Up to five fully vaccinated members of the same household will be allowed to dine out together from Nov 10, said the authorities on Monday (Nov 8).
The multi-ministry task force tackling Covid-19 said that the number of cases in hospitals and proportion of those with serious illness has remained stable.
The weekly Covid-19 infection growth rate has been below one for the past five days as well. Sunday’s rate was 0.81.
The infection rate refers to the ratio of community cases in the past week over the week before. A weekly infection growth rate that is more than one shows that the number of weekly Covid-19 cases is still increasing.
The Health Ministry said the overall utilisation rate of the intensive care unit was at 69.9 per cent on Sunday.
With the improvement in case numbers and hospital utilisation, some measures will be carefully eased from Nov 10.
