Clarifications On Misinformation by MOH

7 Feb 2020: There has been a message circulating of death in Singapore due to the 2019 Novel Coronavirus. This is false. As of 2 pm, 7 Feb, there are no deaths due to the 2019-nCOV in Singapore.

7 Feb 2020: A fake screengrab of a CNA tweet was circulated widely on social media saying that all schools including polytechnics and universities are to close next Monday (10 Feb) due to the ongoing novel coronavirus outbreak. This is untrue. The image, which is being circulated on messaging app WhatsApp, appears to have been a doctored screengrab of another tweet sent out by CNA. Click here for clarification from CNA.

MOH advises members of the public to not speculate and/or spread unfounded rumors. Click here for past clarifications.
