Sept 26 (Reuters) – Singapore’s health ministry reported 1,939 new COVID-19 cases on Sunday, the highest since the beginning of the pandemic.

A recent rise in cases after the relaxation of some COVID-19 measures has prompted Singapore to pause further reopening. More than 80% of its population has been vaccinated against COVID-19.
