@L.ynette De March Chelin, It's like the influenza you have to live with it and stay home if you are ill. Easier said than done!!

However in Singapore they are yrying to live with it despite the tightening of border controls and follow mandatory quarantine at their designated facilities.

Singapore takes its pandemic-control regulations tightly and will not be afraid to enforce them. Quarantine violations carry a penalty of a fine of up to S$10,000 ($7,565), up to six months in jail, or both. So beware!!!
