He went on to explain that the meaning of co-existing with the virus is not that we should fear it and thus implement lockdowns.

Neither is it to lift all our restrictions freely, added Ong, and treat the virus with nonchalance.

Instead, Ong reiterated that the way forward is to take the "middle ground", and that everyone will need to adapt quickly in order to achieve this new "balance" and successfully co-coexist with the disease.

In response to concerns over crowds on public transport, Ong explained that there has not been evidence pointing to Covid-19 transmission on public transport, amongst reported Covid-19 cases so far.

Trains and buses are also very well-ventilated, he added.

His definition of "middle-ground" is highly problematic which is why SG is seeing this situation now.

Ong then answered a question posed by a Zaobao reporter, which questioned if Singapore had "underestimated" the transmissibility of the Delta variant and "overestimated" the protection offered by Covid-19 vaccines.

In response, Ong pointed out that Singapore still has not totally lifted all restrictions, and many tightened measures are still in place.

He added that this was why the government had planned for a preparatory phase, to review if Singapore can handle "maybe 100-200 cases" a day, before slowly opening further.

However, Ong said that the Delta variant "waits for no one", pointing out that it has indeed taken the world by storm.

People have already mentioned... Denmark use endemic strategy and drop by 50%

Then some people point out Singapore two people stay one room. Then my question is why is Singapore two people stay one room to begin with??? Just proves that this country is handicapped and disabled to begin with right?
