Singapore should be able to relax recently imposed restrictions on social gatherings after two weeks if the local Covid-19 situation continues to improve, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said. "The number of daily cases has come down. Barring another super-spreader or big cluster, we should be on track to bring this outbreak under control," Lee said in a speech.


The current restrictions are to last until June 13. Lee also said he expected two-thirds of residents to have received at least one dose of a vaccine by early July and that contact tracing and testing would be increased and expedited. He said he had received confirmation of faster deliveries of Covid-19 vaccines over the next two months.
