SINGAPORE: Singapore reported 910 new local COVID-19 infections as of noon on Monday (Sep 20), comprising 832 community cases and 78 dormitory residents.

Two patients also died on Sunday, bringing Singapore's total fatalities to 62.

One of the cases is an 84-year-old man who had been vaccinated against COVID-19.

The Singaporean was taken to Ng Teng Fong General Hospital on Sep 13 with symptoms and tested positive for COVID-19 on the same day, said the Ministry of Health (MOH).

"He had been vaccinated against COVID-19, and had a history of heart disease, hypertension and hyperlipidaemia which, together with his advanced age, made him more susceptible to severe illness," added the ministry.

The second case is an 85-year-old Singaporean who was partially vaccinated.

He tested positive for the disease on Sep 16 and was taken to Khoo Teck Puat Hospital two days later. He had no known medical conditions, added MOH.

Monday's new local cases included 230 seniors above the age of 60, said the Health Ministry.

There were also seven imported cases, taking the total number of new cases to 917.

HOSPITALISED CASES​


There were 1,055 patients warded in hospital, most of whom were well and under observation, said MOH.

Of these, 128 cases of serious illness required oxygen supplementation, and 18 were in critical condition in the intensive care unit (ICU).

Among those who fell very ill were 122 seniors above the age of 60.

Over the last 28 days, 98 per cent of the local cases were asymptomatic or had mild symptoms.

As of Monday, Singapore has reported a total of 78,721 COVID-19 cases and 62 deaths from the disease.

NEW COMMUNITY CARE FACILITIES​


MOH announced on Sunday that new community care facilities will be set up to provide clinical care to COVID-19 patients who are stable but have underlying conditions.

Patients who will be admitted to such facilities include those who have symptoms or are generally clinically-well but have underlying conditions that require a closer monitoring of their disease course.

MOH said this will augment Singapore's hospital capacity, so that only those who actually need close and specialised medical attention, such as oxygen supplementation and intensive care, receive their medical care in hospitals.

Health Minister Ong Ye Kung said that accident and emergency departments and general wards in hospitals are coming "under pressure" amid a wave of COVID-19 infections.

He added that MOH is encouraging younger, fully vaccinated people to recover from home.
