Fake news that Singaporeans panicking about shortage of masks

Singaporeans are not picking up their free masks.

When I read that each Singapore household would receive four surgical face masks via 89 Community Centres (CCs) and 654 Residents’ Committee (RC) centres, I tot we would soon know whether S’poreans are genuinely concerned about the shortage of the masks.

Or whether the comments on social media and the internet about the desperate of S’poreans afraid of the Wuhan virus looking in vain for masks are nothing but astro-turfing by the usual anti-PAP paper activists and cybernuts playing up the absence of masks in the shops as incompetence on the part of the PAP govt.

The evidence, so far, is that these anti-PAP types lied about the concerns of ordinary S’poreans

When the Hougang Community Club opened its doors at 2pm on Saturday (Feb 1) for the first day of mask collection, there were as many volunteers waiting as there were residents in line.

“We had about 10 to 20 people in the queue in the first hour so we cleared that very fast,” said Community Club Management Committee chairman for Hougang SMC Joel Leong. “It was a very small queue … We haven’t seen a big crowd (in the first two hours).”

These scenes were similar to those at other distribution centres across the island, during a largely uneventful first day of mask collection for members of the public.

Of course, this could be fake news from the constructive nation-building CNA. But I doubt it. Ever since the really bad haze we had in 2013 (Remember this incident P Ravi’s reposting: What the govt should have done?), there is anecdotal evidence that the 60-70% of S’poreans who vote for the PAP have been prepared: some masks are stored away, ready for use.


Plenty of masks

Haze: PAP govt cares, they really do

————————————————————-

Whatever, the attempt by the anti-PAP paper activists and cybernuts to use the Wuhan virus to show that the PAP govt is incompetent has failed. Worse they were caught lying.

And with a GE later this yr, the serious Oppo (Wankers’ Party , SDP sans Mad Dog and Tan Cheng Bock’s PSP) needs these anti-PAP paper activists and cybernuts like they need a hole in the head.

More evidence that these anti-PAP paper activists and cybernuts do not wish S’pore well.

Btw, my advice is to pick-up the free masks, and store them away for future use. Don’t know about you, but I can smell the haze

    How do you differentiate fear-mongering and a genuine sincere concern to alert relatives and friends of something you heard or read that you feel could be credible?

  • Partial truth?:

    Yes although still early.
    The few making alot noises here who dont represent all 31% however are making the 31% look bad , at least infront of 69%.

    If one move around from last weekend until today, do one notice many people wearing mask?

    Yes , but it’s something like 30 to 40 ( no masks ) versus 1 ( with mask ).

    Even J Teo and wong chee men visited China without masks. Is opposition wearing masks ? PSP otherwise but WP meet the people session wearing mask ? Muz update.

  • obey / follow the advice:

    //If one move around from last weekend until today, do one notice many people wearing mask?//

    aiyoh ? does it mean then that many daft sinkies (perhaps 70% or so) simply (or “blindly” ???) obey / follow the advice (or recommendation or whatever) from the white idiots (do not need to wear if well) ????

    if you have a friend who is a doctor in public service, give the person a call and ask about the alert level by MOH to doctors.

    no leave allowed. all Saturdays Sundays are full working days.

    it means the pap knows more than it is telling and it is irresponsibility to the utmost to tell sheep to continue as is when MOH has already upped the alert level.

    one more thing. we, talking about we ourselves, live in over priced HDB rental unit. we hope everyone who takes the lift up or down with us in our over priced HDB rental block is clean and not infected. maybe you are blinded by pap BS. just one block kenna, there is not enough beds anywhere in Singapore to host.

    and the blocks are so closed to one another. just one block kenna, the who ffffing pap Singapore sure kenna. is that what you want?

  • Partial truth?:

    Firstly i know no doctor friend.

    Secondly What u said maybe true and i reiterate although too early. But then again how come PSP Dr Tan never wear mask in his lunch session ? He sure have many medical friends or even ex peers colleagues from the gov to advise him ? So Dr Tan set bad example and sabo the people or all his friends sabo him ?

    Thirdly so many WP fans here so far none answer if WP meet the people session wear mask or not ?

    Four , i understand you have anxiety, fear or phobia your HDB block neighbors may kena and spread to you. I think its fair for you to admit to yourself you are kiasi then next play safe just wear mask whenever you desire indoors or outdoors and carry out your daily activities as usual. Kiasu you can even sleep with your mask on.

    Or is it everybody never wear mask but you alone wear mask you sibei paiseh wait tio laugh at ? That ludicrous.

    There’s no wrong or crime in it, Nobody can say anything. Even if they judge or talk or laugh at you just ignore them.

  • Go see yourself:

    What shortage of masks?
    Hello they are clearing the supermarket shelves lah.
    Take a drive to your supermarket now and see for yourself what is going on.
    Looks like every man for himself.
    The authorities should have foreseen this coming.
    A plan should be enforced to control/limit food purchase/distribution.

    Perhaps that’s why the stores were packed with people – rushing for groceries before they disappear from the shelves! Now that people know the stores at LIttle India still have abundance, they will all flock over there.

  • More masks for those that need:

    Need to find a way to give more masks to those families that need it.
    4 pcs is not enough for them and they can’t buy from the local pharmacy store.
    Maybe can get more from the Poly Clinics ?

    What “for the 1st time”? This Cynical Idiot has been told to keep his CB mouth shut by many readers here because he writes as though he is some kind of experts when in actual fact, he’s just an empty vessel ranting and trying to entice people to read his blog. TRE is the only platform with the idiotic moderator accommodating him despite many readers here fucking him left and right. But CI is the most thick-skinned MF I have ever seen. He didn’t mind getting fucked left and right as long as you read his articles. Worse than a desperate prostitute telling every man “screw me, whack me never mind, just pay me!”

    He even challenged me to donate $10k (because I said before that’s a small amount to me) to shut his mouth. But I told him I would rather see TRE close down than spending money because of him. I said he is not even worth a piece of my shit!

    That’s why TRE has been begging desperately for readers to donate and when I see the Donation Update coloumn, the donated amount has remained at $5,190 since April last year! Meaning for the past 10 months, nobody cares a damn if TRE is closing down because of this Cynical Shit.
