Total cases of COVID-19 infections Singapore 2021

As of March 1, 2021, the total number of COVID-19 cases in Singapore amounted to around 59.95 thousand. Singapore had managed to 'flatten the curve' and curb the spread of the novel coronavirus after experiencing a spike in cases between April and July.

Combating the second wave of Covid-19

Singapore imposed a strict lockdown period between April 7 and June 1, which saw the closure of entertainment venues, food establishments, places of worship, non-essential services, and schools. This seemed to have the intended impact, as the number of daily recorded cases started to decrease after the restrictions were put in place. From June 2, these restrictions were gradually lifted, albeit with strict rules governing mask-wearing, contact tracing, and social distancing, such as limits on the size of private gatherings. Those caught flouting these measures face hefty fines, and subsequent offenders could even face jail time.

Bringing the pandemic under control, but at what cost?

With the number of cases dropping back to the single digits, Singapore could be cautiously optimistic that they had brought the pandemic back under control. However, the closure of businesses, compounded by the global restrictions on movement, had had an adverse effect on its economy. Singapore would most likely face its worse recession on record, while the resident unemployment rate had already shown an increase in June. However, with the global economy recovering at a faster pace than expected, Singapore might expect a better prognosis for its economy in the coming months.

Singapore is currently one out of more than 200 countries and territories battling the novel coronavirus. For further information about the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, please visit our dedicated Facts and Figures page.
