SINGAPORE – Tracing the steps of a Covid-19 patient, such as the location for lunch last week, can be laborious, often because many cannot remember mundane matters.
But technological tools like TraceTogether and SafeEntry, introduced a few months after the pandemic hit Singapore about a year ago, have helped tremendously with the process, making it easier and faster now, said contact tracers from the Ministry of Health (MOH).
More than 80 per cent of the population is now on the TraceTogether programme, up from 78 per cent two weeks ago.
