Media Release: Ministry of Health

23 community cases of COVID-19; one new case in managed isolation; more than 64,000 vaccines administered yesterday

There is a slight increase in today’s numbers. As detailed previously, some volatility is likely at this stage as some changes are expected in the numbers as day 5 and day 12 tests for contacts of cases are due, and further investigations of any new unlinked cases are done.

This does serve as a strong reminder of the importance of following the COVID-19 Alert Level rules wherever you are, and to get tested if you have any symptoms or have been at a location of interest at the specified times.
