MP Cheng Li Hui on why she wore a mask

One of our residents here at Tampines East is a confirmed patient of the nCoV.

I visited the patient’s block again today, to support the cleaning done by the Tampines Town Council. I also stopped by the quarantined home briefly, and dropped the family a card with the CC’s contact details should they need help. I left them some freshly baked bread and groceries at their door for them to bring in after we left.

To protect other residents and volunteers, I wore a mask and gloves on the advice of NEA officers. These were properly disposed of.

My fellow Tampines Grassroots Advisers and I have been working on the ground and helping the affected residents.

Now is definitely not the time for destructive politics and fear-mongering. Each of us have to take personal responsibility for our own actions and hygiene habits, and look out for one another in the community.

We will be doing a food donation drive tomorrow at Blk 201B, from 8am to 12noon. The food would go to low income families and those in need. I hope many – including the armchair critics – would come by and contribute.

Together, we can do more for the community.

  • GMS is PAP?:

    GMS literally spitted on WP and recently SDP.

    I was surprised with GMS post ealier only to realize that it is a follow up PAP talk-show Propaganda of care, attempting to infiltrate into Oppos camps.

    I’m convinced to expect nothing good from him then….

    thus….anything from GMS = PAP.

  • REGIME CHANGE is the solution:

    MOH advice is NOT to wear masks if not sick. MP is not sick. Why is she wearing a mask? Also, she was not face-to-face with the quarantined resident when she was photographed wearing a mask. She also did not explain why NEA officer advised her to wear masks when there was no intention to meet the quarantined person face-to-face.

    The fact is wearing a mask is to protect a person from being infected, not just to prevent spreading infection.

    MOH advice is really STUPID – another good reason for REGIME CHANGE. VTO.

  • Get Real:

    If she is well, why is she wearing a mask? The mask is to be worn only when you go see the doctor. Isn’t that contradictory to the govt’s advisory to the people? To say that it is done on the advice of NEA makes the contradiction even more glaring because NEA is a govt agency. Going by govt advisory, we would assume she was unwell and should be resting in bed! You think she is being wholly honest when she said she wore the mask to protect the people she visited?

  • Wise Up:

    Alternative Media should wise up and learn the lesson.

    The photo angle, proximity and clarity looks suspicious, really. The ‘pose’ looks artificial. Should have known it’s a MIW plot.

    Anything from that G.MS, TRE should double filter the next time.

  • tan kin lian is pea brained:

    pap. as usual, says one thing but does another.

    pap says need malay president but selected INDIAN.

    pap says within 200m of polling station during polling day is offence but INSIDE 200m is not the same as within 200m.

    pap says do not wear mask unless kenna but pap Cb not kenna but wears mask.

    pap Cb gives all manner of cock and hen BS to justify wearing mask. if this is so, pap must also say the cock and hen BS after the words, do not wear mask unless kenna and unless the following cock and hen BS happens.

    in the end, the sane conclusion rules. believe pap die fastest.

  • nizhemoshou:

    She scared can kenna infected bcos she would be passing by the affected resident flat to leave her deliveries to him outside his flat . In other words, even tho she wont be talking to him face to face nor he have to open the door to receive the deliveries from her .

    If like that pappies themselves dare not take chance by not wearing mask and saying that is on the advice of NEA some more , they want other SGs to take chance? Simi logic? Hey pappies, others lives matter too or do you think your lives more valuable than others or what?.
    Why should we be made to take chance when there are hundreds of thousands of prcs of different SG residential status [new citizens, sprs and work pass holders ] and we dont actually know how many of them had gone back to China for the lny holidays n returned , We are told only 30 k pending return [Can assume prcs returning from China would easily far outnumber sgs locals returning from there]
    We also dont know which flats or houses are under home quarantine unlike the pappies who have such privileged info.

    To them, SG has two kind of people.

    1) Elite (oso called Suckee) – must be given proper advices, treatments & protected, at all costs.

    2) Sucker – can be brainwashed, manipulated, thrown to the pit & you die your business, at the expense of the elite, at all costs.

    Hence, the difference advices, treatments, privileges, pays and laws apply. If you didn’t notice you are one of them oso called Sinkies.

    WAKE THE FUCK UP ALL YOU SINKIES70 WHO CHOOSE TO MAKE YOURSELVES SUCKERS BY THEM!

  • she needs to be whipped by pap:

    Get Real:
    She should be commended for not listening to bad advice, for doing what is right and setting a good example for the people.

    when pap gan kim yong, laulan wrong, and gang say no need mask unless kenna, they mean if no fever no cough no sore throat no need to wear mask.

    by pap parleementary whip, pap expects its underlings to toe the line, meaning they cannot wear mask and expose the lying of gan kim yong, laulan wrong, and gang.

    this means this pap Cb is doing it expecting to be whipped by pap parleementary whip. of course, like all things pap, there is a reason for exposing pap lies by pap ownself expose ownself explanation, pap says she is okay because she is not whipable since she is not in parleement wearing mask but outside parleement wearing mask.

    but isn’t the explanation the same as INSIDE 200m is not within 200m?

    that is, when pap folks say something and are then caught breaking the something they have set, pap always has a stupid explanation for stupid sheep to accept.

    once again, we say, listen to pap die fastest.

  • Did u get the death stare yet?:

    Saw several incidents lately on mrt and bus..
    Everytime someone coughs or sneezes , i saw some person turn around and give that person “the death stare” .
    Many who are coughing /sneezing still arent wearing masks. Very umfortunate.
    ..and if u wear a mask again some fool will keep looking your way trying to determine if youre ill or not..
    There are some naughty ones who purposely keep on fake sneezing /coughing after being stared at..
    Happened in a bus i was in few days ago..it was irrirating but quite funny.
    I wore a mask n got the “treatment” as well.
    I dont care! I stared back.

    Whether to wear a mask or not why care what people say? The trouble is most Singaporeans’ brains already owned by mass media and ‘shitheads’ like TKL, GMS and Govt’s organs.

    This has got to be the biggest BS and FAKE NEWS I have heard since the outbreak.

    Tell that to the throngs of medical workers and the train conductors in China who were initially infected. These people certainly did not get the virus from hugging the patients and passengers, did they?

    Why don’t this joker go visit the infected wards to talk to the patient both without mask. No need to hug or shake hands, just talk for 5 minutes can liao.

    If that person is from MOH, then the idiotic he/she deserves to be given the boot asap.

    If this idiot is a medical personal, he/she should stop insulting the medical workers in China and around the world who are risking their lives to save others.

    If non medical should just shut the fiack up especially when not knowing what BS he/she is toking about.

    The part ‘give you a false sense of security’ is acceptable. But not the ‘breathing in’ part which is BS. Take note N95 mask gives 95% protection and ordinary one only protects if microbes can stick to the mask together with larger droplets. Not forgetting also can take short-cuts through the sides of the mask if not properly fitted.

    Any way, got mask still better than no mask. Period.

    Be that as it may, I think the biggest BS is the advice to no need wear mask. Whoever that person who cooked that is a complete idiot and a moron.

    If he/she is a medical doctor, then I would say use the medical degree as a toilet paper cause he/she don’t deserve it.

    same lar ? also can say that having a strong army also can give you a false sense of security because most of the time, the attacks can come from within (e.g soft attacks like being replaced and displaced in jobs) unknowingly let in via 6.9m or 10m open-leg policy ????????

    well, now the virus did come into sinkie land and is now doing ‘attack’ right ? can a strong army prevent this kind of attacks ??????

  • WakeupSG:

    “Surgical masks are a basic defense against some viruses, and they may be helpful in communities where health officials suspect viruses are circulating widely. But in the US, there’s no need to wear surgical masks — or the N95 respirators physicians wear when treating viruses — says infectious disease expert Dr. Charles Chiu.

    There’s no evidence of sustained novel coronavirus transmission in the United States like there is in China, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has not recommended Americans wear masks in public.

    “Right now, there’s no evidence that [wearing face masks] is going to help prevent that infection,” Chiu, a professor of laboratory medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, told CNN. “I would not recommend that someone in the US who does not have direct exposure, did not recently travel to China … or in general that you go buy a face mask.”

    But in the US, Chiu said, wearing a mask could give wearers a “FALSE SENSE OF SECURITY,” he said: If concerned people wear a surgical mask, usually made out of thin fabric or paper, they may not continually wash their hands or fear contact with infected people.

    “That’s really not the nature of transmission,” he said. “That’s thought to be contact transmission — touching infected surfaces, touching the eyes and nose.”

    Chiu and the CDC recommend what he calls “common-sense measures”: Avoid contact with ill people, stay home from work when sick, thoroughly wash hands with soap.

    The CDC’s recommendations for response in the US could change as the situation does. But at this point, Americans don’t need to wear masks in public.”

    Prof Chiu is telling Americans not to wear masks at this point in US. Wrt SG it is different as the DORSCON alert level is now ORANGE!
