The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating 446 additional COVID-19 cases, of which 176 were detected by nucleic acid tests and 270 were identified via rapid antigen tests.   Among the new cases, 64 are imported while the rest are locally infected.   Since the onset of the fifth wave of the epidemic, 1,202,007 people have contracted the virus and 9,169 people passed away.   Of the newly reported cases, regarding the bar clusters in Central, Zentral bar registered two more cases and Iron Fairies & J.
