The government is looking at policy models in other countries such as South Korea and Japan to control internet addiction among teenagers and youths including limiting access to internet after midnight.
Deputy Health Minister, Dr Lee Boon Chye said it is important as the National Health and Morbidity Survey 2017 had revealed that 34.9 percent of teenagers between the ages of 13 to 17 are addicted to the internet. They might implement policies where those under 17 years of age are limited in using the Internet, from 12am to 6am every day.
