After months of relatively low numbers of daily new cases, over the weekend Singapore reported crossed the 1,000 mark for new daily cases, the highest since April last year.

Public hospitals are seeing a surge in the number of patients but the vast majority – more than 98 percent – are asymptomatic or with mild symptoms, so health officials are now urging them to go to a general practitioner or clinic to free up hospitals for urgent care.

While Singapore’s vaccination rate is among the world’s highest, the country is still trying to convince sceptics to go for the jab.
