Singapore to allow quarantine-free travel from several nations

0 36

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said it was time to press on with the “strategy of living with Covid-19”.

He said so-called vaccinated travel lanes with Germany and Brunei had been successful, and would be extended to nine other countries.

Singapore had very tight restrictions in place to tackle the pandemic.

Covid-19-related deaths are very low, but the lockdown has had an impact on the South-East Asian island’s status as a business and aviation hub.

Prime Minister Lee told Singaporeans in a televised address that the Delta variant had shown the coronavirus was not going to go away.

But with vaccinations, social distancing measures and careful monitoring, it is possible to live with the “new normal”.

“It will take us at least three months, and perhaps as long as six months, to get there,” he said, acknowledging a likely surge in cases as restrictions ease that would have to be monitored closely.(BBC)
