Fight against Covid-19 is far from over

With Singapore’s latest record of Covid-19 cases on 27 Jul, it’s evident that the fight against Covid-19 is far from over.

We have a long way to go till a vaccine is found, until then, keep your masks and SafeEntry logs at the ready. This is the new reality we’ll have to adjust to in Phase 2.
