Singapore confirmed two new cases of novel coronavirus Tuesday evening, bringing the country’s total to 110, according to a statement posted by the Ministry of Health.
The two patients include two male citizens aged 70 and 33, who have not reported travel history to affected countries and regions, the statement said. The 33-year-old is linked to a cluster of cases at Wizlearn Technologies.
In response to the outbreak, Singapore has banned visitors who recently traveled to Iran, northern Italy, and South Korea, the minister for National Development, Lawrence Wong, announced Tuesday.
Singaporean citizens and residents returning from those locations will be placed on a mandatory 14-day home quarantine upon their return, he added.
