Singapore to keep borders open despite new Covid-19 variant

Singapore has learned to adapt and will strive to keep its borders open to the rest of the world even if a new variant of Covid-19 emerges, according to S Iswaran, the city-state's transport minister. Singapore was among the first countries in Asia to open its borders last year. Since then, other restrictions have been progressively removed and Changi Airport is now working to keep up with demand. Iswaran said the nation has learned from its past experiences of dealing with Covid variants. When Omicron hit, Singapore didn't backtrack on its reopening plans, but rather decided to wait and see how things panned out, he told Bloomberg News.
