2 Singapore Airlines passengers test positive for Omicron variant
Their pre-departure tests in South Africa on 26 November were negative.
Australia's New South Wales Ministry of Health confirmed two travellers who arrived in Sydney on a Singapore Airlines flight had tested positive for the Omicron variant of concern.
The travellers departed from Johannesburg on 27 November via Singapore Airlines and arrived at Changi Airport on the same day for their transit flight. They remained in the transit area at Changi Airport until their departure for Sydney on 28 November and did not enter Singapore or visit other areas in Changi Airport.
Contact tracing is ongoing for airport staff who may have come into transient contact with the cases.
