SINGAPORE (Reuters) – Singapore reported two coronavirus-related deaths on Saturday , marking the city-state’s first fatalities from the infection.
The patients who died were a 75-year-old Singaporean woman
and a 64-year-old Indonesian man, the health ministry said in a statement.
Singapore, widely praised for its fastidious onslaught against the virus, has confirmed 385 cases of the infection and had so far managed to avoid any fatalities since the outbreak began in the city-state in late January.
