SINGAPORE, Jan 28 — The Ministry of Health (MOH) has confirmed another imported case of Wuhan coronavirus infection in Singapore, a 56-year-old female Chinese national from Wuhan who arrived in Singapore with her family on January 18.

She is currently warded in an isolation room at the National Centre for Infectious Diseases (NCID) and her condition is stable, the ministry said.

Giving a timeline of the case, MOH said that the woman had shown no symptoms during the flight to Singapore on January 18. She subsequently developed symptoms on January 24, and was conveyed by ambulance to Tan Tock Seng Hospital on January 26.

She was classified as a suspect case and immediately isolated at NCID, MOH said. Subsequent test results confirmed Wuhan coronavirus infection on January 27.

Prior to hospital admission, the woman stayed with her family at their home in Ceylon Road.

Since the onset of symptoms, she had remained in her home until she was conveyed to hospital on January 26.
