They added that the Omicron variant may be more transmissible as compared to the Delta and Beta variants, and poses a higher risk of reinfection.

MOH said that Singapore must expect to detect more cases at our borders and in time, within our community.

They also added that there are many questions about the Omicron variant with no clear answers at the moment.

However, the existing Covid-19 vaccines still work against the mutated virus in protecting against severe illnesses.
