Singapore (VNA) –
Singapore is taking into account some factors to reopen its economy after the COVID-19.

According to Health Minister Gan Kim Yong, the first condition is community cases should fall to zero or single-digit level daily, with very low number of unlinked cases.

It’s equally important to reduce the migrant worker cases over time, he added.

Secondly, the government needs to make an assessment of the situation globally, he went on.

It is necessary to review the rate of transmissions in other countries, as well as their measures to contain the spread of the virus.

Thirdly, Singapore needs to put in place a system that ensures safety when reopening the economy, he said, adding that the country has the ability to further increase the testing capacity up to 40,000 a day from the current 8,000./.
