There were 45 new COVID-19 cases reported in Singapore on Thursday. Of these, 44 were imported, with one in the community.
The sole community case is a 32-year-old Singaporean man who works as a para-veterinarian with the Singapore Police Force’s K-9 Unit.
His job mainly involves tele-consultations with dog handlers. The case is currently unlinked and his serological test result has come back negative, which indicates that this is likely a current infection, said MOH.
