A big shout out to all our front liners and everyone who has worked so hard to bring the virus under control.
For the first time in more than 6 months, we have achieved zero cases both in the community and migrant worker dormitories.
But this is not the time to let our guard down, Co-chair of the Multi-Ministry Taskforce on COVID-19, Lawrence Wong said
“I can appreciate the sense of fatigue that people feel about the current measures and the desire to resume more activities. But please remember: the virus has not been eradicated. It’s still circulating in our community,” Mr Wong said in a Facebook post. “The number is zero today, but it won’t be zero tomorrow as we will have new cases popping up,” he added.
The number may be zero today but we will still have new cases popping up, Mr Wong said. So we will still need to keep our guards up and stay very disciplined in complying with all the necessary safeguards, he emphasized.
“That’s the mindset that will enable us to continue on this path of progressive re-opening in a safe and sustainable manner.”
