Singapore reports 42 new coronavirus cases, lowest daily count in 4.5 months
Singapore on Wednesday reported 42 new COVID-19 cases, its lowest daily count in about four and a half months.
The city-state went into a lockdown in mid-April after mass outbreaks in cramped migrant worker dormitories pushed its caseload to one of the highest in Asia.
Last week, it said it had cleared infections from all of the dormitories – housing around 300,000 workers – barring some blocks which continue to serve as isolation zones.
Of Wednesday’s cases – its lowest tally since March 29 – the majority were among those remaining workers serving quarantine.
