Get everyone to have a temperature screen once a week

This is what I gathered from reading many sources.

When a person is infected with the coronavirus, it may stay in the body for several weeks or months before they become serious ill.

So, many people may be discovered quite late, way beyond the 14 day incubation period. If so, quarantine is not useful.

It is better to make everyone go through a temperature screen at least once a week. It will identify those people with symptoms of the coronavirus. They can be sent to hospital.

The spread is more serious when the symptoms appear. The weekly temperature screening has a better chance of catching the infected persons with symptoms.

The infected person may infect other people before he is discovered but the number will be small and at an early stage, the virus will not cause serious harm. If all the infected person are discovered early, the spread can be reduced considerably.

I prefer the screening to be carried out by specially trained people with proper equipment. I do not like the current approach of decentralizing the screening to the workplaces using the security officers.

Do you agree?

    What? Only once a week? Every home should have a thermometer to monitor daily temperature, twice daily, morning and night! Soon the pharmacies will also be out of thermometer!

  • REGIME CHANGE is the solution:

    Prevention is better than cure. Do NOT believe MOH. Wear a mask when outside the house. This also prevents touching face with unclean hands. Avoid going out unless necessary for at least two weeks. Promptly wash hands when back at home quickly followed by a shower and change of clothes. Also, promptly wash all clothes worn outside the house.

    Remember you cannot vote for REGIME CHANGE if you are dead.

  • tan kin lian is pea brained:

    taking of temperature in public places is a façade to reassure sheep everything is ok.

    anyone kenna before shall know way before any fever something is wrong. the first discomfit is sore throat. then bone ache. then fever, from slight to severe.

    so any honest person, meaning non pap since pap lies all the time, no need others to take their temperature already know they kenna.

    moreover, for ownself check ownself system, why need others to do the checking since it is all about ownself?

    tan kin lian sure is pea brained. all words, none of substance.

    Singaporean are the KS. Of all the cases, all auto, quickly see doctors themselves.

    TKL may be suffering a mind-set problems. He thinks he’s somebody special upper being from the rest of normal people??

    TRE also to be blamed. Last post almost 100% negative feedback and TRE still allows him to continue. In all, I think there were 3 posts from him on same subject. Why, TRE nothing better to publish or sub-standard?

  • Orange Alert:

    SG is a like that cruiise ship except with 5 mil passengers. How to monitor everyone’s temperature? An easier way is to have everyone test his/her own temperature daily. If the readings are repeatedly high, check into a quarantine location to have a more thorough examination to see if need to be admited.

  • checking temp is deadly:

    Actually, it is worse than wayang, it is spreading the disease.

    The one checking temperature wears a glove and puts his hand right in front of your nose and mouth.

    The public here don’t wear mask (sheepishly). Imagine one virus-carrier cough or breath into the checker’s glove.

    Can you imagine the horror? The virus on the glove will now be spread to all the next persons getting checked. They will be breathing in virus straight from the checker’s glove right in front of their nose.

    In China, it is safe since everyone is wearing glove and nobody can cough virus onto the checker’s glove.

    Advice for people getting checked: don’t ever breath in during check, and for others’ sake, don’t breath out either.

  • Bapak:

    Somewhere out there a fool went to see a doctor.

    Dr – How can I help you Mr. Moony Poony?
    MP – My cock itch and very painful when I urines.
    Dr – Have you been to Geylang?
    MP – Yes.
    Dr – Did you use a condom?
    MP – No!
    Dr – Why not? Don’t you practice prevention is better than cure? Now you kenna STD already.
    MP – But my family doctor told me no need if I am well.
    Dr – What? Who is this doctor? From which clinic?
    MP – Dr. Li from Pee&Poo Clinic.
    Dr – Is he a qualified doctor giving such stupid advice? But you are also very stupid not to use your common sense.
    MP – But doctor, I have a bigger problem now.
    Dr – What?
    MP – Last night, my wife wanted to make love to me I put on the condom and I got scolded. She said you are healthy why put on the condom. Is there any medicine to cure me immediately?
    Dr – There is medicine to cure but no immediate cure. Next time don’t be so stupid next time, okay.

    Fools rush in!

  • The Same Many Sources:

    Where are your many sources of info?
    From 中共大外宣 party materials?

    可控, 可防,不会人传人?!

    Many victims are without symptoms until late stage where they just collapse into epileptic fits as the nervous system is attacked.

    Remember, this virus is a man-made weapon meant to kill.
    Protect yourselves, Get your info right from the many right sources.

    When you understand the golden mantra above, you will understand their pretense.

    They can talk and Wayang but it is you who will suffer and bear the blunt of their mistakes.

    When the show is over, you are a mere dumb milking digit in their big greedy money picture, they don’t care a bit about you.

  • REGIME CHANGE is the solution:

    Straits Times: Covid-19 outbreak: Health Minister Gan Kim Yong tells public to prepare for some fatalities

    Singapore should also make sure that PAP is also a “casualty” of the virus for bad advice – “wear a mask only if you are sick”.

    Wear a mask when you go out to vote to “signal” to PAP who you are voting for. Tell polling station officials you are “sick”.

    With REGIME CHANGE there will be no GST increase. It might even be a decrease.

    aiyoh ? that for sure, a lot of daft sinkies (maybe at 30% ??) know and many more from the 70% who may hate the ‘devil’ but somehow cannot bear to leave the ‘devilish clutch’ of the white idiots after living with them for so long (many tend to get too tired fighting the devil and grow to adapt to it ???) ?

    now, anyone for raising of GeeAssTee to help the poor ? bet there are who will proudly ‘appear’ on interview and broadcast in 151th media ?

  • Realistically:

    @ Tan Kin Lian

    “It is better to make everyone go through a temperature screen at least once a week.”

    Aiyah, Tan Kin Lian ah, Tan Kin Lian; especially coming from someone who was CEO of NTUC Income, and a well-educated actuary, your comment seems very sua ku leh.

    Each family must buy its own thermometer – for me, the most reliable and accurate being the old fashioned mercury-in-bulb type, but must be used with great care because of the mercury – to check a person’s temperature EVERY DAY, at least for one sign of the coronavirus infection. Of course temperature check ALONE is not that reliable, but at least it does serve a purpose.

    Sigh, basic commonsense seems to elude our so-called ELITES, including the MOH Assoc Professor Mak, who said wearing mask does not help…..stupid one lah…….then why doctors & nurses wear mask at polyclinics & hospitals?

  • Lucky Old Man:

    WP has not raised any question pertaining to this Corona Virus saga eg :

    1. Why since SARS not enough stockpile of masks?

    2. Chan should not have told people not to wear masks if not sick. Wearing is always better . Cost of masks is nothing compared to health.

    3. Why SG has much more cases than Macau and HK ? Despite all the selfpraising bybstatesmedia and cronies.
