SINGAPORE: Singapore has contributed 100,000 doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine as part of bilateral cooperation with Brunei to tackle the ongoing pandemic, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) said on Saturday (Aug 20).
“This contribution is part of both governments’ intent to deepen cooperation and extend mutual support to combat this pandemic together,” said MFA.Singapore’s High Commissioner to Brunei Heng Aik Yeow handed over the vaccines to Brunei's health minister Mohd Isham Jaafar on Thursday.
Earlier this week, Singapore announced that it would launch vaccinated travel lanes with Brunei and Germany.
Under the travel lanes, fully vaccinated travellers departing from Germany or Brunei can enter Singapore without serving a stay-home notice.
They must, however, undergo multiple COVID-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests – a pre-departure test within 48 hours of the scheduled flight, an on-arrival test at Changi Airport, and post-arrival tests on days three and seven at a designated clinic in Singapore.
