“And we must never assume that we have seen the end of the pandemic, and that victory is in sight, or that we can relax and start letting our guard down,” he said.

The minister was speaking at the 30th anniversary celebrations of the Singapore Sikh Education Foundation (SSEF) at the Singapore Khalsa Association, where he was the guest of honour.

His message comes a year after Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong addressed the nation to announce circuit breaker measures to curb the spread of the virus.

Mr Wong noted that Singapore has made good progress in bringing down the number of infections here since it exited the circuit breaker on June 2 last year.

“So let us not waste the sacrifices that all of us have made over this difficult period, by relaxing too early and letting our guard down too quickly,” he said.
