How Singapore Handled the Pandemic
How Singapore handled the pandemic is not surprising. It was one of the first countries to detect the disease and was near the top of the confirmed cases list in early February. After the SARS wake-up call, the health system has invested heavily in capacity building and outbreak preparation. The country has learned many lessons on every level: disease, community, and health system. It will continue to learn from the experience and will improve its response in future situations.
