As protection against the COVID-19 virus and to facilitate the return of all students to school, the Ministry of Education (MOE) should provide all desks with a Plastic Protective Desk Shield, similar to those used in South Korean high schools

These plastic shields are cheap and easy to erect on students' desks. Students can clean the screen at the beginning and end of the day with sanitizing wipes to be doubly safe.

- COVID-19 Mass Testing

Furthermore, to prevent a Second Wave of COVID-19 infections, all people who are coming into contact with many people throughout the day (Employed adults/Students/Teachers etc) should be COVID-19 tested to confirm they are COVID-19 negative.

This can be carried out with the Serology Antibodies test which is fast (results within 15 minutes) and cheaper than the COVID-19 PCR test (results may take up to 2 days and costs 8 times more). More information on the pros & cons of COVID-19 testing and latest updates can be found here.

Authorities in Wuhan, China were able to mass test 11 million people within 9 days. Singapore has 949 Public Health Preparedness Clinics (PHPC) with Ministry of Health Pandemic Safety protocols, ready for mass testing.
