Singapore reintroduces masks due to COVID-19

Singapore has reintroduced mask mandates due to a surge in COVID-19 cases and rising hospitalizations.

According to Business Standard, Singapore’s Ministry of Health said the number of COVID-19 cases rose to 56,043 in the first week of December, up from 32,035 in the previous week.

Authorities urge the public to stay home if they have symptoms of an acute respiratory infection, wear masks, and minimize social interaction. The Ministry of Health also disseminates information about vaccination and its effectiveness in preventing severe illness.

Travelers have been asked to take preventive measures, including wearing masks at airports, purchasing travel insurance, and avoiding poorly ventilated or crowded areas.

To optimize hospital resources, the public is encouraged to seek treatment in emergency departments only for serious or life-threatening emergencies.
