Covid-19 cases in Singapore have reached over 10,000 since a whooping 1,016 individuals tested positive today (22nd April), according to the Star.

The total tally, which now resides at 10,141 cases, consists of 15 Singaporeans and permanent residents while the rest are foreign workers living in dormitories. While the ministry has yet to provide further details about the new cases, an update is expected to be given tonight.

Recently, the nation has seen various spikes in Covid-19 cases, driven by an outbreak amongst foreign workers residing in dormitories and the aggressive testing done by authorities.

While Prime Minister, Lee Hsien Loong, said the number of Covid-19 cases in the community has fallen in recent days, the number of unlinked cases doesn’t look to be decreasing any time soon, suggesting that there might be a “larger, hidden reservoir” of cases. This comes fresh after Lee announced that Singapore’s Circuit Breaker is to be extended to 1st June.
