YengkhomNikkita hello Nikkita how are you want to be your friend heard Singaporean are friendly people lol hope to hear from you soon Brakes not service, car will crash. Bad strategy, put old folks at great risk. Singapore did everything right except wearing mask. Just because you feel heathy doesn’t mean you don’t carry the virus
Whoever that’s sick please don’t go to work SG is adopting Mitigation strategy as advised by medical professionals to flattenthecurve with various game theory scenarios. This strategy applies “brakes” gradually according to event triggers, leading to a long term game which hopes to drag it out till a vaccine is found.
Poor thing. Must be some crappy staff or visitor that import the virus to the old folks home. MOH please come clean Excuse before was that most cases were imported. So no lock down, travel ban or wear mask directive. I guess SG has to meet Italy n USA's desperation before more stringent measures like wear mask in public n stay home order would be put into action...but by then, it's too late...
Wait...Wait....Wait... Reached 1000 Covid-19 cases. Approx 500 active cases/hospitalized (50%) Approx 500 discharge to home or isolation (50%) Keep calm everyone. Someone want to commit mass murder at old folks home Shame on anyone who decries Singapore’s effort to minimise the spread of this virus. We have been involved since this started and considering the curve has remained pretty flat with so few unfortunate deaths to date. We should all be following the good advice.
Oh my...this is how many dormitory already? With how crowded they are house together, the case number will easily shoot up sky high Seems like the government still urging the citizens to wear mask only when they are sick. With this increasing trend, dramatic measures have to impose. This is giving me so much anxiety.....
this FT dormitory is a time bomb as FTs like to 'social' alot... Will Singapore 🇸🇬 execute lock down period like Malaysia? Opportunist always waiting for their chances , keep waiting for that lockdown . This might only be the beginning. Take action and make it a personal habit to help stop the spread: - Hand hygiene - Social distancing - Stay home except for work, helping others, visiting a dr (call first) or for essentials - Dining & surface hygiene at home Image:SiouxsieW
Not surprised. Since our 🇸🇬 govt still take watch n see attitude with their ‘brakes’. Other countries who lockdown already see good signs. Our country with increase of local unlinked cases. Hiazz.. only one sentence to say ‘Disappointed with their strategies, it’s not working!’ Which mf bring the virus to the old age home?
Should wait no more LETS GOOOO Sigh
