“The number is zero today (Tuesday), but we will likely see new cases popping up over time,” said Wong in a Facebook post. Wong said he understood people felt tired about the current measures and wanted to resume more activities.

“We still need to keep our guard up and stay very disciplined in complying with all the necessary safeguards. That’s the mindset that will enable us to continue on this path of progressive re-opening in a safe and sustainable manner,” he said. Meanwhile, Singapore reported five new COVID-19 cases on Wednesday, three of which were imported infections and two were from the local community.
