The MOH added that the woman’s case may be reclassified as an imported case pending the results of her serology test.

“Should her serology test come back positive, and epidemiological investigations assess that this is a past infection, we will reclassify this as an imported case,” it said.

It also added that the patient had travelled to India on Nov 30, and took a pre-departure test in India on Jan 4 before her flight back to Singapore where she tested negative for Covid-19.

On Wednesday (Feb 3), the MOH reported 17 imported cases, taking Singapore’s total to 59,602.
