The government is currently reviewing whether to allow people to visit their relatives after June 1 when the circuit breaker measures are lifted.

“We recognise that many people would like to visit their family members,” said National Development Minister Lawrence Wong, who co-chairs the multi-ministry task force tackling the coronavirus outbreak.

“Many parents and grandparents miss their children and grandchildren,” he added, stating that video calls are not the same as being physically present. The authorities understand this desire to be physically connected again, he said.

“While we would like to allow them to see one another… we have to be quite cautious in moving on such a measure. “Particularly when it comes to the elderly, because we all know that they are vulnerable, and if they were to catch the virus, the disease is potentially lethal for them.” Mr Wong spoke on this current issue at a virtual press conference yesterday.

i hope the govt can allow people to visit their family members. If the person is sick - you think they will pass the virus to their own family members?


Sunshine Man reply Rocker 21/05/2020

To me Visiting of family members and siblings should be OK but not friends. Friends can wait another month but family , not..


Sunshine Man reply Sunshine Man 03/06/2020

Having 2 per household per day is not feasible. Should have 4 if the family is big.

Even they go to visit their relatives you also don't know. Don't forget that they always do what they tell us not to do. And do you think that enforcement dare to catch them.
