SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Singapore reported 23 new cases of coronavirus on Sunday, mainly imported and taking the city state’s tally of the infection to 455, according to a health ministry statement.

Earlier on Sunday, authorities said they will not allow any short-term visitors to transit or enter Singapore, a move aimed at trying to contain the spread of the virus and conserve resources for citizens who are returning from other countries.
