Three Filipino workers were identified as among the 65 newest confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Singapore, the Ministry of Health of the city-state announced yesterday.
 
This brings to 35 the total number of Filipinos infected in Singapore.
 
The announcement came as Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsein Loong orders stricter measures to contain the virus from April 7 to May 4. 

Classes in schools were suspended and work premises closed except for essential services like hospitals, supermarkets, banks, transport and utilities. Residents are also encouraged wearing facial masks.

The MOH did not identify the three OFWs but indicated all are work pass holders and have contacts with previously identified COVID-19 positive cases. 
 
Patient No. 1065 is a 36-year old male who is linked to Patient No. 737.
 
Patient No. 1075 is a 67-year old female who is suspected to have been infected from local transmission within the Wilby residences. 
 
Both Patient No. 1065 and 1075 were confirmed to have been infected with SAR-CoV2 on April 2. They are confined at National Centre for Infectious Diseases (NCID)
 
Patient No. 1086 is a 40-year old female who has links with four positive COVID-19 positive patients — patients 227, 348, 1029 an d 1087. She is confined at the National University Hospital.
 
The Philippine Embassy in Singapore said Thursday that there are 32 confirmed COVID-19 cases among the Filipino community in Singapore. Of the 32, six have already recovered and discharged from the hospital.
 
The Embassy advised Filipinos to stay in their homes and if they will gather, it should not be more than 10. Filipinos are also told not to go public places like Lucky Plaza, Little India, City Plaza and Peninsula Plaza.
 
“Paalisin ng MOM (Ministry of Manpower) ang mga grupong hindi sumusunod sa tamang bilang at paiigtingin nila ang inspeksyon sa mga lugar. Maaaring makansela ang work pass ng mga hindi sumusunod sa patakaran,” the Embassy said in its Facebook post.
 
The Philippine Embassy hotline is 9072 2797.
