Singapore reports 3,174 new COVID-19 cases and 14 more deaths


SINGAPORE: Singapore reported 3,174 new COVID-19 cases as of noon on Monday (Oct 25) as 14 more people died from complications due to the virus.

The fatalities, who were aged between 60 and 93, had various underlying medical conditions. The Ministry of Health (MOH) did not specify what these conditions were.

This brings Singapore's death toll from the coronavirus to 329.

The number of new COVID-19 infections is a decrease from the daily count of 3,383 reported on Sunday.

Among Monday's cases, 3,165 infections are locally transmitted, comprising 2,843 in the community and 322 in migrant workers' dormitories.

Nine are imported cases, MOH said in its daily update released to media at about 11.30pm.

The weekly infection growth rate is 1.18 as of Monday. This refers to the ratio of community cases for the past week over the week before.

If the figure drops below 1, Singapore may ease some COVID-19 measures such as allowing household members to dine-in together, co-chair of the multi-ministry task force Lawrence Wong said on Saturday.

As of Monday, Singapore has reported a total of 175,818 COVID-19 cases since the start of the pandemic.



Authorities on Monday urged members of the public to only call 995 for "life-threatening emergencies" .

This will ensure those who require urgent care are able to receive it promptly, said MOH and the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF).

Life-threatening and emergency conditions include sudden onset of chest pain, breathlessness, drowsiness or confusion, sudden onset of limb or body weakness, difficulty in speech, or drooping of the face, severe bleeding from injuries, loss of consciousness, and unexplained jerking of the body or fits.

The prudent use of emergency medical services and emergency departments is important as Singapore learns to live with COVID-19, said the authorities.
