Happy Lunar New Year!
2020 to 2021 were uncharacteristically difficult, uncertain, and stressful times – no thanks to a microscopic, miniscule organism - SARS-Cov-2.
The zodiac sign tiger is a symbol of strength, exorcising evils, and braveness. Let’s hope that the tiger knocks out SARS-Cov-2 and we can all return to normality.
On the adjudication front, the number of adjudication applications lodged in 2021 was around 340 while the number of adjudication review applications was around 20. The total numbers are markedly lower than pre-covid numbers which hovered above the 500 mark. This perhaps a sign of the effectiveness of COTMA.
Wishing everyone a healthy, happy and prosperous year of the Tiger.
