Singapore extends COVID-19 circuit breaker period until June 1

Singapore’s COVID-19 circuit breaker period has been extended by about a month to June 1, as the country continues to grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic. Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong announced the extension of the strict safe distancing measures in a televised address. Existing measures will also be tightened — more workplaces will be shut with only the most essential services to remain open. Meanwhile, entry to “hotspots” like wet markets will also be restricted.

  • Government should also give fine to people who are going to the parks with their family members! There are people are out with family members to go sightseeing to different parks which is far away from their home!

  • Just saying: circuit breaker increased the number of cases exponentially. Maybe you should go back to what you were doing before the circuit breaker

  • If initially
    there are at least 5 Safe Distancing Officers per HDB flat
    who remind wearing masks and so on
    Then the situation will not be so bad
    If there's a Shopping Appointment system app then
    There will be lesser people at each supermarket
    Why queue 1hr to get your groceries?
    Get an appointment to save time and effort of waiting in the queue

    Employment of more SDOs create income and constructive work
    plus arresting non compliance of Safe Distancing

    Isn't win win situation good?

  • We only have ~11,300 Acute Hospital beds. Yet, we have crossed 10K COVID infected persons by 22 April 2020. With five dengue deaths so in 2020, we expect to exceed 16,000 dengue patients in 2020 as we enter the warmer months ahead.

    Hmmm… I was just wondering if we might not already have had "The Rhodesia Solution" deployed.

  • Given grace period will allow the public to gather and queue again…which is what we do not want to have… Transportation is one of the essential services that health care workers need to get them to work everyday unless we don’t need the drs and nurses at the hospital?

  • My one and only question is when will Singapore open the border for short-term travelers to TRANSIT at Changi Airport? I really want to help to stop this pandemic but i also want to go home. I am mentally sick.

  • When the PAP fails, Singaporeans have to suffer the consequences. No job, no income, no freedom, no social interaction etc. Do you really want such a lousy party to run for another 5 years and have them tax you 9% GST? Do not vote for the PAP.

  • We can still see the probable infected illegal immigrants moving and working freely to continue the covid-19 spread.

  • With hindsight, the government is to blame for making three major, major mistakes: 1. Advising people not to wear masks, against common sense 2. No pre-emptive actions regarding the dorms. (Anticipating and addressing problems pre-emptively is the role of leaders. Decisive leaders, like Lee Kuan Yew, act fast and with pragmatic sense). 3. Putting lightweights in charge of the task force–without one clearly designated leader. They should have put Khaw Boon Wan in charge.
    After this crisis, the G3 and G2 must seriously reevaluate the performance of individual G4 leaders. Those previously anointed may have to have the oil rubbed off.

  • If it falls below 30, it will be beneficial for the public to know these locally infected cases where they went, their activities and their mode of transport for the past week as well.
