Singapore – Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong announced on Tuesday the government`s decision to prolong the country’s partial lockdown for another 4 weeks until June 1 as COVID-19 cases continue to increase.

The city-state reported 1,111 new coronavirus cases on Tuesday, bringing total infections to 9,125.

“We will therefore extend the circuit breaker for four more weeks.

 “We can make further adjustments and consider easing some measures,“ Lee said in a televised speech.

The sharp jump in cases in recent weeks led the government to extend the “circuit breaker”  and implement more stricter measures, which include the closures of most workplaces and schools, until it manages to sufficiently contain the virus.- Malaysia World News
