SINGAPORE - Safe distancing measures during the Covid-19 pandemic could pose challenges for people with disabilities and others will need to look out for them, said Nominated MP Yip Pin Xiu.

"The images we put out have to be inclusive and enable the independence of persons with disabilities. For example, the current level of SafeEntry QR codes tends to be a bit too high. A consideration could be to place it at varying, easy-to-reach heights, as we have done with many lift buttons."

Digital presentations of arts and culture content on the National Arts Council's channels and the A List website have also drawn more than 6.2 million views.

"Taking into account initiatives by groups such as the Singapore Chinese Orchestra, he said:"If we take into consideration of the other online digital programmes by the arts groups, we should reach more than 10 million online viewers as of today.

He suggested relooking marketing strategies to attract a wider audience, and introducing a digital cultural pass for pay-per-view digital concerts.
