I would like to commend the authorities and frontliners for their ongoing efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic, especially with regards to the current wave, where the number of new cases have been kept relatively low, due to effective contact tracing, people staying at home and measures such as movement control, increased testing capacity and availability of additional vaccination slots, which have all been highly effective towards curbing the spread of the virus.
It was pleasing to recently read that the quarantine period for fully vaccinated citizens and residents entering the country has been reduced. However, have the authorities considered a home quarantine option for fully vaccinated people, who fulfil certain criteria?
Some countries, such as Australia, Singapore and the United Kingdom, have done away with the need to quarantine people who have been fully vaccinated.
Continuing with some form of quarantine may still be wise, since fully vaccinated people can still contract and spread COVID-19 and no quarantine may allow more breakthrough infections to occur and place more pressure on the healthcare system.
The decision to continue with quarantine was a prudent decision. However, could the authorities consider a home quarantine option for fully vaccinated citizens and residents entering the country?
