SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Singapore will unveil new support measures for workers, businesses and households in response to the coronavirus pandemic on March 26, the finance ministry said on Monday.

The new measures come just weeks after the city-state - which has banned all travellers to try and combat the pandemic - unveiled multi-billion dollar virus-fighting schemes in its annual budget.
