- SINGAPORE – Managing the pandemic remains Singapore’s first priority, even as economic activities gradually resume, said Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat on Tuesday (Nov 25).Pointing at how a resurgence in Covid-19 cases in other countries has posed difficulties for their economic recovery, he said the question of whether to save lives or livelihoods amid the pandemic is not binary.
“The better we are able to manage the pandemic, the better we are able to protect jobs,” he said.
