Abstract: The cluster of viral pneumonia cases that first began in Wuhan, Hubei province, China, in December 2019 has rapidly spread within China and globally. The virus responsible was subsequently identified on 7 January 2020 and the infection was given the official name of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) by the World Health Organization (WHO) on 11 February 2020. The first imported case of COVID-19 infection in Singapore was reported on 23 January 2020, the day on which all forms of travel into and out of Wuhan city were prohibited. As of 21 February 2020, 77,691 COVID-19 cases and 2,362 deaths had been reported worldwide. This skyrocketed to 617,548 cases as of 28 February 2020, with 732 cases in Singapore.
