Singapore's COVID-19 measure barring visitors from India is not based on nationality: Ong Ye Kung

Singapore's COVID-19 measure barring visitors
from India is not based on nationality:
Ong Ye Kung




Singapore’s move to ทดลอง เล่น สล็อต stop the entry of visitors who have recent
travel history to India is not based on nationality, said Transport Minister
Ong Ye Kung on Monday (Apr 26). 


As of 11.59pm last Friday, all long-term pass holders and short-term visitors
who have travelled to India in the last 14 days are not allowed to enter Singapore.
This includes visitors who transit in India and those who had earlier obtained
approval for entry into Singapore. 


The border measure was implemented amid a spike in COVID-19 infections
in India. On Monday, the country's daily coronavirus cases set a new global record
for the fifth straight day.


With 352,991 new cases, India's total caseload has crossed 17 million.
Deaths rose by a record 2,812 to reach a total of 195,123.


When asked about reports that Indian nationals are going to other countries
before coming to Singapore in a bid to get past the border restrictions,
Mr Ong said: “I think, as a matter of general infection control knowledge,
regardless of your nationality, if you stay in a place long enough, you assume
the risk profile of that place. 


“You may be from another country, but once you stay in a new country for a while,
you assume a new risk profile.”


If the policy is to target Indian nationals, then “something is wrong”, added
the Transport Minister, who was speaking after announcing the new launch date
of the Hong Kong-Singapore air travel bubble.


“But if your policy is to target risk, then for someone from a high-risk country
to move to a lower risk country, stay there for some time, and after that remain
non COVID-positive, remain negative, and then come to Singapore … they have
lowered the risk in that process,” added Mr Ong.
