17 new community cases, 5 in ICU – MOH

The Ministry of Health official COVID statistics for 5 January 2022.

Omicron update:

23 cases have been identified at the border. While whole genome sequencing of these cases is expected soon, the likelihood is that Omicron will continue to be the most prevalent variant at our borders.
