It's been about a month since Singapore began Phase 2 of its reopening plans. We've seen the city slowly come back to life after the circuit breaker – with restaurant and bars opening their doors, galleries and museums welcoming visitors and cinemas dusting off their projectors. Heck, we've even had a national election.
To date, Singapore has had more than 46,000 cases of Covid-19 and 27 deaths. These days, we're still seeing new cases being reported in the hundreds, including double-digit cases in the community outside of migrant worker dormitories. Yet, aside from the use of face masks and markings on the floor reminding us to practise social distancing, it seems like life has pretty much returned back to normal.
However, the novel coronavirus remains an ever-present threat and we shouldn't get complacent. Cities like Hong Kong and Melbourne are in the middle of a second and even third wave, showing us that this is something we'll have to live with for the foreseeable future.
So as we cautiously step out of homes and walk into the new normal, here's a look at what Singapore looks like post-circuit breaker.
