Five of the community COVID-19 cases reported on Sunday were linked to a group at Changi General Hospital (CGH), bringing the total number of patients in the group to 10.
However, the authority already quarantined four of the new cases and one who detected through surveillance.
Two of the quarantined cases were a 58-year-old homemaker and a 16-year-old Republic Polytechnic student. Both were family members and household contacts from previously reported cases.
The student was last on campus on June 1 and received her first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine on June 16. The 58-year-old woman received the first dose of it on June 2.

The last case was that of a 69-year-old woman who works as a health assistant at CGH. She was last at work on June 21 and developed body aches on June 24. She tried medical treatment at a polyclinic the same day, but she did not test for COVID-19.
The woman subsequently developed a fever and sore throat on the night of June 25. Therefore, she tried medical treatment at a local general medicine clinic, where they suggested her for a COVID-19 test.
She sought medical treatment at CGH on June 26, and this time she tested for COVID-19. Her report came positive for Covid-19.
