Two with omicron variant transited Changi: Singapore


Singapore started contact tracing for airport staff who may have come into contact with two travelers infected with the omicron variant of Covid-19 who transited through Changi Airport on their way to Australia from South Africa, the health ministry said.
Two individuals, described as being from southern Africa, flew from Johannesburg to Singapore on a Singapore Airlines flight, and had tested negative for Covid in South Africa, the ministry said. They later flew onward to Sydney on another Singapore Airlines flight, where they tested positive for the omicron variant.
While most of the travelers for the Singapore Airlines flight from Johannesburg had remained in the transit area until their departure for Sydney, seven disembarked, the ministry said in a statement.
