SINGAPORE, February 25 — Five more patients who were infected by the Covid-19 coronavirus have been discharged from hospital today, bringing the total number of those who have recovered to 58, the Ministry of Health (MOH) said.

So far, there have been 91 reported cases of infected patients in Singapore and the latest one was confirmed to have the virus on February 22 but was announced by MOH today.

Case 91 is a 58-year-old Singaporean woman who did not go to China recently. She is among the five who have since been discharged from hospital, along with Case 77, a 35-year-old Singaporean man who was a contact of Case 50, the first DBS bank employee who was diagnosed on February 12.

The other three who recovered were cases 58, 62 and 81, who were part of the Grace Assembly of God cluster.

MOH said that Case 91 is married to Case 83, a 54-year-old Singaporean man, and both did not travel to China recently. Husband and wife are linked to the Life Church and Missions Singapore cluster.

On January 19, a married couple from Wuhan, China (cases 8 and 9) attended the church in Paya Lebar and came into contact with the Singaporean couple.

The Singaporean couple then went on to attend a Chinese New Year gathering on January 25 with Case 66, a 28-year-old Singaporean man who works at the Grace Assembly of God church.

Case 91 reported onset of symptoms on January 23 and had sought treatment at a general practitioner (GP) clinic on February 1, 6 and 10. As she had been identified as a contact of Case 66, she was referred by MOH to the National Centre for Infectious Diseases on February 18.

Test results came back positive for Covid-19 on February 22 afternoon.

Before she was warded, she had mostly stayed home on Rivervale Drive in Sengkang.
