Those identified as close contacts of confirmed cases would have been notified by the Ministry of Health (MOH).

Individuals who were at these locations during the specified timings should monitor their health closely for 14 days from the date of their visit. They should see a doctor if symptoms of acute respiratory infection (such as cough, sore throat and runny nose) develop, as well as fever and loss of taste or smell, and inform the doctor of their exposure history.

There is no need to avoid places where there have been confirmed cases of COVID-19 as the National Environmental Agency has engaged the management of affected premises to provide guidance on cleaning and disinfection.

A total of 41 new COVID-19 cases were reported on Thursday, with 27 in the community.

Among the community cases is a KFC employee working at the outlet along Jalan Mas Puteh in Clementi. She tested positive for COVID-19 on May 19 and was last present at the outlet on May 17.

The KFC employee and five other community cases reported on Thursday are linked to an IT engineer at AbbVie Operations Singapore who first tested positive on May 16. The number of infections in this cluster has now been raised to nine.

There were six unlinked cases on Thursday, including a fourth student from Singapore Polytechnic. 

Singapore Polytechnic is expanding its COVID-19 testing for 2,000 more people. Classes have been moved online since May 18. 

Meanwhile, a 70-year-old man linked to the Tan Tock Seng Hospital cluster died from complications related to COVID-19 on Thursday. He had a history of lung cancer and atrial fibrillation. 

The last time Singapore recorded a COVID-19 fatality was on May 1, when an 88-year-old woman linked to the TTSH cluster died from complications related to COVID-19. Singapore’s COVID-19 death toll is now at 32.
