There is more to life than 2019-nCoV

While everyone is seized with nCoV and engaged in battling this serious medical outbreak, there is more to life than nCoV. In MOT, we press on with the expansion of our MRT network. TEL1 opened last week. Today, LTA has just signed a contract with Korea’s Hyundai Rotem Company to place our order for 62 trains for the Jurong Region Line, which will start operations in 2026. New trains will come with new features: wider train doors, more space for wheelchair users and strollers, advanced sensors and diagnostic systems etc.

Another good news for our commuters: our MKBF has crossed the 1-million km mark for all our MRT lines! This is a spectacular achievement in rail reliability by our operators SMRT and SBS Transit and LTA! #OneTransport team has worked very hard at this and crossing the milestone is hugely satisfying!

With nCoV, #OneTransport team has stepped up cleaning routines on our public transport. Together, we will help one another live this through this outbreak. Remember: personal hygiene, wash hands with soap and water often!

  • Harder Truths:

    Won’t matter if an individual is dead. Or do these guys still go around as a virus-eaten zombie to collect their pay?

  • opposition dude:

    It’s true that there is more than life to the virus but it’s also true that people are concerned about it. After all, who wants to be infected right?

    And the useless minister takes the opportunity to toot his own horn for a job well done. Let’s not forget he also said that $2.5 billion will have to be spent to renew the 2 oldest lines ya?

    You know who is going to pay the $2.5 billion hor? And it will be over that amount because you know who can’t stop making money.

  • pap liars lying with eyes open:

    sure we know there is more to life if we are able to dip our hands into sheep CPF via ownself pay ownself S$m.

    sure there is more to life if we are able to tell sheep no need to wear mask unless kenna while we stockpile masks for our own use even when not kenna and when caught telling the lie give all manner of excuses why it is so such as since we are very rich we need to wear mask to ensure we live long life to enjoy our S$m.

    sure, since time immemorial, crooks say one thing but do another. especially those whose illegal actions anywhere else in the world are made legal via a pliant parleement.

  • Layman observation:

    The emphasis has been economic betterment.
    Education has been geared towards wealth and it’s buildup.
    Broadly that defines success.
    Not much attention or hardly any attention has been given to matters of the soul.
    The result is the creation of a high degree of self-centredness and self preservation, inclination towards pleasures of the existential senses, insensitivity, and disguised cockiness and arrogance.
    The resultant is the reactions in the situation faced today, the rush to stay alive above everything else. Every man for himself.
    How is humanity measured with such behaviours, what’s our score, where do we stand.
    Refinement, genuine refinement is missing, rare.
    Have we gone wrong along the way?
    We have forgotten that planet earth is just a dot in the universe, that we are born and later die, that each one of us is unique, and we finally exit heading into an area a dimension that obviously we know very little about, that time is infinite, yet we shy away, not encouraged (allowed) by officialdom from basic discussions on religions and philosophies that help shape the minds. There is a barrenness here, an emptiness. Despite the hugeness and the unlimited scope of intellectualism on such subjects, the absence is so apparent.
    It is an dry drab cold desert here, do you get the drift.
    Economic considerations override.
    Death is a morbid topic, a weird subject. Test throw this topic up in a gathering and see the reactions or more accurately the lack of it. You suddenly become a nuisance, a spoiler, a oddity, better to stay away from such characters.
    Is there a need for re-education, re-engineering, realignment, refocusing, reinventing, intellectual shift?
    Unless there is more openness in the immense realities about the human mind as opposed to the gearing up and overly cultivation of the crass economic animal, let’s brace ourselves for long queues, panic buying, and the unpleasantness that comes with it.
    Thoughtfulness, compassion, generosity and consideration for the needs of others belong to a fine character.
    A fine honourable character is the product and culmination of proper education and training.

    A coin has two sides :

    The good from Corona :

    1. Forcefully Educates sgreans who need to be spoonfed in order to do something to upgrade their hygiene from 3rd world to 1st.

    2. Give SG a compelling reason to go CASHLESS. SG made a fatal mistake not to go fully cashless . Notes may have bacteria or virus.

    3. Force cronies operating coffeeshops to upgrade their hygiene and public toilets.
    These fat pigs keep profiting from us and hacking price without giving us 1st world hygiene. Look at the chopsticks, spoons, tables where a clean cloth wipes dirt or spitted liquids and it’s rinsed and then used to wipe other tables.

    The root problem is still the people who are well educated fools with 3rd world expectations.

    The virus now Forcefully Educates them by giving them a scare of their freaking lives. Kia Si people learn fastest.

    the bodies you mention are civil service n not pap;do not politicise issue ,yes the civil service has worked hard esp moh not synonymous with pap ,all you do is grin n pay them a visit
    You are taking credit for others work,
    I believe you are fr Malaysia, you come here and make a very good living,in yr own homeland you are just a voice in the wilderness,don’t come n teach us how to suck eggs as late Rajaratnam once told a expat editor,
    You come fr a region where things are far worse,be thankful to spore which has given you a good life ,you n yr fellow malaysians,
    As the late lky said once every day kneel down n thank the gods or God that you worship for the good life you enjoy in spore when so many are sick,jobless and face a dark future n the economy is getting worse ,
    New mrt trains coming donot excite us,our children n grandchildren coming out fr the unis are losing jobs to foreign trash n Malaysian rubbish,

  • as in gated communities:

    //The root problem is still the people who are well educated fools with 3rd world expectations.//

    if the root of the problem is not chopped off, bad examples of leadership wayang will still filter down to the larger populace and mistrust will always be there ? why not wayang if honesty and integrity (in action instead of preaching) does not work at all ?

    //1. Forcefully Educates sgreans who need to be spoonfed in order to do something to upgrade their hygiene from 3rd world to 1st.//

    how to reach 1st world if your own sinkie land is constantly flooded by chat-ba-lang people via 6.9m or 10m open-leg leadership policy ?

    first world dressing (with all the bling bling) but third world behavior and wayang double standard ?

    now do you start to see more and more such ‘stratification’ (e.g more condo in the heartland areas as in gated communities with their own ‘security personnel’ ?) as compared to the past ????

    //Force cronies operating coffeeshops to upgrade their hygiene and public toilets.

    Tell that to those in Wuhan and Hubei who are going through hell on earth.

    Tell that to all the Nations now fighting to contain the spread of this plague.
