As of Monday noon (30 Nov), the Ministry of Health (MOH) has confirmed five new cases of COVID-19 infection.

There is one new case of locally transmitted COVID-19 infection.
All new cases today are asymptomatic and were detected from screening and surveillance.
“Based on our investigations so far, the case is in the community, and there are no new cases in the dormitories,” said MOH.
There is 1 case in the community today who is currently unlinked. Case 58425 is a Short-Term Visit Pass holder who was allowed entry into Singapore to visit his family members who are Singaporeans. He is asymptomatic and was detected when he went for a COVID-19 pre-departure test on 28 November before a scheduled trip to the US.
He was conveyed to the hospital when his test came back positive for COVID-19 infection on 29 November. His serological test result is also positive, which indicates likely past infection.
He had arrived in Singapore from Nepal on 1 November and was placed on 14-day SHN at a dedicated facility upon arrival in Singapore from 1 November to 15 November. He was tested negative for COVID-19 infection on 11 November while serving SHN. He subsequently stayed at a friend’s flat at Bishan Street 22, and visited his family staying at Yishun Avenue 6.
