Conclusion

So is this a good thing?

Despite Singapore having record-breaking COVID-19 cases numbers, they decided to reduce the number of days for SHN.

We absolutely love this further cut of SHN to 10 days. With this intention in mind, it will be a much better option than staying 14 days in the hotel.

Under those circumstances and high vaccination rates, I believe that eventually Singapore will cut down the SHN even more.
