It's not over until the Fat Lady Sings



Daily Dose: It's not over until the Fat Lady Sings

The proverb runs through as what we had seen in the US election. 24 hours ago, President Trump looks set to have another 4 years in the office. As of today, the opponent, Biden is on the crux of getting the win with 264 seats called for him vs 214 for Trump. It takes 270 electoral votes to win and Biden is leading in Nevada with 6 seats.

But it is not over yet, the President is filing a suit of lawsuits in various states to overturn the count or stop the count. US election might settle tonight pending lawsuits by end of today. While the count stop may stop, the drama will continue at least for the next few weeks. The final outcome could impact Singapore's economic livelihood.

One takeaway we can have is the stability of politics in Singapore. In election time, it may not be the most cordial, but at least drama and uncertainty are unfamiliar territories in Singapore. For that, we are thankful. The other, never take things in life for granted.

3) Phase 3 could last over a year, restrictions may be imposed if cases spike again.

This year's Christmas, New Year Eve and even next Chinese New Year would be very different from before...

Mr Gan said group size limits depend on factors such as how frequently an activity takes place, what potential risks it has, and whether additional safety measures can be implemented to mitigate such risks.
