SINGAPORE – Singapore has detected a second person with pneumonia who may be infected with the new virus that surfaced in Wuhan, China.

The Ministry of Health (MOH) said the 26-year-old China national has a travel history to Wuhan, although he had not gone to the seafood wholesale market where the new bug is thought to have emerged.

A statement from the ministry said: “He has been admitted for further assessment and treatment, and isolated as a precautionary measure. His condition is stable.”
