Stay vigilant and do our part

Singapore has been seeing a rising number of community cases in recent days.

While the authorities do their part to manage the Covid-19 situation, the onus is also on each of us to play our part and adhere to measures.

Only then can we overcome this hurdle and hopefully be able to enjoy a greater sense of normalcy again in time to come.
