SINGAPORE — Singapore’s government on Thursday said it will start easing Covid-related restrictions as the number of daily infections has declined.
The Southeast Asian country last month tightened social-distancing measures to curb a rise in local Covid-19 infections. Those measures, which include no dining-in at food and beverage outlets and smaller social gatherings, were in place since mid-May.
Starting Monday, Singapore will allow social gatherings of five people — an increase from the current two-person limit.
