Cases have been on the rise

Two weeks ago, on Sep. 24, the Multi-Ministry Taskforce (MTF) announced that group sizes for social gatherings and dining-in will be reduced to two persons, after a rise of Covid-19 cases within Singapore.

The MTF said that these measures will be reviewed after two weeks of implementation, based on the community situation at the time.

On Oct. 7, the Ministry of Health reported 3,483 new Covid-19 cases, bringing the total number of cases to 116,864.
