Question

To ask  the Minister for Health whether the Ministry will report the number of tests for COVID-19 conducted daily since the start of the outbreak and any additional COVID-19 related national level health statistics daily, so as to enable global health researchers to assemble internationally comparable datasets on the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Answer

The Ministry of Health reports the relevant COVID-19 information and statistics regularly to keep Singaporeans updated. We also share information on the number of tests conducted from time to time where relevant. To date, we have conducted more than 65,000 COVID-19 tests. An average of around 2,000 tests are conducted daily.
