Why the spread of covid-19 is slow in Singapore

I urge Singaporeans to think rationally. We have 91 covid-19 cases in Singapore.

Were all of these people identified early? No! Some of them came from Wuhan and Hubei and has been around for a while. They must have contacted many people in the hotel, shops, taxis and public transport, but the virus did not transmit.

What about other visitors from Wuhan and Hubei that were not identified. There must be many more of them.

If there virus is so contagious and deadly, we should by now have many deaths. We have not.

My common sense tells me:

a) Not every infected person is a spreader.
b) Not every contacted person gets the virus
c) The virus spreads less in warm climate.

Yes, they will be some spread of the virus, but it will not be at any alarming rate in a warm climate. It may be more serious in a cold climate.

I do not think we need to be alarmed and do the stupid contact tracing mandated by GKY’s code Orange.

Take it easy. Don’t be alarmed. If you are afraid of dying, watch out for the traffic and don’t look at your mobile phone when you are on the road, ok?

    Covid 19 positive individuals brought the virus to Sinkiland in late January . They were identified ,treated and discharged from hospitals. Since the virus is infectious, locals were infected. Infected locals have also been identified, treated and discharged.

    At this time, individuals who were infected, identified, treated and discharged outnumbered individuals who were infected and still remained in the hospitals. Newly identified cases have been small and on some days, zero cases were reported.This confirms the spread has been effectively contained and chances of out of control community spreading is remote if not impossible.

    The approach adopted by the authorities has been sound!

    Kuai Lang Tan (KLT),

    Think at this juncture, you should volunteer to take over the TASK of how to handle Covid 19 in SinKapore from Minister Son of the Gan, currently no sound no shadow of him. He seems to be hiding or holing up somewhere(maybe Timbuktu)where he is guaranteed to be SAFE and SOUND!

    @ Mr TKL,

    U make me sick!

    You know why Thai’s infection rate is so low?
    Because they drink Tom Yum? They massage the reporting figure like China? Or what?

    Because their air pollution is bad! Most of them have been living normally with PMI 2.5 for years, and most of them thus wear masks to filter air pollution as part of their daily life.

    And you go guess how it is related to the low infection figure.

    KLT or KL tan or kin lian tan or whateever.

    isn’t it far better to advise folks to wear mask and wash hands frequently than

    to say things which is based on feeling and nothing else?

  • HG people no wear masks:

    I went around HG and all the coffeeshops and hawker centers in HG , at least about 8 of them have all been full house with about 99% customers not wearing masks. And some elderlies are telling people, “the virus gone already”.

    I wonder what group of people spreading falsehoods to elderlies?

    We can extrapolate to say most singkees also won’t cry unless kenna.

  • TKLis KLT:

    the virus is mutating itself in the body to suit new environments, precisely waiting for fools like TKL to let its guards down and then erupt to create maximum damage as it did for Wuhan, Korea etc..

    the virus is smarter than stupid TKL.

  • TRE is the problem.:

    You know the problems; the problem is TRE has no real reporters, waiting for donating articles, no real editors, can’t do effective writing…. hence If nothing, TKL or KLT type articles can also be used [for the moment].

    But the real problem is, TRE no money for those reporters and editors. So donate, advertise or contribute. We need TRE running. [but without TKL or KLT].

    With this mindset, the writer is more deadly & dangerous than the virus itself.

    The thought logic is pure ignorant & disgustingly arrogant.

    The writer is probably single & eat well every day every meal.

  • Bobo:

    So to say stay calm and die calmly if you got the virus. Don’t create unnecessary panic out of fear. The reports are creating fear for all here. We believe in what we see and not what you said in your solely isolated personal view. Think out of the big box and not within the tiny jewel box.

  • Cream of the cork:

    My opinion :

    Because some idiots do not wear mask when they do not think they are sick but are actually infected spreading , more can continue to get infected asymptomatically.

    Some stupid sia suay haigong jokers think they are doctor qualified to preach to people about communicable diseases.

    Cream of the Cork.

    Good for nothing Joker.
