There were 1,239 new COVID-19 cases reported in Singapore on Tuesday (Nov 30), said the Ministry of Health (MOH).

Of the new infections, 1,193 were from the community and 530 of those infected were aged between 12 and 39.

Singapore also recorded 22 imported cases on Nov 30, the highest in a day since May 14.

No new clusters have been identified. MOH is closely monitoring two active clusters that have reported new cases — LC Nursing Home in Siglap and ECON Healthcare Nursing Home in Chai Chee.

There were eight COVID-19-related deaths reported on Nov 30. They were aged between 47 and 87 years old and all of them had underlying medical conditions that interfered with their recovery.

The national death toll now stands at 718.

Over the past day, 1,399 cases were discharged from the hospital. Currently, 1,113 cases remain warded in hospitals, with 216 cases requiring oxygen supplementation, and 78 cases remain in the Intensive Care Unit.

In the last 28 days, 60,166 cases have been recorded, of which 98.7 per cent had no or mild symptoms and 0.9 per cent have required oxygen supplementation.

MOH has also completed a periodic update of Singapore’s population numbers. The population has decreased slightly, as individuals who have died or returned to their home countries outnumbered new-borns and inflows. MOH has thus adjusted their vaccinated coverage figures accordingly.

As of Nov 29, 96 per cent of the eligible population are fully vaccinated or have received two doses. As a percentage of the total population, 86 per cent have received two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, 87 per cent have received at least one dose and 26 per cent have received their booster shots.
