SINGAPORE: A Singaporean woman was sentenced to five months in prison on Friday for hiding her meetings with a male friend from coronavirus contact tracers as she did not want her family to think she was having an affair.
Oh Bee Hiok, 65, met a close friend, 72-year-old Lim Kiang Hong, five times in the weeks before testing positive for COVID-19 in February, but deliberately withheld the information from the health ministry’s contact tracers, court documents said.
