Fatigue


 

Daily Dose: Fatigue

It had been 4 months since Circuit Breaker was introduced. At the height of the crisis, several restrictions were imposed. Today things are slowly getting back to normal. One can freely head out to shop, dine and meet up with friends and relatives. 

Nonetheless, masks wearing is still compulsory save for when one is having meals or exercising. Social gatherings are limited to 5 and travel remains restrictive.  At a recent survey, 44% of Singapore residents indicate that they are tired of the rules. It is interesting to note that this survey applies to Singapore residents ( including foreigners).  It may not represent the views of Singaporeans who constitute about 60% of the population. 

1) 86 New Covid19 cases

  • 78 Dorms
