28 November 2020Prof Teo shared in The Straits Times article "More cases may emerge but a major cluster unlikely: Experts" that the reality is that the public health measures that have been imposed are meant to serve two purposes. First, to prevent outbreaks in the community, and second, should there be an outbreak, the spread is slowed down sufficiently to allow contact tracing, testing and quarantining to come in to break any chains of transmission in the community.
