As the world battles the COVID-19 pandemic, we would like to acknowledge and thank all healthcare personnel in Singapore and around the world for their dedication and valiant and tireless effort in providing the best care for the patients through these difficult times. Your sacrifices are not for naught and as the saying goes, there will be a rainbow at the end of the storm. Until then, let us soldier on and together we will defeat this invisible enemy.
