Koh Poh Koon on imported COVID-19 cases

(Updated: )

Less than 1 per cent of total arrivals to Singapore since Apr 1 last year have tested positive for COVID-19, with most visitors coming from Malaysia, China, Indonesia and India. Senior Minister of State for Health Koh Poh Koon gave this update in Parliament on Tuesday (Feb 16) in response to an MP’s questions. He also gave a breakdown of the proportion of COVID-positive cases among arrivals from each country. Dr Koh said the Government will review whether to extend the requirement for COVID-19 travel insurance to all travellers, to help them pay for any potential treatment costs.
