Wet markets around Singapore are still seeing huge crowds three days before the start of Chinese New Year.

The Straits Times was at the wet markets in Kovan, Chong Pang and Potong Pasir on Tuesday morning (Feb 9) and some customers said they had to queue for more than two hours.

Safe distancing measures did not appear to be observed in some queues, said infectious diseases specialist Dr Leong Hoe Nam.
