What is the impact of coronavirus being airborne?

There is a post that the coronavirus is now airborne. The experts said that the spread through surface contact is more active than the airborne virus.

There is no need to panic. Seasonal flu is also airborne.

Even if there are more people (currently 47) who are infected in Singapore, there is no need for alarm. In most cases, the infected people will be cured. Even if some of them have severe illness, it may not be fatal.

PM Lee said that the risk of fatality outside of Hubei, China is 0.2%. It affects mainly the older and frail people. Younger people have a low risk.

It may get worse, but for the time being, there is no evidence of that trend, to cause alarm in Singapore. There is no need to speculate and project the worse.

There is no need for excessive measures that will worsen the economic slowdown. There is no need to spend 1 hour to queue for temperature checks.

If some people feel safer to wear a mask, go ahead. Do what you think is necessary.

But I am still going around without a mask. I do not want anybody to criticize me for my decision or to suggest that I am not socially responsible. They have to be mindful of their words and stop being judgmental (like an idiot).

  • REGIME CHANGE is the solution:

    TKL is an idiot. You can get a flu vaccination. There is vaccine for the Wuhan virus.

    TKL, why are you so edgy over this wear or not wear mask thing? You have your right to not wear or even walk naked on the road, we don’t F care.

    Just don’t tell us what to do. We have our rights & our reasons too.

  • Seasonal Flu?:

    Why compare it with seasonal flu? Seasonal flu has not gotten so much media coverage as the Covid-19.

  • HDB got renovations?:

    Pop Quiz :

    What happens to the shit from a corona carrier after he flush it down his HDB flat?

    Does it stay inside the Shit reservoir of sorts? Will it multiply there?

    After that if toilet sewer pipes are removed for Reno, what happens ?

    Is any Singaporean capable of answering this?

    Why is Workers Party not raised this question?

    Also questions like the claim that there is sufficient mask and the definition of sufficient.

    Is WP real?

  • Birds Of Same Feather:

    Our clown prince has but this country into the advisory list with our cavalier attitude towards the Wuhan virus and our open leg policy.

    We are fast becoming the second country to be blocked after China.
    We have punched above our weight in spreading the virus, learning from our evil brother.

    Those clownish idiots have made this sillyplace for disease.
    We are in the tropics, yet this coronavirus is spreading like nobody, are sinkies bat eaters as well? those fuking commies lies.

    Better for you to wear. I don’t mingle with idiots.

    In times like this,as EVEN WHO SAYS THEY ARE UNSURE,PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN *CURE*.
    I say DONT SUBJECT sgs especially the JOBLESS WHO HAVE ZERO COMPANY MEDICAL BENEFITS to unnecessary INFECTION from CONTAGION.
    So,REDUCE RISK BY BARRING RETURNING FTs who have been to PRC from entering MAINLAND SG.
    SEND THEM TO SENTOSA COVE SO THAT THEY CAN RELAX WHILE BEING QUARANTINED.

    Oh boy, tkl demonstrates its stupidity YET AGAIN!!!! The impact of an airborne virus means that it can spread much further and faster because it can be INHALED in from air exhaled from an infected person. This makes it much harder to control the spread, especially compared to a disease that can only be spread by direct contact like ebola

    At least wearing masks when someone goes out means that the mask will filter out virus carrying droplets coughed or sneezed out by an infected person. Why else do you think medical workers and food handlers wear them tkl? It’s certainly NOT to hide their ugly faces, otherwise the law would require you to wear a black garbage bag over your head at all times so that we’ll all be spared your hideous blinky face

    Frankly speaking tkl, NOBODY gives a damn if you want to go out without a mask. Hey, best case scenario, you contract several airborne diseases simultaneously and drop dead from them. For that matter, go out stark naked if you want. The best thing that can happen is that we get spared more of your asinine lunatic ravings because you got arrested for indecent exposure

    You know what tkl? You want to catch airborne diseases, you want to infect your entire family, you’re welcome to do so. At most all of you die from it. Now how bad can that be? But just because you’re THAT stupid and irresponsible does NOT give you the right to criticize those who want to protect themselves and their loved ones. Especially since unlike them, you’re immune to exposure to airborne diseases as you’ll never inhale them in since your head is stuck so far up your own behind!!!!

  • WuhanTeachesMankindUAsOne:

    Wuhan virus teaches:

    1. The Rich to help The Poor.
    2. The Healthy to care for The Sick.
    3. The SuperPowers to stop bullying.
    4. Governments to spend more on
    Healthcare and Wellbeing of
    Citizens instead of wasteful
    Military Prowess coz Military
    Might can easily be defeated
    by Invisisible and Invincible
    army of mutant viruses.

    All these should be sincerely done, regardless or Creed, Status, Race or Religion. Man must come as One, no discrimination of any form, no matter
    What.
