Bridging the digital divide was a “key issue” raised by Singaporeans at conversations on how to forge a better future post-COVID-19, said Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat.

Speaking at the launch of the Smart Nation & U 2021 event, Mr Heng also noted the role of digital technology in Singapore’s fight against COVID-19, such as the use of TraceTogether and Safe Entry to facilitate the tracing of close contacts of confirmed cases, as well as the use of virtual meetings to conduct business and keep in touch with loved ones.

As of Friday, Singapore has reported a total of 60,080 COVID-19 cases.
