Singapore government assures a stable food supply, amidst Malaysia lockdown

The Minister for Trade and Industry Gan Kim Yong has said there will be ample supplies in Singapore during Malaysia’s two-week lockdown.

Malaysia will be going on a lockdown from June 1 to 14, leaving Singaporean citizens concerned about the supply of food and other essential items coming from its neighbour.

But Minister for Trade and Industry Gan Kim Yong said the Singapore and Malaysian governments are working togehther to ensure a continued flow of imports.

“We are working with Malaysia to ensure the continued flow of essential supplies between our two countries,” Gan said at a multi-ministry task force press briefing.

He advised Singaporeans to buy only what they need in the coming days.

Active COVID-19 cases in Malaysia breached 70,000 by the end of May, with daily cases exceeding 8,000 people.

The June 1 to 14 lockdown is only the first phase of Malaysia’s efforts to curb the spread of the deadly pandemic, to be followed by a month-long "Phase Two" that will allow for the reopening of a few economic sectors.
