Sept 28 (Reuters) - Singapore's health ministry reported 2,236 new COVID-19 cases on Tuesday, the highest since the beginning of the pandemic.

A recent rise in cases after the relaxation of some COVID-19 measures has prompted Singapore to pause further reopening. More than 80% of its population has been vaccinated against COVID-19.

From this week, Singapore tightened some COVID-19 curbs such as limiting social gatherings to two people and making work from home a default. (Reporting by Juby Babu in Bengaluru; Editing by Amy Caren Daniel)
