Today marks the first day where MOH has stopped reporting separately about Omicron variant cases and have included it inside with the total case count.

This is because the bulk of infections now are all Omicron cases.

MOH will also start to report on confirmed cases via PCR test and GP-Protocol 2 cases.

GP-Protocol 2 cases refers to individuals who are well but test positive, or have been diagnosed to by a doctor to have mild conditions.

This will be backdated to 6 January 2022 and therefore there will be a drastic increase in the daily case count.

A rate above 1 indicates that weekly cases are on the rise.

One fatality reported today brings the death toll in Singapore at 846 and the total number of cases since the start of the pandemic is now at 307,813.
