Covid-19: Healthcare system still under pressure as hospitalised patients, ICU cases continue to rise, says MOH
It’s already overwhelming with so many cases and most pitiable are the Health care Frontlines Workers who are facing the blunt of it all and infected victims that might be neglected due to these miscommunication processes. An immediate restraining decisions to ringfence vital!!! Expected , 81% vaccinated and if no underlying disease , rest at home and will not die . No need alarm . Only for those who do not vaccinate , 50 years old also will die . Vaccination is key
Why does put local cases number as headlines which is not inclusive of import cases e.g. here 1453 and confuses readers when reference to zaobaosg 联合早报 (Chinese news) as well as MOH? From MOH: the Ministry of Health has detected a total of 1,457 new cases. This is happening.....cos health protocols r not followed rigidly....all becomes tidak pa attitudes. N plse people it is not becos of opening up.
What a mess. Out of control already still no hard actions. 3. Abolish SHN policy in the start of 2022 after sg population is fully vaccinated. Focus on vaccinations,PCR and antigen tests for the next 2 years. End all restrictions in the start of 2022. 1. local population who is vaccinated should be allowed to travel with having to serve SHN at home with PCR and antigen tests to be conducted at due intervals. 2.vaccinated foreigners who do not live in Singapore should serve SHN at hotels with regular pcr and antigen tests.
Singapore should move forward.instead of counting cases,count your number if vaccinations, PCR and antigen tests and open up your borders.this covid will never go away.we should learn to live with it.
