(Apr 25): Singapore is looking to pivot to a more aggressive coronavirus response strategy that involves mass testing for its population of 5.7 million people as cases in the city-state jumped more than ten-fold this month to cross 11,000.

The country hopes to be able to “progressively reopen” its economy in about a month’s time, with “much more testings for the entire population and at the same time to take on” additional safe distancing measures, Minister for Trade and Industry Chan Chun Sing said Thursday in an interview with Bloomberg TV’s Haslinda Amin.
