Ministerial statement: Lawrence Wong on ‘critical phase’ of COVID-19 fight as Singaporeans return home

(Updated: )

National Development Minister Lawrence Wong paid an emotional tribute in Parliament to those who have been contributing in the battle against COVID-19. Speaking on Wednesday (Mar 25), he said Singapore is “only at the beginning of a very long fight”. He said Singapore is at a "critical phase" in its battle as more citizens return from abroad. Mr Wong said the latest Government measures may help to slow down the spread of the virus and stabilise the number of new cases. But it is also possible for the number to continue to rise. If this happens, more drastic measures will be needed.
