  • wait wait wait wait wait. at 2:48, "I work with covid patients, and I have not been infected, the mask actually work (in preventing me from contracting the disease)".

    Are you telling me what the government said at the beginning that the mask is to prevent spread not for protection was fake ? Even when they were enforcing all to wear mask recently by PM Lee, he re-emphasized that the mask is prevent spread due to asymptomatic patients (no mention that it protects you from others)

  • I see even MORE people jogging now ! 100% totally maskless…..They feel as though they are a real special breed of people. 100% healhy breed…totally MUST BE exempted from wearing any mask at all ! ( totally selfish !! )……If you must jog, why can't you jog at home using a treadmill. There are countless ways to exercise indoors really effectively too. But NO ! You simply need to show off to other people that are wearing mask that you have more GUTS than them ! Government should make a new rule : Those who get caught not wearing mask ( PROPERLY ) in public, if they really do get infected by the virus and need to use a ventilator, then top priority should definitely not be them ! It should instead be to those who have really been constantly wearing their masks ( PROPERLY ) at all time whenever they are in public places ! These are the REAL singapore heroes !

  • People are running to bubble tea stores, it is apparent these people rather risks their lives for a bottle of bubble tea than to contract covid. It is seriously laughable behavior

  • I guess Singapore is too late, if they do lockdown or community Quarantine earlier just like in Malaysia and Philippines the result wont be this far, but for now this is the price they have to take.

  • FYI, scientifically the hand-held infrared thermometer will work more accurately on dark-colored objects, including dark-colored human skin. This is because light-colored objects or light-colored human skin will emit far less infrared radiations, resulting in lower temperature readings. Another factor is the amount of sweat a person has on his/her face at the time of the measurement; the more sweat a person has on his/her face, the lower the temperature readings will be. As such, it is worth noting that light-colored and sweaty human skin will give results that are, by far (about 10%-20%), less accurate! It is therefore NOT recommended to rely only on infrared thermometer when trying to screen for high-risk individuals in closed and small public spaces. Social Distancing and Stay-At-Home still remain the most effective methods in preventing the spreading of the COVID-19 infection.

  • Question: Is circuit breaker system really works
    1. why till now we still guess if infected belong to essential lot (there should be system being implemented before this event kck off)
    2. If this circuit really works or backfire…Mean more gathering were taking place without detection
    3. Why allow outdoor exercise since govt intention want to put a STOP… (jogging allow not to wear mask)
    4. Reduce Transport Frequency

    Since so much $$ had pumped into circuit…Why not enforce a TOTAL CIRCUIT BREAKER …Near zero contact or face very heavy consequence…With good planning..I believe there ppl out already had a better solution as compare to now
