Dorscon Amber?

 


Daily Dose: Dorscon Amber?

Yesterday, a whole slew of measures were passed to relax the regulations of Covid19 in Singapore. The last case of local transmission was on 12 March. Given that we had reached 12 days without a case, the timing for such regulations looks apporiate.

We are moving ahead to normalisation with 45-59 years old invited for vaccination, easing crowds, and workplace restrictions. Looks like we are heading towards Doscon Amber now... 



1) 15 Covid19 cases

15 Imported cases

12 days without a local case.

•             3 (Cases 61135, 61136 and 61144) are Singaporeans who returned from Indonesia and the UK.
