Overall, the number of new cases in the community has increased from 335 cases in the week before to 845 cases in the past week.

The number of unlinked cases in the community has also increased from 112 cases in the week before to 253 cases in the past week.

No new clusters were reported on Wednesday, while two have closed.

There are currently 68 active clusters in Singapore, ranging between three and 1,155 infections.

On vaccination efforts, 80 per cent of the population has completed their full regimen and received two doses of a Covid-19 vaccine, while 83 per cent has received at least one dose.

“There is continuing evidence that almost all fully-vaccinated individuals do not suffer serious disease when infected, unless if they had underlying medical conditions that made them more susceptible,” said MOH.
