Singapore extends partial lockdown until June 1 as infections surge


Singapore will extend a partial lockdown until June 1 to curb a sharp rise in coronavirus infections in the city-state, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said on Tuesday (April 20).

The city-state reported 1,111 new coronavirus cases, bringing total infections to 9,125, after a record daily jump of 1,426 cases on Monday.

Lee said the extended lockdown period would help bring community cases down decisively and make sure infections in migrant dormitories do not spread into the wider community.

    "Circuit breaker starting to have an effect"
    Like what an increase of Covid19 cases and an increase in joggers and cyclist exercising in groups outside?
    Useless Prime minister… Too afraid to make a firm decision on isolation. Circuit breaker in Singapore is a joke.

    Presumption is the root to all evil.
    Why do you think the authorities disallow people to even hang out at the gates of their own house compounds?
