Everyday u walk past infected or incubated person with virus , u also dont know one la , as long u do those hygiene routines , u be safe , be vigilent , nothing to be afraid at . At this rate, Bedok is the Singapore version of New Jersey. Especially since delivery to these supermarkets daily might risk chance of infection, all these delivery companies should stop work on the same day so they can clean their factories and lower risk of disinfection.
Supermarkets especially those running 24 hours are gathering points for people everywhere and a lot of contact is made. Even delivery staff from afar will be at these places. It might be better if all supermarkets close a day a week to disinfect. Not even delivery is allowed. What’s the point of social distancing only when queue up? Groceries shoppers hv to stand close to choose items and touch items to see its freshness. Suggest shoppers to hv temperature check, wear mask n gloves for precautions. Otherwise, if things happen hv to throw all items.😬
At least we will avoid Bedok Mall area. Social distancing.
