Graphic on COVID-19 deaths on CNA TV news bulletin wrong; corrected immediately on air

A graphic that aired on CNA’s Asia Tonight TV bulletin at 8pm (SG/HK) on Thursday (Feb 13) mistakenly listed a coronavirus death to Singapore.  The table, showing the tally of confirmed COVID-19 cases, misattributed a coronavirus death to Singapore, instead of Hong Kong.  The error was noticed immediately and was corrected twice on-air in the same bulletin. The CNA presenter also apologised for the error on air. We sincerely apologise for the error.
