5 detected using our vaccinated lanes. Does these mean the pre flight test results from overseas are not trustworthy? This is serious enough for the coming import of a more deadly variant that will cause a disaster & muck up our current protocols. Everyday there is imported cases so if it is only 5 from VTL,than where are the other imported cases from? If there are other imported cases from other travel arrangements,than why not standardised all travel arrangements,regardless of tourist/business etc etc ?

Another big mistake by the SG government to trade Singaporean lives for tourists dollars. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms , ephesians 6:12
