Singapore’s PM says OMicron Could Lead to the Return of Some Curbs – Singapore is tracking developments surrounding the newly emerged Omicron COVID-19 variant “very closely” and could be forced to dial back its reopening plans, said Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Sunday (28 November).

We’re tracking this very closely. We’re not sure yet but we may well be forced to take a few steps back before we can take more steps forward, said PM Lee during his speech at the People’s Action Party (PAP) conference

In his speech, Lee also emphasised how national crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic are a “test of trust”. “One big reason our measures against COVID-19 are working is because Singaporeans trust the PAP government. They trust that the PAP government will keep everyone safe and keep Singapore in working order,” he said.

As a result of this trust, Singaporeans have also “patiently complied” with “burdensome” safe management measures imposed and understand that changes in plans are hard to avoid given the rapidly changing situation, said Lee.

On Friday, the World Health Organisation (WHO) designated the Omicron variant – also known as B.1.1.529 – as being one “of concern”. WHO said it received its first report of the variant from South Africa on 24 November, with the first confirmed infection having been detected in a sample obtained on 9 November.

Several countries have since imposed entry restrictions on travellers from countries in Southern Africa. Since Friday, Singapore barred entry to long-term pass holders and short-term visitors with a recent travel history to Botswana, Eswatini, Lesotho, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa and Zimbabwe.
