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 is all Omicron cases.

The confirmed cases are now a total of cases tested via PCR test and GP-Protocol 2 cases.

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

Weekly infection growth rate

The weekly infection growth rate is now at 2.02, 0.22 lesser than what was reported on Saturday when it was at 2.24.

This rate refers to the ratio of community cases of the past week as compared to the week before.

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

Total toll

Zero fatalities reported today brings the death toll in Singapore at 854 and the total number of cases since the start of the pandemic is now at 348,330.
