SINGAPORE: As more novel coronavirus cases are confirmed in Singapore and more locally transmitted cases emerge, here's a look at the clusters that have become apparent, the patients who have no known links to the virus, as well as those who have recovered or whose condition has taken a turn for the worse. 

THE CLUSTERS

The Grace Assembly of God church branches at Tanglin and Bukit Batok have emerged as the largest locally transmitted cluster, with 22 confirmed cases (Cases 48, 49, 51, 53, 54, 57, 58, 60, 61, 62, 63, 66, 67, 68, 70, 71, 73, 74, 78, 80, 81 and 84) linked to it.

The first cluster to be identified, at health products shop Yong Thai Hang, is another significant cluster of nine cases, including four shop employees (Cases 19, 20, 34 and 40) and the tour guide (Case 24) who visited the shop with a tour group from Guangxi. 

One of the employees - patient 19 - subsequently infected her husband, their six-month-old son, as well as their Indonesian domestic helper.

The tour guide's husband was also diagnosed with the virus. He works at Diamond Industries Jewellery Company, which the Guangxi tour group also visited.

Separately, a cluster has emerged around The Life Church and Missions Singapore in Paya Lebar, with six people who had been there confirmed to have contracted the virus. 

Of them, four are Singaporeans. Two imported cases - a married couple from Wuhan - were also found to have visited the church. 

Meanwhile, five Bangladeshi work pass holders are linked to a cluster at Bombardier's Singapore Service Centre expansion site at Seletar Aerospace Heights.

The cluster associated with a business meeting at the Grand Hyatt hotel saw some of its participants spread the virus beyond Singapore's borders.

In addition to three Singaporean patients, two South Koreans, one Malaysian and a Briton who were at the conference have also been confirmed as coronavirus patients.

The Malaysian man's sister and mother-in-law subsequently contracted the virus.

The Briton appears to have passed the virus on to at least 11 of his compatriots who were at a French ski resort that he visited after leaving Singapore.

PATIENTS WITH NO KNOWN LINKS

Amid the emergence of several locally transmitted cases with no recent travel history to China or links with the other confirmed cases, authorities on Feb 7 raised the DORSCON risk assessment framework for coronavirus to orange.

Instances of such patients whose links with other cases are so far unclear include a Victoria Junior College teacher (Case 32), a taxi driver (Case 35) and a private-hire driver (Case 37).

The Ministry of Health has been carrying out contact tracing for all confirmed cases, but any links that these patients might have to existing cases have yet to emerge. 

IMPORTED CASES

More than 20 of Singapore's cases are imported. Many are Chinese nationals who entered Singapore on or before Jan 23, the date China authorities imposed a lockdown on Wuhan to prevent the spread of the virus. 

At least six of the imported cases are Singaporeans who were evacuated from Wuhan on Scoot flights on Jan 30 and Feb 9. They include a two-year-old girl who was diagnosed with the virus on Feb 10 and a one-year-old boy confirmed on Feb 16.

PATIENTS IN CRITICAL CONDITION

All the patients had been in stable condition previously but several began taking a turn for the worse, with the Ministry of Health announcing on Feb 6 that one patient was in the intensive care unit and another requiring additional oxygen support. 

As of Feb 21, five patients are in critical condition in the intensive care unit.

The Ministry of Health declined to provide further details on the identity of these cases, citing patient confidentiality.
