SINGAPORE, Oct 8 (Reuters) - Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said he will address the country on Saturday noon regarding the local COVID-19 situation and the path to a new normal.

"Tomorrow at 12 noon, I will be addressing Singaporeans on the COVID-19 situation and the path to a new normal," Lee said in his Facebook post on Friday evening.

The Southeast Asia city-state with about 5.7 million population has been reporting records of more than 3,000 daily COVID-19 infections over the past few days, though almost all of them are asymptomatic or mild.
