Stay vigilant amid the pandemic

With authorities ramping up testing efforts, we can expect to see more cases being picked up in the coming days.

However, this shouldn’t be cause for alarm, as we’re assured that mass testing will pick up cases, especially asymptomatic ones, so they can be isolated swiftly before spreading to the community.

In the meantime, do stay vigilant during the pandemic. Get vaccinated when you’re eligible, practise good hygiene, and keep a safe distance from others when you’re out.
