Estimated population of Singapore
citizens and permanent residents - 3,163,500 as at June 1998.
Other ethnic groups 1.4%
Working Language: English
Other official languages: Mandarin,
Malay & Tamil.
Planners expect the
population of Singapore to reach 5.5 million by 2040 or 2050, taking
into account an expected increase in the number of foreigners working
here. From just 3 million in 1990, the number has swelled to 3.9 million
today, including 700,000 foreigners.
A high-level working
committee is now looking at ways to encourage more couples to have
babies. Demographer Saw Swee Hock says that if the fertility rate
continues to stay below two, the population here, minus the foreigners,
will peak at about 3.3 million in 2025 and then begin to drop.
Singapore's water is
clean and safe to drink from the tap. There is no need to boil it.

centres, kindergartens, play groups, enrichment centres, special
schools, foreign system schools and learning centres which cater
to children five and below reopen in Singapore today
after two weeks of closure by the Environment Ministry due to
the Foot, Hand and Mouth Disease scare.
However, all wading pools in schools, public swimming pools and
condominiums, and play areas in shopping centres, fast food
areas, etc, where children gather, will remain closed till
further notice from the Hand Foot and Mouth (HFMD) Taskforce.
The Ministry of Community Development and Sports and the
Ministry of Education have instructed all operators of childcare
centres, kindergartens, enrichment centres, special schools,
foreign system schools and learning centres to do the following:
Screen all children
attending the centre to see if they are unwell. Isolate
immediately any child found to be unwell, or exhibiting symptoms
of HFMD, at the sick bay. Notify immediately the child's parents
and the Quarantine and Epidemiology Department at the Ministry
of Environment, either via Tel 7319181 or Fax 7348287, 7319368
when a child is found to be unwell. Continue to clean and
disinfect daily, the premises and the toys the children play
It is hoped
the worst of the FHMD has already passed us by here in
received our 500,000th hit on 21 Sep 2000!

In lightning raids yesterday
morning, crack police units arrested three dangerous criminals who were

later recovered two guns - a revolver and an automatic pistol - and ten
bullets from one of the suspects' flats. The motive for both killings
was said to be robbery.
