Sept 17 (Reuters) – Singapore’s health ministry reported 935 new COVID-19 cases on Friday, the highest since April last year.

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