Singapore PM says coronavirus pandemic could last a year or more
“Unlike SARS, this outbreak will continue for some time – a year, and maybe longer,” Lee said, adding that Singapore must prepare for a possible jump in cases.
Singapore has imposed travel restrictions on virus hotspots China, Iran, South Korea and Italy so far, and Lee said in a public broadcast that it “will need to tighten up further temporarily.”
However, he said Singapore – which has reported 187 virus cases – was not raising its island-wide virus alert level and the situation there “remains under control”.
