The Big Story Ep 84: Covid-19 reinfection cases: Expert on finding bright spots amid grim reality 8:09 mins Synopsis: This is a special episode of The Straits Times' video series The Big Story. The past week has delivered a Covid-19 shocker to Singapore, not just because of the increase in community cases, but also the infections in people who had been vaccinated or who had been previously infected. Dr Leong Hoe Nam, an infectious diseases specialist at the Rophi Clinic, discusses with The Big Story hosts Hairianto Diman and Olivia Quay, the grim reality that Covid-19 will never be completely eradicated. He also weighs in on the US' announcement that fully vaccinated Americans can be unmasked when exercising, dining and socialising outdoors in small groups.
