’s vaccines according to data compiled by Bloomberg’s global vaccine tracker.
