MOH should reveal the results of its analysis - which Covid variants (India, UK etc) were found to have infected even those who are vaccinated.
New Changi Airport T3 cleaner cluster: 4 new cases, 8 in total

A new cluster linked to eight cases was announced by the MOH on Sunday, of whom four were identified as infected with COVID-19 on the same day.

The "Case 62873" cluster, is named after an 88-year-old Singaporean man who is employed by Ramky Cleantech Services as a cleaner deployed at Changi Airport Terminal 3. The fully-vaccinated man was confirmed to have COVID-19 on 5 May.

All eight cases linked to the new cluster, the 11th active cluster in Singapore, work at Changi Airport Terminal 1 or Terminal 3.

T3 auxiliary police officer (fully vaccinated, prelim. positive for Indian variant)

He is a 57-year-old Singaporean man who is employed by Certis Cisco as an auxiliary police officer at Changi Airport Terminal 3. His job entails maintaining crowd control and checking of travellers’ documents. The man had not gone to work since the onset of his symptoms.

He had received his first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine on 15 February, and the second dose on 8 March. The man has tested preliminarily positive for the Indian variant – or B1617 – and is pending further confirmatory tests.

The man had developed a cough on 7 May and sought medical treatment at a general practitioner clinic on the same day, where he was tested for COVID-19. His test result came back positive the next day, and he was conveyed in an ambulance to Alexandra Hospital.

His earlier tests under the rostered routine testing – the last being on 2 May – were all negative for COVID-19. His serological test result is negative, said the MOH.

T3 cleaner (prelim. positive for Indian variant)

She is a 51-year-old female work permit holder who is also employed by Ramky Cleantech Services as a cleaner deployed at Changi Airport Terminal 3. The woman, a colleague of the 88-year-old man, had last gone to work on 3 May.

She has tested preliminarily positive for the Indian variant – or B1617 – and is pending further confirmatory tests.

The woman had been tested on 5 May as part of the rostered routine testing regime but her pooled test result came back inconclusive, and she was tested again on 7 May.

On the same day, as she had been identified as a colleague of the older man, she was contacted by the MOH and placed on phone surveillance.

"That night, she developed a cough and headache. On 8 May, she sought medical treatment at a polyclinic," said the MOH, adding that her test result came back positive for COVID-19 on the same day and she was conveyed in an ambulance to Gleneagles Hospital.

Her earlier tests under the rostered routine testing – the last being on 21 April – were all negative for COVID-19. Her serology test result is negative.

T3 trolley handler and cleaner (fully vaccinated)

He is a 63-year-old Singaporean man who is also employed by Ramky Cleantech Services as a trolley handler and cleaner deployed at Changi Airport Terminal 3, and a colleague of the 88-year-old man.

The man had received his first dose of COVID-19 vaccine on 22 January, and the second dose on 15 February.

He developed a sore throat on 3 May and a cough on 6 May but did not seek medical treatment. On 8 May, he developed a runny nose and sought medical treatment at a general [ractitioner clinic, where he was tested for COVID-19.

As he had been identified as a colleague of the 88-year-old man, he was contacted by the MOH and placed on quarantine on the same day.

The man reported his symptoms and was conveyed to a hospital for assessment. His test result came back positive for COVID-19 on 9 May and he was conveyed in an ambulance to Sengkang General Hospital. His earlier tests under the rostered routine testing – the last being on 12 April – were all negative for COVID-19. His serology test result is pending, said the MOH.

T3 SATS passenger escort

He is a 66-year-old Singaporean man who received his first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine on 29 January, and the second dose on 19 February.

He developed a runny nose and sore throat on 8 May and sought medical treatment at a general practitioner clinic on the same day, where he was tested for COVID-19. His test result came back positive the next day. His serological test result is pending, said the MOH.

"In view of the recent cases detected at Changi Airport Terminal 1 and Terminal 3, the MOH has commenced a special COVID-19 testing operations for all workers in Changi Airport Terminals 1 and 3, as well as Jewel Changi Airport," said the MOH.

As an added precautionary measure, Changi Airport Terminal 3 Basement 2 will be closed to the public temporarily with effect from 10 May.

Members of the public who had visited Changi Airport Terminal 3 on 3 May are advised to monitor their health closely for 14 days from their date of visit.

"To pre-emptively mitigate any potential risk of wider, undetected community transmission, we will offer free COVID-19 testing for these individuals," said the ministry.

The MOH has strongly encouraged them to visit a Regional Screening Centre or “Swab and Send Home” (SASH) Public Health Preparedness Clinic from 10 May to 16 May for a free swab test. The ministry will progressively inform these individuals via SMS notification from 10 May, with information on how to book an appointment for their test, it added.
