SINGAPORE, June 12 (The Straits Times/ANN): There were 21 new Covid-19 cases confirmed as at Saturday noon (June 12), including 12 in the community, five of which are unlinked cases.

The other five linked cases were detected through surveillance, said the Ministry of Health (MOH).

The remaining five community cases are currently unlinked.

In addition, there are nine imported cases, who had been placed on stay-home notice upon arrival in Singapore.

All nine are returning Singaporeans or permanent residents.

Saturday's tally takes Singapore's total to 62, 266. More details will be announced on Saturday night.

On Friday (June 11), MOH reported three Covid-19 cases in the community.

They were a 50-year-old woman who works as a cleaner in Raffles City Tower, a 57-year-old woman who works as a promoter at Guardian in Ion Orchard, and a 38-year-old crew member on a tugboat employed by Marina Offshore.

As at Friday, all three cases were unlinked.
