Rate of increase in Singapore’s COVID-19 cases “worrying”, next 2-4 weeks crucial: Taskforce

While the rise in COVID-19 cases is expected as Singapore opens up, the sharp rate of increase is "worrying", said co-chair of the multi-ministry task force Gan Kim Yong on Friday (Sep 10) during a press conference. He added that the next two to four weeks are crucial to see what steps the country takes next. During this period, seniors and those living with them should minimise their social interactions, said Health Minister Ong Ye Kung. He also outlined a slew of adjustments to healthcare measures. From next week, the quarantine period for those exposed to COVID-19 will be reduced 10 days. Meanwhile, the home recovery scheme for fully vaccinated people will be expanded from Sep 15. This is the full press conference and Q&A session with journalists.
