Singapore to embark on controlled approach from June 2 as circuit breaker ends



CORONAVIRUS | The Singapore multi-ministry taskforce on Covid-19 has decided to exit the circuit breaker when it ends on June 1 allowing three quarters of the economy to restart and a third of its workforce to return to work in the initial phase.

Health Minister Gan Kim Yong, at the taskforce’s virtual press conference today, said the republic would then embark on a controlled approach to resume activities safely over three phases starting June 2 to reduce the risk of a second wave of infections, like many countries experienced after they lifted their control measures.
