The World Health Organization’s regional chief said on Tuesday that Singapore – which has the highest number of reported cases in Southeast Asia – is facing “very difficult challenges” from a recent surge in infections but has the healthcare system and risk management capacity to handle it.

The city-state recorded its biggest ever daily jump in cases on Monday with 1,426 new infections.
