A total of 41 new Covid-19 cases are tied to a growing cluster that has been linked to KTV outlets and nightclubs here, said the Health Ministry’s Director of Medical Services Kenneth Mak on Wednesday (July 14).

They include a 40-year-old passenger on board a Dream Cruises ship, who was initially identified as a close contact of a positive case.

The index case, a Vietnamese woman on a short-term visit pass, had gone to a doctor on Sunday (July 11) with symptoms of an acute respiratory infection.

Of today’s 41 cases, nine were already in quarantine while the rest were picked up through surveillance.

Health Minister Ong Ye Kung urged those who have visited KTV lounges and interacted hostesses to get tested, and added that the police will take action against the lounges and hostesses.
