Countries Are Now Looking Towards Taiwan To Learn How To Fight Covid-19

And that includes Singapore.

Using What Works

Yes, tightening measures has caused great inconveniences to Singaporeans but at least, they seemed to have work for other countries.

Since the early days, Taiwan has been using technology to help fight the virus, first by integrating databases for Big Data Analytics and using electronic forms for faster immigration clearances.

Singapore is doing that too.

On 23 Mar 2020, the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) said that travellers coming into Singapore must complete their health declarations online before going for immigration clearance.

They can do so via the SG Arrival Card electronic service.

With faster clearance means less crowded immigration halls, which will lead to lesser Covid-19 transmission.

After all, crowding people into the same area is like begging for Covid-19 to strike.

In order to pass the customs into Singapore, you’ll need to show the acknowledgement e-mail either on your mobile device, or a hard copy that you’ve printed.

Data from the service can be used for contact tracing purposes and become part of the traveller’s medical history at local healthcare institutions.

The requirement for submitting health declarations online will start on 27 Mar 2020.

Make Sure You Submit Accurate Information

Now, in case you’re thinking of submitting false declarations…Don’t.

Because for one, you can be persecuted under the Infectious Diseases Act.

And two, starting from 27 Mar 2020, your Stay-Home-Notice will be sent to you via email. So if you’ve entered the wrong email, and you didn’t receive any notification, it’s your fault.

And as we all know, the Singapore government isn’t taking it easy against people who say I don’t know when they breach their SHN.
