SINGAPORE — The Ministry of Health (MOH) is investigating cases of COVID-19 infection among Vietnamese social hostesses who had frequented KTV lounges or clubs currently operating as food & beverage outlets, and their close social contacts.

In its daily COVID-19 report on Monday (12 July), MOH said it will be conducting special testing operations for all staff of Supreme KTV (Far East Shopping Centre), Empress KTV (Tanglin Shopping Centre) and Club Dolce (Balestier Point).

In addition, MOH will extend free COVID-19 testing to members of the public who had visited the three establishments and other KTV lounges or clubs operating as F&B outlets between 29 June and 12 July.

Similarly, the free testing will be extended to those who interacted with Vietnamese social hostesses in any setting between 29 June and 12 July.

Members of the public can refer to https://go.gov.sg/ktv-testing for details on the testing operations.

“All visitors to these premises and similar settings and those who had interacted with Vietnamese social hostesses are advised to monitor their health closely, and minimise social interactions as far as possible, for 14 days from their date of visit or interaction. They are encouraged to see a doctor immediately if they feel unwell,” MOH said.

On Monday, MOH confirmed 26 new COVID-19 cases in Singapore, taking the country's total case count to 62,718. Eight of them are domestic cases, of whom five are linked to previous infections. The remaining eighteen cases are imported.
