There were 3,397 new COVID-19 cases reported in Singapore on Tuesday (Nov 9), said the Ministry of Health (MOH).

Among the new cases, 3,222 infections were from the community and 1,563 of those infected were aged between 12 and 39. 

No new clusters have been identified, and MOH is closely monitoring four active clusters that reported new cases. These include the Institute of Mental Health, Acacia Home, Jenaris Home @ Pelangi Village and PCF Sparkletots @ Whampoa Block 85.

There were 12 COVID-19-related deaths reported on Nov 9. They were aged between 58 and 95 years old, and all but one unvaccinated individual had underlying medical conditions.

The national death toll now stands at 523.

MOH said that 2,834 cases were discharged from hospitals between Nov 8 and Nov 9. Currently, 1,700 cases remain warded in hospitals, with 300 cases requiring oxygen supplementation. There are 140 cases in the Intensive Care Unit that are unstable or in critical condition. 

In the last 28 days, 91,844 cases have been recorded, of which 98.7 per cent had no or mild symptoms, and 0.8 per cent have required oxygen supplementation.

About 85 per cent of the population are fully vaccinated, 86 per cent have received at least one dose and 18 per cent have received boosters.

From Nov 10, households of up to five fully vaccinated people will be allowed to dine in at F&B establishments. However, this does not include hawker centres and coffee shops, as comprehensive Vaccination-Differentiated Safe Management Measures (VDS) checks on diners cannot be carried out there. 

Team sports of up to 10 fully vaccinated people will also resume from Nov 10 onwards at selected ActiveSG sports centres and People’s Association community clubs (CCs). All participants must be fully vaccinated and will also be required to produce a valid negative pre-activity Antigen Rapid Test (ART) result at the venue.
