SINGAPORE (Reuters) – Singapore reported a record 13,046 local coronavirus infections on Friday, triple the previous day’s tally.

Singapore has recorded 85,357 cases of the virus over the last 28 days, but 99.7% of them had no or mild symptoms.

The country has fully vaccinated 89% of the total population against COVID-19, while 59% have received boosters shots.

Authorities have previously warned that daily cases could rise to as many 15,000 due to the highly transmissible Omicron variant.
