SINGAPORE (Reuters) – Singapore’s health ministry said on Monday it confirmed 486 new coronavirus cases, taking its tally of infections to 23,822.
The health ministry said the number of cases, the lowest in a week, were partly distorted by fewer tests being processed as one of its laboratories was recalibrating apparatus after 33 false positives were identified.
