From June 15, all constructions workers will be allowed to resume work without testing. The Building Construction Authority (BCA) said companies will need only apply for approval.
The high-risk move came after Singapore reported a surge in new community cases of 18 yesterday, three times the weekly average. The average number of unlinked infection over a week has also jumped to 4 a day.
Singapore reported 347 new cases today, with the bulk being foreign workers. The Singapore government failed to bring down infection rate in foreign worker dormitories despite isolating them more than two months ago on April 7th.
Ruling party ministers are rushing to reopen the economy regardless the infection rate, just so they could call for the General Election in July. The PAP dictatorship has been playing down its culpability of the disastrous management on the coronavirus outbreak.
Many countries are seeing single digit or zero daily new cases, while Singapore is still reporting hundreds each day.
