Plans to ease Covid-19 rules on June 21 being relooked due to ‘major new cluster’ in Bukit Merah: Lawrence Wong

The Government's Covid-19 task force is now evaluating the “timing and scope” of Singapore’s reopening

SINGAPORE — The multi-ministry task force handling Singapore’s response to Covid-19 is evaluating the "timing and scope" of the next stage of Singapore’s reopening, given the “major new cluster” in Bukit Merah.

 

In a Facebook video post on Wednesday (June 16), Finance Minister Lawrence Wong, who co-chairs the task force, said that it was studying the situation carefully with public health experts and would provide more updates soon.

 

“Unfortunately, we have had a latest outbreak of cases, and we are likely to be dealing now with a very large cluster in Bukit Merah, where the cases are breaking out not only in the market and the hawker centre, but also all around the vicinity,” he said.

 

Mr Wong added that the number of cases with no links to other coronavirus infections in the community was likely to be rising, too.

 

“So, with these latest developments, we are evaluating the timeline and the scope of our second stage of opening.” 

 

The task force had announced last week that Covid-19 curbs could be lifted further on June 21, if the situation here remains under control.
