On Sunday, Singapore reported just 3 new coronavirus cases, all imported. There were no community transmitted infections for the fifth day.
The three imported new cases were all asymptomatic, and have been placed in strict quarantine. Two of which are Singapore permanent residents that just returned from India, while the other case was a short term visit pass holder from Italy.
There are only 41 active cases in the country. The success in curbing the spread of the virus and reduction of the cases to single digits is attributed to aggressive testing for early detection, combined with efficient contact tracing. Singapore have also employed bluetooth contact-tracing tokens, where every citizen in the country must wear.
As of Sunday, Singapore reported a total of 58,119 cases and 28 deaths since the pandemic began.
