S’pore Reduces Social Gathering & Dine-In Group Limits To 2-Pax From 27 Sep

With over 1,000 Covid-19 cases warded, this is putting a strain on our resources.

There are plans to scale up operations so we can handle a higher number of cases, but until then, the current restrictions will remain.

We shall see in 2 weeks if the burden has been eased.

Rest in peace to the deceased

MS News offer our condolences to the 2 deceased’s families.

With safe management measures in place, it must not be easy for the families who can only watch their loved ones via video before they pass on.

We hope that the families can find closure from the deaths.
