  • Low death by not counting:

    Walau, even the community care facility is very dangerous, even to “protected” healthcare workers.

    We know PAP is not good at counting. 4=5.

    People died from covid-19, also can no count. Heart failure. There are many studies reported in the news that covid-19 causes heart failure. Go Google. No wonder Singapore death rate from covid-19 is unusually low.

    Most likely, if people died before test, then definitely no test. Less official deaths from covid-19.

  • why not counted?:

    it is now known that CV causes strokes and heart attacks in some cases.
    so in the case of the 44yo bangladeshi man it could be in that category?
    im no medical person ..but ive read several articles n this symptom was mentioned.
    it attacks young n older persons with covid19.
    out health care pros should do some investigation..

  • Covid 19 creates Blood Clots:

    I have read articles from the US that many Vovid 19 young men and women have died because of the mini and major blood clots in the blood vessels and organs created by Covid 19 virus.

    Why didn’t our Health Ministry highlight this danger to Singaporeans ?

    In the course of work n of helping others in such scenarios,this is inevitable.
    Only question is ARE THEY OVER-WORKED N THEREFORE,STRESSED OUT?!
    IF SO,IMMUNITY IS SURELY AFFECTED EVEN WITH PPEs n BEST HYGIENE PRACTICE?

    I BLAME THE MINISTERS N GOURMET PERM SECS FOR ALLOWING THE COVID TO SPREAD IN THIS MANNER N STRETCHES OUR RESOURCES WHEN IT COULD HAVE BEEN BETTER CONTAINED RIGHT AT THE ONSET!

    NO NEED MASK ETC?
    NO HINDSIGHT??
    ARE YOU NOT PAID TO HAVE BETTER FORESIGHT THAN the PEOPLE who elected you?

    We must not allow ourselves anymore excuses as good leaders.

    WHEN THEY ALLOWED THE 30,000 PRC TO COME BACK from CHINA, THEY SHOULD KNOW THE SPREAD WILL GO INTO THE DOM.

    this is what a “BUNCH ” OF FREAK MINISTERS are

    good for.

    The Banglas and Indians are the victims( sitting ducks) of VIRUS BOUGHT IN BY THE PRC’S.

    Where were PRC’s going to STAY during their QUARANTINE, in Hotels ???

    BUT FREAK GOV, couldn’t care one bit LESS, why,

    The EMPLOYERS, DOM OPERATORS, HAVE to turn a PROFIT

    SO THAT ELECTION FUNDINGS IS COMING IN TO PAP

    POCKETS…..

    18669 another case reported by TOC also EXPO;

    https://www.onlinecitizenasia.com/2020/05/05/sporean-healthcare-volunteer-at-expo-isolation-facility-tests-positive-for-covid-19/

    The Expo Air-Conditioning and Mechanical Ventilation Ductworks, including all its Air-Handling Units and mechanical fans would be most likely contaminated with the virus. These equipment are not designed to handle the virus laden air and will expose maintenance staff to added hazard and risks of infection. The air cross-contamination and the air distribution ductworks may be routing to supply or leak to other non-isolation areas which will make the matter worse. Apparently even with the Robots, the virus can still find its path.

    Already cross 20,000 mark. How much does it costs the tax-payers a day to keep them quarantined, fed and treated in these community facilities? What assurance is there that those who have been relocated from their dorms will not be infected when they are still living together in enclosed areas like cruise ships or hotels? Who is paying for them to live in hotels and cruise ships?

  • More to come:

    The infected numbers will goes up much more when more testings are done..
    The spread is much wider than thought.
    Sad reality.
    More isolation centres is needed.
