It’s been a month since my last post (5 May) where I worried things were getting worse, and they have in a way. Cases continued to grow, the airport cluster became quite significant, and there was a large shopping centre cluster. Many children were found to be infected, and they have spread it to their parents, grandparents and each other.
We were put in Phase 2 (HA) since 16 May and this stage is due to end on Sunday June 13. The restrictions were severe and it must have worked because the last three days have seen community cases come down to single digits.
Well we are just 5 days away from the scheduled end of this phase and no announcement has yet been made as to what’s next. This is no good for planning.
Can we go back to office? Now all must work from home unless absolutely necessary. Companies have been fined for not complying.
Can we have home tuition or music for children? Its school holidays now but all enrichment classes such as music lessons must be online.
Can we have have more than 2 different visitors a day at home? This is giving me issues. I’ve had to text people to say they cannot come visit on certain days when I already have others scheduled.
Will the Hong Kong flight bubble be reinstated again? This has been planned and postponed twice already, first due to rising cases in Hong Kong and this time due to rising cases in Singapore.
The problem is nobody knows if we are going to have more or fewer cases in the coming days. Also, I suspect the task force cannot yet agree and must still be debating what to do next. The recent Cabinet musical chair switcharound with noobs helming key ministries doesn’t help either.
