(Updated: )

Explore alternative methods of COVID-19 testing that could enable Singapore to scale up mass testing - for instance, could private sector industrial labs that test surfaces also test human samples? This idea was put forward by NCMP Leon Perera during the debate on the Fortitude Budget in Parliament on Friday (Jun 5). He also suggested streamlining COVID-19 support schemes and putting them on a unified portal to avoid confusion and possible underutilisation. Mr Perera also highlighted the importance of developing homegrown entrepreneurship amid the global economic crisis.
