SINGAPORE: A 69-year-old Singaporean man died from COVID-19 complications on Wednesday (Aug 11), becoming the sixth fatality from the disease in August.

The man, identified as Case 66910, was not vaccinated against COVID-19. He had a history of stroke, diabetes mellitus, hypertension and hyperlipidaemia, said the Ministry of Health (MOH).He developed symptoms on Jul 28. A day later, he was admitted to Tan Tock Seng Hospital, where he tested positive for COVID-19.

 

A total of 43 people in Singapore have died due to complications from COVID-19.

 

61 LOCALLY TRANSMITTED CASES
Singapore reported 61 new locally transmitted COVID-19 infections as of noon on Wednesday, including 17 with no links to previous cases.

Thirty-three infections were linked to previous cases and had been placed on quarantine. Another 11 linked infections were detected through surveillance testing, said MOH.

 

Among the new cases, three were people above the age of 70 who were unvaccinated or partially vaccinated, and at risk of serious illness, said MOH. There were two imported cases, both detected upon arrival, taking Singapore's daily count of new infections to 63.

THREE NEW CLUSTERS
Three new COVID-19 clusters were identified, including a cluster of four cases linked to Superland pre-school at Kreta Ayer Community Centre. MOH did not provide details on the other two new clusters.

Two more infections were linked to the cluster at Jurong Fishery Port/Hong Lim Market and Food Centre, bringing the size of the cluster to 1,151 cases. It remains the largest active cluster in Singapore.

Eight more cases were linked to the cluster at Westlite Juniper Dormitory, taking it to 47 infections.

There were 118 active clusters in Singapore as of Wednesday.Overall, the number of new cases in the community has decreased to 448 cases in the past week from 758 cases in the week before, said MOH.

The number of unlinked cases in the community also decreased to 129 cases in the past week from 227 cases in the week before.

EIGHT IN CRITICAL CONDITION
A total of 508 cases were warded in hospital. There were eight cases in critical condition in the intensive care unit and 35 cases of serious illness requiring oxygen supplementation.

Of the 43 cases, seven were fully vaccinated. Those who have fallen very ill included 36 people above the age of 60, of whom 29 were partially vaccinated or completely not vaccinated.

"There is continuing evidence that almost all fully-vaccinated individuals do not suffer serious disease when infected, unless if they had underlying medical conditions that made them more susceptible," said MOH.Over the last 28 days, the percentage of unvaccinated local cases who became severely ill or died was 8.7 per cent, while that for the fully vaccinated was 0.9 per cent.

72 PER CENT OF POPULATION FULLY VACCINATED
More than 8.1 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been administered under the national vaccination programme, with 3,936,162 people having completed the full vaccination regimen as of Tuesday.

In addition, 138,879 doses of other vaccines recognised in the World Health Organization’s Emergency Use Listing have been administered as of Tuesday, covering 82,406 people.

In total, about 72 per cent of Singapore's population has completed their full regimen or received two doses of COVID-19 vaccines, while 81 per cent has received at least one dose.
