Labelled as case 58757, the senior citizen who is a short-term visit pass holder has been isolated upon arrival in Singapore, it said in its full data released late last night.
“Case 58757 is a caregiver to an individual who was already receiving medical care in Singapore and had returned for further treatment,” said the ministry.
The man and nine other imported cases were all asymptomatic who were detected from its proactive screening and surveillance, it said.
