Ong spoke to Lianhe Zaobao at the 30th annual general meeting of the CDAC and said that many people travel overseas during the school holidays and that the increase in infections here could be related to that.

He did, however, say that he doesn’t think this wave of infections will be worse than the one in February that was caused by the BA.2 Omicron subvariant.

Ong said that he had earlier mentioned that the next wave could take place around July or August, but it’s now here a little earlier possibly due to the June school holidays.

He added that MOH will continue monitoring the situation, and stressed the importance of ensuring hospitals have enough support.
