It’s 20 May 2020, and we’re less than two week—

Oh, well. Sorry. And if you’ve lost hope on ever getting out of this Circuit Breaker, you’re not alone. After all, remember: Phase One is as long as how long we expected the Circuit Breaker to last when PM Lee first went on stage to tell us about the bad news.

If anything, we now know how our Malaysian friends feel.

In other words, stop planning for Bak Kut Teh in hawker centres, stop thinking that it’ll be okay and let your mental health rot as Singapore aims for an A* grade instead of being okay with an A- grade.

Even when numbers seem promising today, though.

Today, there are 570 cases.

This means we now have 29,364 cases in Singapore.

Out of these, 2 are Singaporeans or Singapore PRs. Yesterday, there was only 1.

On average, based on yesterday’s numbers, the number of new cases in the community has decreased, from an average of 6 cases per day in the week before, to an average of 3 per day in the past week. The number of unlinked cases in the community has also decreased, from an average of 2 cases per day in the week before, to an average of 1 per day in the past week.

But does it matter now?

Yes, of course, though I won’t blame you if you’re sleeping through the numbers now.

“Exit” of Circuit Breaker to Phase One from 2 June 2020

Yesterday, it was finally confirmed that we won’t be extending our Circuit Breaker, but we’ll be moving to Phase One post Circuit Breaker.

There would be three phases after Circuit Breaker:

So, what’s going to happen in Phase One?

Here’s a list of the more important things to take note of:

  • Most Shops Still Cannot Open
  • Certain Businesses Can Now Operate
  • Dine-In Still Not Allowed
  • Most Offices Can Open
  • Still No Social Gathering
  • Can Visit Parents or Grandparents
  • Basic Training in SPF, SAF and SCDF Will Resume Even Earlier
  • Schools Reopen…in a Weird Way

You can read more about each point here.

If you think it sounds just like the Circuit Breaker period, you’re not alone: netizens have pointed that out, too.

So if you ever think that cabin fever is something the authorities have thought of, perish that thought and please get used to Maggi Mee.
