SINGAPORE (Reuters) – Singapore reported its third coronavirus death on Sunday, a day after the city-state’s total infections topped 800.

The health ministry said the patient, a 70-year-old male Singaporean, had been in intensive care for 27 days before he passed and that he had some pre-existing conditions.

Singapore’s other two fatalaties related to the disease came just over a week ago and were also elderly with underlying conditions.
