The Next Wave


 Daily Dose: The Next Wave

As Singapore began to eradicate Covid19 from the local community and the dorms, it will prepare itself for the next wave as the opening of borders become the next step to recovery.

While that is the next logical step, it will not be without risk. Nonethless, it is carefully calibrated with green lanes or travel bubbles between countries that have similar numbers and controls as us, it will be a small step back to pre Covid19 days.


1) 68 new Covid19 Cases

  • 66 Dorms
