Singapore’s COVID-19 Cases Per Million Exceeds Wuhan

COVID-19 has now infected a larger proportion of the population in Singapore compared to Wuhan when measured by the number of cases per million residents.

To date, Wuhan has reported 50,339 cases of COVID-19 since the outbreak began. For a population of over 11 million, that translates to roughly 4,542 cases per one million residents.

Friday’s (May 15) cases bring Singapore’s tally to 26,891 cases or 4,596 cases per one million residents.
