Tan Tock Seng Hospital has cheered healthcare workers on with a public display of lights shone on its exterior.

The building was lit up prominently with the words "We are stronger together, because we have each other".

The display, available from July 22 to 26, is part of the #LightForSG movement that was launched last year to boost the morale of healthcare workers.

Changi General Hospital lit up with similar encouraging messages in August last year as well.

Commenting on the light-up in a Facebook post on Friday, July 23, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said these words "powerfully remind us that we have to unite and cooperate in order to overcome this pandemic as a nation".


As Singapore enters another round of tighter restrictions under Phase Two (Heightened Alert), he urged the nation to "rely on one another for reassurance, companionship and support, to get through these trying times".

The slide back to stricter measures -- where dining in is banned and social gatherings are limited to two persons -- was caused by the Jurong Fishery Port cluster, not the KTV cluster, Minister for Health Ong Ye Kung said.

He added that the stricter measures aim to protect unvaccinated seniors who are likely to frequent markets.

Through a video message, PM Lee also urged seniors aged above 60 to get vaccinated soon.
