  • SG has to be forced:

    The problem with SG :

    1. Once decision made, they die die won’t admit mistake.

    2. A super majority that’s trust so greatly, is Unquestionable and finds excuse for the garment if confronted with allegations of flawed garment.

    The SG garment has to be Forced to do things. This is because SG ia void of opposition force.

    I propecise :

    1. Lock down will happen only if they are Forced.

    2. They will apologise for advisory Not To wear masks only if forced . Asymptomatic, unlinked cases. DEATHS IN OLD FOLKS HOMES.

    3. SCHOOL SHUTDOWN if forced by news of students being infected.

    4. Forced to accept use of cloth or non cloth washable masks.

    They have gotten addicted to feeling they are always right and void of opposition, they won’t admit mistakes.

    Unless FORCED.

    More expected as more *OVERSEAD SGS* RETURN from USA N OTHER WESTERN countries.

    And still,we cannot get a SIMPLE SURGICAL MASK as a protection?

    If SAFE DISTANCING IS IMPORTANT,so too wearing a mask,i believe?

    OR,maybe THEY ARE KEEPING THE MASKS fir themselves???

    SINGAPORE – A fifth patient has died from the coronavirus infection here, the Ministry of Health announced on Friday (April 3).

    The woman, an 86-year-old Singaporean, had no recent travel history to affected countries and regions…. “Unquote.

    Response :5th death already. Not fourth death. And someone is hoarding all those disposable masks such that the cheapest disposable mask selling on the market is still selling at a high price of $35.00 for a set of 50 pieces! HC and the whole evil PAP women wing are really greedy beasts!!!!

    Heard live video from Internet, that LHL says that the government no longer discourage people from wearing masks maybe due to WHO and America CDC . And from this Sunday(two days from now), and the government will distribute re-useable mask to every household. Go and guess how many re – usable mask that the government will distribute this time round? LHL never say how many re – usable mask will be distributed to each household. But looking at that e*** Puthucheary only previously distribute 4 disposable masks for each household only to be used when unwell and on the way to see doctor,my guess that it will be unlikely for the government to distribute any re-useable masks of more than two quantity per household.Are re-useable masks lasting for ever? Obviously No. Nothing last forever. Wash few times will also be bad and gone. Better ask LHL to send the re-useable masks by post mail to our letterbox and not waste every resident time to self collect! LHL, better save resident time and improve productivity. The last collection exercise from those evil Town Council wing need about 12 people to distribute a small bottle of 500 ml of sanitizer to resident when such thing can be send by post mail to letter box fully sealed. Waste time and non productivity from those evil Town Council whole bunch of wicked women wing.

    All those doctors who have said “Mask not necessary when well” should have their licence cancelled. For male doctors to have self performance of orchiectomy (removal of their balls).

    The first to lead is Dr. Mak!
