Circuit Breaker Extended in Singapore
COVID-19 circuit breaker extended until Jun 1 as Singapore aims to bring down community cases ‘decisively. We are isolating ourselves at home. Not many places we could go as majority of shops, malls are closed except for essential business like supermarkets, wet markets,clinics, pharmacies, restaurants, eateries, etc. We could not dine in and could only takeaway of food. Now even the barbers and hairdressers are closed. Common scenario nowadays, we need to queue to enter wet markets or supermarkets and also to rememeber to observe social distance otherwise we need pay a fine of S$300 for first offence and $1000 for second offence. And yes, now wearing masks is compulsory otherwise we will be fined. I think is good that majority of the population are very coperative except for few who break the laws and not wearing masks. For popular wet markets, we could visit only on even or odd dates based on our last digit of our NRIC (National Registration Identity Card). Going to supermarket is a very stressful and sad thing nowadays. We could always see empty shelves of eggs and popular items. Luckily, I had few supermarkets, minimarts near me where I could get my groceries easily. Finally, as being a senior citizen myself, I dare not loiter around, quickly get my stuff and head back home. The virus is really scary and invisible enemy.
