The latest figures raise the national caseload to 25,333 and the death toll to 447.
Despite an overall slowdown in new cases, health authorities remain vigilant over sporadic cluster infections, which continue to pop up across the country as people have gradually returned to their daily routines under Level 1 social distancing guidelines.
