Singapore’s Tan Tock Seng Hospital is closing its wards to visitors until further notice, after three of its patients and two of its staff were confirmed positive for COVID-19, the hospital announced through its social media channel.

Close staff contacts have been swabbed and are being placed on leave of absence pending further investigations with the Ministry of Health (MOH), the hospital said. It has also locked down the affected ward and have been swabbing and isolating all patients in the ward.
