SINGAPORE – Singapore will review its Covid-19 restrictions in early August, and ease some measures if virus clusters are under control and hospitalisation rates remain low.
But any loosened restrictions will be extended only to vaccinated individuals, who are “much better protected against the effects of the virus”, Finance Minister Lawrence Wong said on Monday (July 26).
“This means that if you want to attend a large event or a religious service involving more than 100 persons, you have to be fully vaccinated,” he told the House in a ministerial statement that gave an overview of the country’s next steps in its pandemic response.
