COVID-19: More than 450,000 contact-tracing devices to be distributed to migrant and local workers

CNA, Singapore, 16 October 2020 - SINGAPORE: More than 450,000 contact-tracing devices will be distributed to all migrant and local workers living or working in dormitories, as well those at worksites in the construction, marine shipyard and process sectors, said the authorities on Friday (Oct 16).
