Singapore is now currently in DOSCORN Orange as announced by the Ministry of Health (MOH).
What does DOSCORN Orange mean?
- Additional precautions for large scale events such as temperature taking and increased frequency of cleaning of commonly used areas
- Daily health checks at the workplace
- A limited number of visitors to preschool, social/eldercare services
- All inter-school and external activities to be suspended till the end of March holidays
Let us also continue to be socially responsible and practice personal hygiene. Avoid unnecessary crowds if needed.
Supermarket Shelves Empty
Hours after the announcement of DOSCORN Orange Alert, we’ve received photos of Singaporeans at supermarkets island-wide stocking up on supplies such as tissue paper, instant noodles and canned food.
There are super long queues at supermarkets as well.
Queue seen at Tai Seng NTUC
No Luck Online As Well
If you’re thinking of buying your stuff online, you may face some difficulties. As of 10.00 pm SGT, most of the toilet paper brands on Redmart has been marked as sold out.
It almost feels like an apocalypse has happened in Singapore.
A reminder for us to not be overly kiasu, and only purchase what is needed. Remain calm and let’s fight this virus together.
Stay safe this season everyone.
