Use electronic tagging for home quarantine

About 30,000 work permit holders from China will be returning to Singapore. They are asked to be take leave and to stay at home on quarantine for 14 days.

There is the risk that some of them may not observe the home quarantine. They may move about the community and pose a risk to the public.

There are insufficient places in a quarantine center to handle such a large number of people.

I suggest that people under home quarantine be tagged electronically. This will allow the authority to check on their movements and ensure that they observe the home quarantine.

Electronic tagging is normally used for prisoners who are on home detention. It may have a negative connotation. However, we have no choice but to implement it as an alternative to detention in a quarantine center.

I hope that the people placed under home quarantine will understand the necessity for this measure.

  • Use Istana lah:

    Where to find 30,000 of those devices?

    But, this is a great opportunity to open up Istana for quarantine use. Can put all 30,000 people there.

    This is a great chance of those elites to see how Singapore will be like with 10 million population. Otherwise, everyday, they look at the Istana big open garden and don’t feel the crowd.

    xenophobia !!!!

    when the H1N1 which started from US infected the world, nobody called it an American virus and demand that the white shit be barred from entry.

    when this corona virus happened, though its not yet even half as lethal as the H1N1, nor killed a fraction of what H1N1 did, everyone calls it “wuhan” virus, fingers point to China and everything Chinese becomes pariah.

    Thousands of innocent Chinese died from H1N1, but no Chinese official blame anyone from the west or anyone outside for the damage. Now you have white shit defacing the Chinese flags, attacking innocent anyone that remotely looks Chinese.

    The chinese are proactive and quick to shut down cities voluntarily, the white shit did not even do a fraction of what the Chinese did during the H1N1 crisis.

    We Asians need to work together to fight these kinds of bias and discrimination.

    Yet now, our beloved senile uncle tan is suggesting to treat the poor folks who were infected (not by their own choice) to be treated as criminals or prisoners. To tag them like one.

  • Compassion vs Common Sense:

    The entry ban should stay in place as long as the threat of infection remains out there. Those who entered earlier should be allowed to stay for the duration of their visas and the possibility of extension if they co-operate and come in for blood test. If tested positive, they will receive treatment. The govt should set a dateline after which anyone refusing to co-operate and are found to carry the disease should be sent back on the next flight to China. The govt should not put the lives of Singaporeans at risk when the numbers in China are still climbing by the thousands each day.

    H1N1 didn’t start from US, it started in Mexico.
    We know SARS and Wuhan Virus started from China.

    We also know CCP framed and blamed innocent chinese citizens for transmitting the virus from eating wildlife, which is just blantant lies.

    CCP also killed and rape demonstrators in HK.

    CCP also threated to invade Taiwan.

  • Who is Right?:

    Our ministars have very high regard of these good and cheap foreign talents and import them to displace stupid fussy local workers.

    Why would these work permit holders move around while on quarantine?
    They are expected to maintain high standard and exercise some social responsibility.

    TKL is either worrying too much or he disagrees with our rich clowns.

  • JustAskingForTrouble:

    Shouldnt bring them back till the disease stabilises.
    Why risk infecting more people in our country.
    Some landlords(dunno locals or foreigners) who evicted some prcs who are on home quarantine got penalised-wont be allowed to rent out their rooms anymore..
    Its highly likely that out of the 30k returning to their jobs,there would be carriers of the disease..
    Will the health services be able to cope?

    aiyoh. sooner or later, they are going to be also expensive lar ?

    like any pricing of product, first penetration of market, then cannibalization of competition and then raise prices after competition is gone ?

    in the context of FTs and daft sinkies in sinkie land, once daft sinkies have been replaced (cannibalized by FTs), FTs will further build and grow their competency (got work got skill, no work no skill) and the ‘final solution’ (figuratively speaking lar) will be met – and the self fulfilling truism that daft sinkies are choosy, expensive and not talented (propaganda spewed out by a collection of hirers, bosses, white idiotic monkey gang and fellow FTs themselves) will have been achieved ????

To keep them entertained, also can also construct 3-storey club house, pastured golf course, swimming pool, gym room and massage room so that they won’t think of roaming around in shopping malls and housing estates.

    The naming has nothing to do with race, it’s just a convenient reference.
    You are sensitive and over reacting, totally immersed in typical communist propaganda of inciting hatred, blaming others to cover-up it’s own evil and failures.

    The mexican flu was first called as such until it spread to become a pandemic.
    Haven’t you heard of Spanish flu and middle East respiratory syndrome MERS?
    Haven’t you heard of Russian and Indian Swine flu?
    You obviously not heard of Dickensian diseases or JEV, Japanese virus.

    Go and search the internet for wuhan coronavirus, it’s all over the news and Wikipedia. You are going to accusing everyone of this? stop being ridiculous.

  • Cannot Rent Room Anymore ?:

    The govt will not allow HDB owners to rent out their room in future if they disallow the existing tenants who return from China to come back.

    So what if cannot rent out rooms anymore ? Its better to be safe than take the risks of them infecting the rest of your family resulting in more deaths later on.

    PAP is just worried about these people and do not care about local citizens being infected. Vote PAP Out.
