PM Lee Asks Citizens To Carry On Living “As Normally As Possible” & Revisit Local Attractions

Although the Covid-19 outbreak has led to some changes in lifestyle, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong still urges citizens to go about their lives as per normal.

He shares that the government is working closely with businesses and union leaders to ensure that workers are protected during this downturn.

He then promotes visiting – or revisiting – local attractions and staycations at local hotels in Singapore. Citing free entry to Jewel’s Canopy Park as an example, PM Lee asked for all of us to go about our lives as normally as possible in spite of Covid-19 outbreak.

Each photo came with a cute little blurb introducing the different species. From flamingos to cranes, iguanas to Jurong Bird Park staff, it sure looked like he covered many bases during his trip.

It’s nice to see when a leader leads by example. We should not let Covid-19 get in the way of our lives and continue our support for local tourism.

Do remember to stay vigilant though, and practise good hygiene.
