Singapore to undergo an effective lockdown from April 7

Singapore is undergoing an effective lockdown from April 7. But the government is calling it a “circuit breaker”. Part marketing, part using a different term to allay fears. Doesn’t matter what they call it as long as they do it. Singapore is seeing more than 20, 50 domestic cases a day now.

I am very relieved Singapore is finally closing schools and workplaces. This should have been done much earlier. Nonetheless, it is finally done.

But Tuesday is still late. If you can, please stay away from crowds as soon as you can. Remember to keep your distance from others, and wear some form of mask if you are in crowded places.

It is a good idea to stock up a little if you can. Take care, everyone. We have the strength to go through this.

  • PAPVID-20:

    We’ve a Health Minister who studied Electrical Engrg. CB must have came from him lah! Maybe soon they’ll even call the virus, CURRENT, no more coronavirus.

    Wonder if WHO would understand what CB means and if they would clap for our pap govt or not. What creative thinking by the pap, huh?

    But FFS lah! Call a spade a spade. Call a lockdown a lockdown. Don’t think we don’t know what pap is up to. It’s all bcoz of the much talked about GE that they refused to call a lockdown a lockdown. What a bunch of xia suay kia!

  • Stop Export of Food Items:

    “It is a good idea to stock up a little if you can.”

    Remember some patriotic Chinese nationals (maybe Singapore citizens, but still Chinese national at heart) who bulk purchased face masks and exported to China. How can we be sure that these patriotic Chinese nationals are not exporting staple foods to China since there is a panic buying and hoarding of rice, oil and noodles in many cities in China. Are Singapore authorities looking into these possible scenarios? Could this be a loophole in our total defence?

  • Circuit breaker?:

    For electricity supply, we can think of a central generator. If you apply a central circuit breaker, the electricity supply is stopped.

    BUT, this is virus spreading, where everybody is or potentially is a generator. There is no super critical circuit breaker that the aristocrat can apply.

    It is time to pull out or cut off all connecting wires (real social distancing plus masks)

    The danger of a wrong analogy is that the method may also be wrong. Is the taskforce looking for a magical circuit breaker to cut off all virus supply?

  • I agree with Roy that it would be effective to a certain extent, buying enough time for the party to call for an erection before dafts realise that the measures are not very effective to contain the spread of teh deadly virus.

    One more step and they could have contained the spread like Wuhan did and a safe erection can be called in June, but NOoooooooo, die die must have a pandemic erection now because the LEEder wants it.

    And this is the kind of party 70% voted for?

    Better late than never.

    Better still stay or work at home if you can.
    Hope the virus situation will get better soon.lets do our part to prevent the spread.
    Meanwhile help all in need….especially the poor ,needy and jobless.

  • Sg is doomed with 4Gs:

    The way the 4Gs has handled the C19 crisis is a xia suay flop and shows how clumsy and incompetent they are.

    They are half baked and half hearted to go all go to contain the virus coz they just want to please the pinky.

    They only know how to come out with silly term like CB to cover their incompetence and agenda.

    Whole lot should be sacked!!!

  • WakeupSG:

    The “circuit breaker” measures are exactly DORSCON RED measures which are clearly spell out & to continue to call it DORSCON ORANGE by Chairman MTF, LW is to belittle the endorsed DORSCON CODE TO COMBAT THE COVID-19 VIRUS EFFECTIVELY!

    I read somewhere that some bars and KTVs still operating along Tanjong Pagar Road despite shutdown orders for all public entertainment outlets. Is it because they are not taking the situation seriously as the govt is sending out mixed-up message they are unclear of the true state of Covid-19 situation with the escalating of local cases exceeding the imported ones, 573 vs 541 respectively as of 3rd April, 12NN. If the people are not serious to be compliant in this supposedly RED CODED grave SITUATION it may abort the govt action to contain the virus spread!

    It is wrong & unsound of govt not to declare clearly DORSCON RED & enforce it rigorously to achieve the desired outcome! Above all, forget about the PANDEMIC GE!

    Using CB as a analogy to contain the virus is plain stupidity and ineffective.

    CB is a safety device to cut off power supply temporarily if there is an unwanted surge.

    But don’t forget that you also want to have reconnection which could mean that the virus flows in again with the current. So turn on and off again and again.

    Hello we want a permanent solution PERIOD!

    How come these ivy leak $m miws cannot come with out with better analogy?

  • Educating Singaporeans:

    Let me educate you, Singaporeans.

    Who is most vocal in demanding freedom, democracy etc ?

    Yes, you guess right. It is the gay and lesbian group.

    The first bill that DPP pass after winning the election is same sex marriage.

    In Taiwan, Gay/Lesbian sex is more important than bread and butter issue and is the first bill DPP pass after seizing power.

    https://www.npr.org/2019/05/17/724222598/taiwans-parliament-legalizes-same-sex-marriage-a-first-in-asia

    Your son will be gay and will be poking backside in open public and your daughter will be lesbian rubbing puss* in open public.

    Do you really want to vote in Opposition Party ?
    Taiwan DPP is a opposition party and the first bill that DPP pass after winning the election is same sex marriage.Not bread and butter bill.

  • UniQ:

    After the occurrence of the first cluster identified at the church, the most decisive actions are to carryout an immediate lockdown for 2-3 weeks and closed down all borders for Singaporeans travel and all out going PRs and Foreigners are barred from re-entering till further notice, while maintaining essential supplies import and export.

    I guest we have too many yes men trying to just please 1 Joker while this Joker is clueless and undecisive and secretly depending on his coward subordinates to stand out with a firm stand which we all know this team are a bunch of gutless stooges.

    We are now a joke in our region and also the world stage now and the people panic buying each time our Joker speaks tells the people has NO FAITH towards this regime and whatever this Joker is hearing from his henchmen are all distorted from what is the truth happening now.

    Thus, ready for the voting booth Singaporeans !!

  • Let Me Educate You, STUPID:

    You kena poke in the brain, that’s why you are pprogrammed to sing PAP’s praises like some robot.

    What kind of nonsense that being gay = public sex??!! The ones that walk around naked or take bus naked are those uncles in STOMP. The man and woman walking around naked in Holland Village are a HETERO couple.

    Nudist colony busted in Malaysia are STRAIGHT.

    Also you theory that oppo supporters must be gay also makes me laugh. How retarded can you be?

  • WakeupSG:

    “As of 4 April 2020, 12 pm, the Ministry of Health (MOH) has confirmed and verified an additional 75 cases of COVID-19 infection in Singapore, of which six are imported and 69 are local cases who have no recent travel history abroad.

    This makes a total of 1,189 cases of confirmed COVID-19 infection in Singapore.”

    Is the situation under control with local cases 642 vs 547 imported cases?

    To keep the situation under control no use crying for the frontline workers sacrifices but also call the situation clearly with effective measures that target the areas that this Covid-19 virus spread wildly & widely like foreign workers dorm, old folks homes, public transport etc.

    Instead of “circuit breaker” measures, go for “cluster breaker” measures to effectively control & contain the virus spread!

    WakeupSG:
    The “circuit breaker” measures are exactly DORSCON RED measures which are clearly spell out & to continue to call it DORSCON ORANGE by Chairman MTF, LW is to belittle the endorsed DORSCON CODE TO COMBAT THE COVID-19 VIRUS EFFECTIVELY!

  • Circuit Breaker impact:

    This Virus situation has impact different people differently.
    The Circuit Breaker situation will affect some even more badly especially those that lost their jobs.Not easy for them to get another one at this period especially the Senior PMETs.
    Suggest that we be more flexible when giving support to these groups especially if they have been out of jobs for 3 or more months already.
    Should give cash support ASAP in April.
