The Health Ministry announced yesterday that 41 people were infected with the Zika virus in the Aljunied Crescent-Sims Drive area. Today the Ministry announced that five more suspected cases have been discovered. The clinic which discovered Singapore’s first locally-transmitted Zika case referred these five cases to MOH. The five patients, including some foreign workers, were sent to the Communicable Diseases Centre (CDC) for further testing after having had their blood and urine samples taken.

If the 5 cases are confirmed, with the 41 cases announced in the past 2 days and the 1 case reported in May 2016, the number of Zika cases here would rise to 47.
