No need to tighten Covid-19 measures for now
Speaking to the media yesterday (28 May), Finance Minister and co-chair of the Covid-19 Taskforce Mr Lawrence Wong said that there’s no foreseeable need to tighten existing measures for now.
But the authorities will continue to monitor the situation before making any further decisions.
He also announced several financial support initiatives that MOF will be rolling out soon.
These are aimed at helping firms and individuals affected by Phase 2 (Heightened Alert).
Hope situation will improve soon
Despite reports of the situation stabilising, we shouldn’t take this as a sign for us to be complacent, as the threat of infection is still real.
Until we’re sure that Covid-19 isn’t a huge risk anymore, we should continue to remain vigilant and take precautions.
Hopefully, though, the overall situation will improve and consistently do so for a long time to come, so we can eventually resume normalcy.
We’re sure many miss the pre-pandemic life, and want to recover a stronger sense of it soon.
