Mr Ong said the nationwide vaccination rate was slightly more than 40 per cent when large Covid-19 clusters broke out in mid-July.

It was therefore necessary to tighten restrictions and revert to phase two (heightened alert) to prevent further transmission of the virus, he said.

"As a result, we prevented a possible uncontrollable rise in infections, severe illnesses and deaths."

However, Singapore is also starting to see a few fully vaccinated individuals who have become severely ill, he observed.

"Unfortunately, this is inevitable. As the great majority of our population is now vaccinated... more people will get infected and some of them may have pre-existing illnesses and conditions that make them more susceptible to severe illnesses."

Even so, the country's current situation shows several positive signs. These include a stable number of daily infections, with more infected individuals isolated before detection or being infected at home, Mr Ong said.
