SINGAPORE's government moved to assure residents via Facebook that it won't run out of food or basic necessities, after neighboring Malaysia said it would halt travel abroad, reports Bloomberg.

The city-state's residents 'may have to make some adjustments to our choices in the short term,' however the country has 'sufficient food supplies for all Singaporeans as long as all of us buy responsibly,' Minister for Trade and Industry Chan Chun Sing said in a Facebook post.



Later in the day, Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said in a separate Facebook post Malaysia has assured Singapore that the flow of goods and cargo, including food supplies, between both countries will continue. Both countries appointed senior ministers to coordinate responses to the coronavirus outbreak, Lee said.



The comments came after Malaysia banned residents from travelling overseas and instituted a mandatory 14-day self-quarantine for those returning home in a bid to limit the coronavirus outbreak. Some 300,000 people a day cross by land between Malaysia and Singapore, supplying the wealthy city-state with food, supplies and workers.
