Singapore reported eight new COVID-19 cases among the community on Thursday.
Three locations within VivoCity and a supermarket at Raffles City were among 15 places visited by COVID-19 cases during their infectious period.
These locations, visited between Jul 9 and Jul 21, were the latest places added to the Ministry of Health’s (MOH) list on Thursday (Jul 23).
Other locations include Golden Mile Complex, Bukit Panjang Plaza, West Mall, Jurong Point and SAFRA Yishun.
The details for the locations are:
The list is updated by MOH on a rolling 14-day basis, or one incubation period, and as epidemiological investigations progress.
If you were at any of the locations during the specified timings, you should monitor their health closely for 14 days from your date of visit as a precautionary measure, MOH advised.
“They should see a doctor promptly if they develop symptoms of acute respiratory infection (such as cough, sore throat and runny nose), as well as fever and loss of taste or smell, and inform the doctor of their exposure history,” the ministry added.
Singapore reported 354 new COVID-19 cases on Thursday, including eight in the community.
MOH said that the number of new cases in the community has decreased, from an average of 12 cases per day in the week before, to an average of nine per day in the past week.
Meanwhile, authorities noted that “some complacency may be setting in”.
In a Facebook post on Jul 21, Minister of Environment and Water Resources Masagos Zulkifli wrote that the beaches at East Coast Park and Sentosa were extremely crowded over the previous weekend.
“Our Safe Distancing Ambassadors and Enforcement Officers encountered many groups comprising more than 10 people who were from extended families, or were friends congregating.
“A good number didn’t wear masks even when reminded saying they were eating or drinking. Extended exposure to one another without masks and in packed crowds place those involved and others around them at greater risk of contracting the COVID-19 virus,” he said.
The minister said that authorities will be stepping up their enforcement, while reminding everyone that COVID-19 “remains a threat”.
“We must continue to be socially responsible,” he said.
“I seek everyone’s cooperation in continuing to observe these safe distancing measures during Phase 2. Our Safe Distancing Ambassadors and Enforcement Officers will continue to walk the ground to advise members of the public to adhere to these measures, and will not hesitate to issue fines on violations.”
