In Singapore alone, there are currently 24 confirmed cases.

Free masks and sanitisers

To help cope with the outbreak, some Singaporeans have been giving out free masks and sanitisers to help one another.

These include those working in the healthcare sector, home bound patients, taxi drivers, bus drivers and others who are in need.
