Voting is under way in Singapore's general election, under the cloud of the coronavirus pandemic and its economic fallout.

 

The small city state is one of a handful of countries to hold a vote during the pandemic so far.

 

Strict safety measures are in place, with voters wearing gloves and masks and given timed voting slots.

 

Singapore has been one of the worst hit countries in the Asia-Pacific region, with more than 45,000 cases.

 

As large scale gatherings and events are deemed a high risk during the pandemic, only a few countries have gone ahead with national elections during the past months.
