Phase 3 in Singapore: What can you expect?
Singapore could enter the third phase of its reopening by the end of the year, provided that community cases remain low as the country steps up Covid-19 testing and contact tracing. As part of phase 3, the multi-ministry task force said the permitted size of gatherings outside homes could be increased from five people to eight. Similarly, households could be allowed to have up to eight visitors at a time, enabling larger families to congregate. On Prime Time, Howie Lim spoke to Linette Lai, ST’s political correspondent for more insights on what we can expect from the next phase.
