The Covid-19 outbreak will continue for some time - a year and maybe longer - said Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong in his second national address on the situation on Thursday.

He said if Singaporeans keep up their guard and take practical precautions to protect themselves and their families, the country will be able to keep its economy going and people will be able to carry on with their daily lives.
