Singapore, May 31 (Sputnik/ANI): Singapore has registered 518 new COVID-19 cases over the past 24 hours taking the tally to 34,884, the Health Ministry said on Sunday.

"As of 31 May 2020 ... the Ministry of Health (MOH) has preliminarily confirmed an additional 518 cases of COVID-19 infection in Singapore, the vast majority of whom are Work Permit holders residing in foreign worker dormitories. Based on our investigations so far, there are three cases in the community, all of whom are Singaporeans/Permanent Residents," the statement said.
