KUALA LUMPUR, May 25 — On Sunday, Singapore’s health ministry reported 548 new Covid-19 cases, bringing up its total number of reported infections to 31,616. 994 individuals have been discharged, making the total number of those fully recovered and released from hospitals or community isolation facilities reaching almost 15,000.

There are a total of 69 active clusters. However, for the first time in six weeks, no new cluster was identified.

690 have been hospitalised with 8 needing intensive care. The latter number is a new low since the start of Singapore’s “circuit breaker” period.

There have been 23 related deaths so far.

More than 16,000 cases have only had mild symptoms or considered clinical well despite testing positive. They have been isolated and cared for at community facilities.

The majority of new cases continue to be foreign workers living in dormitory settings. Three are Singaporeans or Permanent Residents.

Over the past couple of weeks, the number of Covid-19 patients discharged daily continues to exceed new patients. However, the Straits Times reported that the average number of new daily community cases has risen in the past week compared to the week before.

Singapore is currently under circuit breaker conditions which is expected to end in June 2.
