Many more Singaporeans are wearing face masks as Singapore and globally report more Covid-19 cases every day or two. A rare few wear double masks, but I don't know how they can breathe. These masks are not breathable.
Probably, they have to lift open the side or bottom of their masks when they can't breath.
"Don't wear face mask if you are well" was the earlier advice from the World Health Organisation and the Singapore Government.
However, on April 4, 2020, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong advised the people to wear face masks when they go out. The Government also gives each citizen a useable face mask to be collected at the Community Centres or Resident Committee areas from April 5 to 12.
In late April, face mask wearing is mandatory.

From April 7 to May 4, 2020, Singaporeans are advised to stay indoors most of the time. Non-essential businesses and government departments will be closed. Singapore is not in a lockdown yet. Keeping your social distance have had resulted in lowering the number of Covid-19 cases.
As fabric face masks must be washed daily when used, it is best to keep 2 more.
