There were 38 new COVID-19 cases reported in Singapore on Thursday. Of these, 34 were imported, with four in the community.
MOH added that three more COVID-19 cases have now been linked to a cluster at BS Industrial & Construction Supply in Kallang, with the cluster now standing at seven cases.
The number of new cases in the community has increased from three in the week before to 21 in the past week.

This is in light of the recent uptick in community cases, and the increased intermingling expected during Chinese New Year.
