It was shared on Sunday (April 12) by the Facebook page All Singapore Stuff. “Another Covidiot using his dirty leg to press lift button,” read the caption.

If HDB residents are still worried about touching lift buttons, perhaps they can find some comfort from a statement on April 2 that the Changi Foundation had donated 650 litres of a powerful solution that is capable of self-disinfecting an area for up to 90 days. The coating has been applied to 1.5 million lift buttons in 26,000 HDB lifts around the country.

Powerful disinfectant applied on all HDB lift buttons is effective for 3 months
