Hopefully, this means that the patients are detected at an earlier stage before they’re allowed to infect others.

Just yesterday, MOH reportedly found new clusters in 2 workers’ dormitories.

Do our part to keep each other safe

Though the single-digit community cases will come as a relief for many Singaporeans, the battle against Covid-19 is still ongoing.

We cannot let our guards down and risk clusters forming, which might lead to the implementation of even stricter Covid-19 regulations.

Let’s all do our part to keep each other safe.
