REUTERS/Chalinee Thirasupa SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Singapore’s prime minister said on Friday that the city-state was well prepared to tackle the Wuhan flu virus, adding that it did not appear to be as deadly as the 2003 Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) pandemic. The Southeast Asian city-state, a global travel hub, on Thursday confirmed its first case of the coronavirus strain, which originated in China, and said another case has preliminarily tested positive. Singapore suffered 33 deaths due to SARS, making it one of the worst hit countries outside China. “We are well prepared, because we have been gearing up for such a situation ever since we dealt with SARS in 2003,” Lee Hsien Loong said in an annual Chinese New Year speech. “MOH (Ministry of Health) has now activated plans to counter the spread of the virus, which so far does not appear to be as deadly as SARS was.” Reporting by John Geddie and Aradhana Aravindan; Editing by Sam Holmes Our Standards: Read more: Reuters Top News
EricCheungwc He can say it only after visiting Wuhan for a day without mask, but not sitting at home in Singapore. razingarizona Oh good, only half of us will die. 阿斗就是阿斗。。。 But with SARS over 35 million people weren’t on lock down 🤔 makes sense 🙄 Well that's a touch then. Think we’ll take a rain check on that
EricCheungwc Time for medical tourism. There will be plenty of plane load with patients from China if they want 👍 This right here is why we don’t trust politicians 🙄 Medical care in Singapore is also good, they’re welcoming you. Pls don't come to Hong Kong. Thank you 🙏🏼 Unfortunately that is of little comfort to the families of those who have died.
SARS having 10% over all and 50% for the elderly.

Wuhan virus 'super spreader' alarms disease detectivesOf all the aspects of the rapidly spreading Wuhan virus, this is perhaps the most alarming: A single patient has infected 14 health care workers. That's what's called a 'super spreader' -- and identifying them is a key element of fighting the virus. Don’t worry. Trump said he has it under control. So we can all relax.

Let’s open up the borders and welcome every disease infected person and every kind of terrorist into America. Some people will just never learn.
