Singapore reported seven new COVID-19 cases on Saturday (Oct 10), including one in the community.

The new infections take the total number of cases in the country to 57,866.

The one community case reported on Saturday is a family member of previously confirmed cases, said the Ministry of Health (MOH) in its evening update.

The 41-year-old man, who is a Singapore permanent resident, was identified as a contact of two previous cases and had been placed on quarantine earlier.

The two cases (cases 57890 and 57945) had arrived from Indonesia on Sep 25 and had been granted permission to serve their stay-home notice at home as one of them is a two-month old infant, said the ministry.

“As a precautionary measure, (the man) case 58015 was placed on stay-home notice as well due to his exposure to them, even though he had not travelled with his family,” said MOH.
