Abstract: Since December 2019, the ongoing global health emergency caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in 134 million confirmed cases and claimed 2.9 million lives worldwide. In these times, there is a need to examine Singapore’s performance in communicating emergency risk information to its people, which is quintessential in saving lives, livelihoods, and economies. Using the World Health Organisation’s integrated model for emergency risk communication which involves five domains, this paper aims to elucidate the robustness of Singapore’s emergency risk communication strategy so that shortcomings may be identified and improved upon for future iterations. Analysing Singapore’s emergency risk communication in each domain individually, it was found that the strategies employed under the Public Communication domain catered well to the needs of its target audiences, and were more diverse as compared to other domains. However, other domains were left relatively lacking in depth and nuance, hence leaving room for improvement.
