Solidarity Budget: Ong Teng Koon on additional support measures in response to COVID-19 pandemic(Updated: )
In Parliament on Monday (Apr 6), MP Ong Teng Koon described the coronavirus pandemic as possibly "the biggest crisis the world has ever faced in modern times". However, he urged Singapore to use this opportunity to enhance its strategic position, as it has shown the world that it can lead in many ways, such as with its first-class contact tracing protocols. Mr Ong said he was proud of how the Government has "pulled out all the stops" and mobilised society. He believes the crisis will inspire a generation of young people to come forward to serve the community, including in public service.
