SINGAPORE – There will be a wide-ranging review of the Government’s Covid-19 response after the situation has stabilised, to allow Singapore to learn valuable lessons and improve its response for future pandemics.
Senior Minister Teo Chee Hean announced plans for an After Action Review (AAR) on Monday (July 5) in response to Leader of the Opposition Pritam Singh, who had asked if the Government will commit to setting up a Commission of Inquiry (COI) to review its response to Covid-19.
Mr Teo, who is the Coordinating Minister for National Security, said the AAR should be open and forthcoming. It should also acknowledge shortcomings on where the Government could and should have done better, even as it analyses successes.
