Singapore warns new virus strains infecting more children

Singapore (AFP) – Singapore will close schools from tomorrow as authorities warned new coronavirus strains such as the one first detected in India were affecting more children in the city-state.

The government has been tightening restrictions because of a recent rise in local transmissions, after months of near-zero cases.

Authorities said on Sunday that primary and secondary schools as well as junior colleges would shift to full home-based learning from tomorrow until the end of the school term on May 28.
