Singapore has banned all social gatherings as part of its latest restrictions to help combat Covid-19, according to a news release on the health ministry’s website.
This includes both public and private gatherings.
The rule, which applies to families and friends not living together, was passed by Parliament on Tuesday and imposed from Wednesday.
The rule is part of a “Circuit Breaker” plan in the country’s fight against the virus and will be imposed until at least May 4.
Singapore has reported at least 1,481 coronavirus cases and six deaths, according to a tally from Johns Hopkins University.
