The Senior Minister (Security) said that among the offences committed were failure to register details when entering premises (223), not wearing face masks (115), no social distancing (63) and other offences (74).
"Of those nabbed on May 10,454 individuals were slapped with compounds while the remaining 21 were remanded," he said on Tuesday (May 11).
He said the task force monitoring standard operating procedure compliance checked 78,305 premises on Monday, including supermarkets, restaurants, factories, banks, government offices and hawkers.
