Orgi goot one lah ......aka serve them right Ban all travellers from high risk nations to safeguard tight measure in ring fencing. Took you all damn long enough. Nothing about racism, just plain common sense and risk management . Plus we are still waiting for some answers on which genius in ICA management decided to put a non vaccinated officer in the front lines handling high risk arrivals from South Asia
Even Sporeans/PRs from these high risk country should not be allowed reentry if they choose to leave here within 6mths of arrival. Why all these flying in and out ? Clock air mileage It is almost impossible to believe this was not already the process 😩 Just banned all flight arrivals from Highest Risk countries or regions from entering into Singapore... before it's too late...
Last year also closed border for non Sg residents, why not now? If nothing came in from overseas, would there be Changi Airport and TTSH cluster? Again, sorry to comment and so negative mind. Business as usual Should have done this segregation long time ago. In Australia we don’t have that problem every one is high risk.
