As of April 9, Singapore has confirmed 1,910 COVID-19 cases and six deaths. In late March, the government launched a 3-pronged COVID-19 strategy: reducing imported cases, detecting and isolating cases early, and emphasizing social responsibility and personal hygiene. To achieve early detection and isolation, Singapore has expanded its contact tracing capability, and authorities can now trace up to 4,000 contacts per day. The government has also launched an app that notifies people in close proximity with COVID-19 patients to complement existing contact tracing efforts.
