Get ready for food rationing

The minister for health issued DORSCON orange. It led to a panic with many people rushing to buy and stockpile food. What would happen when we get DORSCON red?

I suggest that the govt starts preparation for food rationing. It should work like this.

a) The govt has access to stockpiles of essential food. They are kept in SAF army camps.

b) When rationing starts, the food are packed in boxes representing two weeks supply for one person. These are of non perishable food, such as rice, sugar, noodles. These rations are provide free of charge.

c) The food are distributed using SAF trucks to the residents at collection points, which are at the HDB blocks or condo blocks.

d) The residents are notified of the time of distribution. They come with their NRIC and collect the boxes for their household. Those who cannot come can authorize a neighbor to collect for them or can keep the coupons for collecting in another fortnight’s time.

e) As the distribution is highly decentralized, there is no need to handle large crowds and long queues.

When the essential items are taken care off, there is no need for people to panic and rush for food. They can buy other supplies, such as vegetables and fruits, from the traditional sources.

If they need more than the rations provided by the govt, they can buy them from the shops and pay the normal retail price.

I hope that this is a useful suggestion.

  • SARS got 200+ infected and killed 33 also no go red, what makes you think just 100 nia can go red?

    My take is that even if multiply the current figure by another 10 times and add a number of dead it won’t go to red also because of $$$$$$$

    If go red means many shops closes, etc etc etc and the whole city will be on lock down.

    Then no $$$ liao to collect, not PAP style I say.

    What think you?\

  • tan kin lian the pea brained:

    1, there is no need to ration anything. as long as everyone wears mask whenever opens house door, before stepping out, everyone shall be okay. it is only when kenna then put on mask that is the problem.

    2, so much so the proposition by tan kin lian, instead of rationing food, should be the complete removal of all pap Ljs and pap Cbs since they have bungled everything in great Singapore since 2004.

    3, when pap is removed, we shall see to it the tan kin lian pea brained type shall not have any say in the matters of New Government, since tan kin lian pea brained type no better than pap the S$m thieving type.

    Should ever food rationing be conducted, NEVER allow grasslooters to distribute. They are the a first frontline most greedy & arrogant looters. Remember the Australia free food festival, all their kakilangs went first.

    I am so grateful that TKL didn’t become the president. My goodness, how did he extrapolate the current situation to one which we need to start rationing food. There are so many more steps to go before that is even necessary.

  • NotMyProblem:

    This PAP government is not so much worry about the virus. When PAP government said “enough” and “sufficient” for everything, it meant these things are stockpiled inside the ivory tower.

    To give 4 pcs free mask is to show this government cares. You only look at the masks but cannot use them.

    This government is more worry that the 30,000 PRC workers cannot return. All those MOM’s requirement is only to show that the government is in control.

    Trust this PAP government at your peril.

    First and foremost we have imbeciles making the island a foreign trashbin.

    Next we have 70% citizens making sure the imbeciles keep doing their crap.

    Then we have individuals going around screaming ‘we are all going to starve and die’ the moment they run out of toilet paper. Plus the solution they advocate is always for the useless government to start becoming more communist – if that is possible.

    No wonder $G is f**ked.

  • @ tan kin lian the pea brained:

    But all opposition parties never advise or insist wearing masks outdoors or even indoors. Only concerns are raised.

    Even WP meet the people never wear mask. I went and checked opposition constituencies, hougang mall and hawker center , Aljunied coffee shops and hawker centers, …

    Majority also never wear masks.

    we hope you are not pap IB or pap supporter.

    first, other than WP, no other OPPO is in parleement. moreover pap mediacorpse and pap states times are pap controlled. so how to put in advice or insist on anything other than express concern? please stop being sheep.

    second, other than Town Council, distribution of masks not under control of WP in OPPO wards, hougang mall and hawker centre, Aljunied coffee shop. so how can fault WP the best OPPO for Singaporeans in Aljunied and Hougang?

    want to blame, blame the pap RC CCCCC CCCC CCC CC C chairmen chairwomen for not doing their jobs right and since pap says no mask unless kenna of course these pap RC CCCCC CCCC CCC CC C chairmen chairwomen don’t encourage anyone in OPPO wards, hougang mall and hawker centre, Aljunied coffee shop to wear mask.

    good try. but wrong from the start. because even in OPPO wards, the only tool for WP to propagate is via expression of concern since pap corners distribution of mask even in OPPO wards.

    we think you are pap IB or 70% sheep or simply evil in heart in what you are saying. we shall add you in the curse list. from morning to night we curse everyone in your family kenna. more than this, we curse you Lj rot your Cb smell your sons slave to pap and your daughter prostitutes geylang.

    Those never wear masks because they believe the advice given.

    They are also aware that wearing masks is not foolproof. Between the surgical mask and the human face, there are big gaps through which droplets with virus can easily pass through. Thus wearing of masks could let you have a false sense of safety and expose you to greater danger! On the contrary, not wearing masks will keep you on the toes to avoid dangers and thus earn you better chances to get far far away from the virus, dio bo?

  • A Moron with Blinky Eyes:

    The most proximate cause of decadence that I see is not fear itself but people willing to follow an ignorant demagogue like Tan Kin Lian.

    That is the really scary thing. Our society will have to face an ugly truth at some point. You can have a society with a future, or you can have a society that will simply cease to exist.

    Weird logic!

    Shouldnt WP take care people of their constituencies and insist they wear masks if not n95 or surgical , at least some DIY cloth masks to lower risk. Anyway surgical mask are not even ideal.

    There are 50 plus percent of their fans there, they should alert them. Right now i m not seeing half or 40% or 20% or 15 % of people wearing masks in Hougang.

    Wearing a mask does not preclude being “on toes”. It is still better to wear a mask. Better safe than sorry. Can hope for the best but to be prudent must assume the worse and act accordingly. Remember “you get sick and die your business.”

    When the PAP say don’t wear mask, then all their minions and hanger-ons will have to follow suit. If not they are disobeying the party.

    Even with trembling hearts they will not wear masks to prove their loyalty to their master—quietly like sheep to the slaughter.

    Need to VTO the PAP–so that citizens can think for themselves again.

    If our government do not alert us with DORSCON orange then no one will pile foods unnecessary. So this the chicken and eggs things, its normal reaction, people are not KIASU. Who know NTUC is laughing to the bank because they got this great opportunity to clear their old stock. When all ignorance people wake up, they will real they do a lot of stupid things because they have lot of junk foods at home to clear and get sick of eating too many junk foods.
