1000 COVID19 cases in Singapore
On 1 April 2020, the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases hit 1000. This unfortunate milestone was reached 70 days after the first confirmed case was announced in Singapore on 23rd Jan, two days before Chinese New Year.
We look at some of the statistics of all the reported cases so far in Singapore.
Data correct as at 1 APR 2020.
Case number progression
Here we track how Singapore got from 1 case to 1000 cases over time. It also shows the number of recoveries and deaths over time.
Time to reach the next 100
It took 37 days in Singapore to reach 100 confirmed cases and 13 days more to reach 200. But as you can see, subsequent 100s took 1-4 days to reach, highlight the acceleration of the number of confirmed cases in this country.

Age of confirmed cases
The average age of the 1000 confirmed cases is 41, the median age is 38.
The oldest case is a 102yo female resident at Lee Ah Mooi Home (#983, reported on 1 Apr) and the youngest is a 6-month toddler (#28, reported 5 Feb). The toddler has been discharged on 22 Feb.
In terms of age groups, the 20-29 group is the most common in Singapore. More than two-thirds of this age group are imported cases, most of them are likely to be returning students from overseas or those taking holidays in affected countries.
Elsewhere, the cases seem fairly well spread about the other older age groups.
Local VS imported
Of the 1000 cases, 523 have been imported, meaning that the cases most likely contracted Covid-19 from overseas.
There are 23 registered clusters in Singapore. A cluster is identified when several cases of COVID-19 are detected in the same venue, be it a workplace, residential area or particular event.
The largest cluster is linked to a private dinner event held at Jurong SAFRA on 15 Feb (47 cases). The next largest is linked PCF (PAP Community Foundation) Fengshan, a childcare service near the Bedok area (23 cases).
Good news is that some earlier clusters like Yong Thai Hang, Wizlearn Tech, Grace’s Assembly and Grand Hyatt have already seen 100% recoveries.
Percentage of discharged cases
One of the key statistic to know is the discharged rate of all the cases. This is particular important as there is a drive to discharge cases who are well.
In late Feb, this ratio was as high as 70% in Singapore but has since fallen to about 20%-25% from mid-March on.
