A number of local sports events, including those at the school level and national sports leagues, have been canned or postponed after Singapore upped its disease outbreak response to the coronavirus to Code Orange on Friday (Feb 7).

The Ministry of Education (MOE) announced that all external school activities and inter-school activities, including the ongoing National School Games, will be suspended until the end of the March school holidays, as part of precautionary measures against the virus outbreak.

“These additional measures are intended to help schools minimise exposure of students to the public and avoid mixing of students across schools,” said an MOE spokesman in a media statement.

The announcement comes shortly after Singapore moved its disease outbreak response up a level to Orange as the coronavirus spread further within the country, with three new cases of unknown origin announced, including a junior college teacher.
