Singapore’s response to the coronavirus has been held up by many around the world as a model. As of this week, the country has had 266 total cases (with zero deaths), and its infection rate is much slower than the rest of the world.

In the years since, isolation hospitals were built, more negative pressure rooms were created and legislation was put in place.
