No need to panic buy

Singapore has implemented tighter measures to protect Singaporeans

But there is no need to panic buy or hoard

🥚🥬 We have adequate supply of food and essentials

Our supply channels remain open

🙅‍♀ Do not spread unverified information

Take tighter measures seriously

🚫 Do not attend “Farewell” events at entertainment venues tonight

👥 Large congregations will undermine our fight against COVID-19

👍 Be socially responsible. Don’t put yourself and those around you at risk of contracting the virus

Stay safe and stay healthy everyone!
