Expansion of isolation facilities

I wish to give credit to the ministerial task force for the speed in which they have expanded the isolation facilities for people who are tested positive for the covid-19 virus.

They have already added 18,000 beds within a short time and plan to add another 23,000 beds by the end of June. See report.

This was useful to accommodate the recent spite in cases, most of which are found in the foreign worker dormitories.

My friend, who is a skeptic, said that this is not an outstanding achievement. It does not require highly paid ministers to arrive at this decision or to oversees its execution. He said that many other countries have also responded in this manner. We only need to follow their lead.

My friend also pointed out that many ordinary people have suggested earlier to expand the facilities. These people are not as highly paid as the ministers.

I do not want to argue against my friend, the skeptic. So, I will give credit to our highly paid ministers for their good response.

I do criticize the ministers for their bad judgment in many aspects of their handling of this crisis, especially with the costly and unnecessary circuit breaker. That is a separate issue.

I have put up several dozen posts on the handling of the covid-19 crisis over the past two months. See here. My approach is different from the ministerial task force on many issues. I will leave it to history to judge whether the ministerial task force had acted correctly.

    @TKL. I think you need to send your suggestions and recommendations directly to PM, & CC to every Minister, & repeatedly send them your suggestions and recommendations until you get a satisfactory reply. Better still, send all your past & present suggestions & recommendations to world leaders & scientific academy & WHO especially on “herd immunity” ALONE behind keyboards. I think they will think you 3 o’clock something long.

  • Pay Top Money for Top Talents:

    Dear TKL,
    Tell your friends, if you don’t pay high salary to MP and Minister, they (MP/Minister) will be under the control of rich businessman.

    Here is the truth.
    Recently a fire broke out at a KTV PartyWorld and kill 5 people in Taiwan.

    Normally, DPP were quick to attack/condemned people who were not affiliated with them.

    Now, DPP is SILENCE, and TOTAL SILENCE and DARE NOTE attack the OWNER (练台生) of KTV PartyWorld.

    WHY ? BECAUSE:
    1. the KTV owner operate a media company that everyday sing praise of DPP President Tsai. Praise and Praise DPP everyday.
    2. the owner 练台生 donate lots of money to DPP election campaign

    Do not trust and believe a single word of your friend Roy.

    Ah Tan, Unless you are into poke backside, then you can suck up to Roy.

    https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/coronavirus-covid-19-parliament-dormitories-circuit-breaker-12692630#cxrecs_s

    Nominated Member of Parliament (NMP) Anthea Ong will ask whether a Commission of Inquiry will be appointed to investigate the high incidences of COVID-19 among foreign workers, and how their living conditions may have led to the spread of the disease.

    HOW COME MOM RADAR FAIL TO PICK UP THE CRAMMED LIVING CONDITIONS IN FWs DORMS WHEN THE ROOMS SPACE DON’T ALLOW THEM TO PRACTISE SAFE DISTANCING & PROBABLY WISH THAT THE VIRUS SPREAD WILL NOT HAPPEN AT THE DORMS WHEN LW SAID IN HIS SAFE DISTANCING MESSAGE THAT WE DON’T WANT TO SEE CROWDED VENUES & PACKED EVENT HALLS (NO MENTION OF DORMS)!

    I AM FOR A COI TO BE APPOINTED TO INVESTIGATE OBJECTIVELY WHO IS/ARE LIABLE FOR CRIMINAL NEGLIGENCE (IF ANY)!

  • TanXi:

    Without piped medical gas, without proper exhaust air treatment, without proper medical facilities, ICU etc… you should call those “Mass Holding Areas” instead of isolation facilities.

    I would expect the air cross contamination would be so bad that we should give it a name now, “The PAPi TanXi Holding Areas”. Substantiated by the use of Robot to see if you C BO C.

    We all must remember these areas are because of the F*uckUp of PAPi.

    And this stupid TKL still so appreciative that more will be constructed.

  • Sinkies easily satisfied:

    Singaporeans are easily satisfied. Rob them blind, give them a dollar and they are very satisfied and grateful.

    Those people created the problem. Years of neglect and months of wrong anti-covid strategy. Now they give a tiny solution that partially solve a small part of the problem. Now people want to give them credit? Ho say boh?

    By the way, have people seen videos of the isolation centres? Not really isolation.
