Singapore is seeing a continued resurgence of Covid-19 clusters in migrant worker dormitories which had previously been declared cleared of the virus, although the risk of wider contagion appears to be small.
Epidemiological investigations and contact tracing data released on Sunday eveningshowed 25 newly or recently confirmed infections are linked as part of three new clusters at the dorms. That brings the number of dorm clusters found in the past week to 12, theStraits Times reported.
The number of daily new cases in the city-state have dwindled to just dozens, following a months-long national effort to test, isolate and treat the high-risk foreign worker community. Dorms housing the low-paid laborers that underpin Singapore’s construction and services sectors account fornearly 95% of the country’s 57,000 total confirmed infections, according to Ministry of Health data. At the start of lockdown measures in April, the dormitories housed more than 300,000 people.
