It took Covid-19 100 DAYS to expose the weak leadership of PAP Politicians

Singapore reported 788 new Covid19 cases at noon on Wednesday (May 6), taking the country’s total to 20,198.

The vast majority of the new cases are work permit holders residing in foreign worker (FW) dormitories, said the Ministry of Health in its daily update of preliminary figures.

Eleven cases are Singapore citizens or permanent residents.

As the number of infections rises, the skimpier is the report. How many are Singaporeans and how many are PRs?

It is also obvious that the public reporting is trying to divert attention of the seriousness of the rising infections to the FWs. Are infections in the FW dormitories different from local community infections?

It should be clear that the 10-member Multi-ministry Taskforce has failed Singapore in not being able to stem the spread of the Coronavirus in the city state of 5.7m people from late Jan till today. They owe all Singaporeans and residents an apology.

With no medical doctor with infectious diseases specialization in the Taskforce, why didn’t the two co-chairman Health Minister Gan Kim Yong and ND Minister think of mobilizing qualified infectious diseases specialists from the public and private Medical Service sector to help them to put up appropriate measures to contain the virus spread at an early stage? The Medical Service is not short of such expertise.

Probably, the Taskforce was meant to be a showcase of 4G leaders put in charge to handle a national crisis with the advantage of the SARS experience (at least according to PM Lee) and prepare them for the coming Election. Why the need to share the glory of success with others outside the closed circle?

While the PAP politicians in the Taskforce are quick to accept any accolades bestowed on Singapore in the early days of the pandemic, they are slow in admitting their failure in the task. Also, don’t expect them to say “sorry” as it is not their political culture.

So the deployment of medial experts came very late. It was only on April 22 that the infectious diseases medical specialists were brought into action through a panel discussion hosted by ST. For the first time, we heard their views about Covid19:

Prof Dale Fisher, Senior infectious diseases expert at NUH:

“I’m learning that this virus is really smart.”
“It can find our blind spots, it can find vulnerable people, it can find areas where there’s high transmission, despite our efforts.”

Prof Leo Yee Sin, executive director of NCID in TTSH:

“While SG learnt from dealing with SARS in 2003, no two outbreaks were alike.”
“This is very, very different from SARS,” she said, pointing to differences in terms of the scale of infections and the way the disease manifested in patients.
“This is a very smart virus, it will find ways to remain in the human population. So it’s not a simple virus for us to deal with. There is human-to-human transmission, it can transmit when we are not aware.”

Prof Teo Yik Ying, Dean of NUS Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health was the third medical specialist on the panel.

Prof Tan Chorh Chuan, MOH Chief Health Scientist who led the public health response to the SARS outbreak in 2003, was interviewed by ST on Apr 30 and he said “this Coronavirus is trickier to deal with than SARS.” Why wasn’t he allowed to speak up earlier?

Are the Taskforce politicians aware that the Coronavirus is a very smart virus in Feb or Mar? Has this virus out-smarted them and hence they were slow and late in implementing the CB, even later than Malaysia? Now, Malaysia requires entry permit for their own citizens to return home from Singapore, limiting only 400 per day.

Weak leaders don’t know their own inadequacies and lack of expertise in handling this virus pandemic to keep the people safe?

They believe too much in themselves.

Frankly, I am still puzzled how the entire Taskforce comprising PAP politicians and in particular, Manpower Minister Josephine Teo, could all miss the “ Elephant in the Room”, the over 300,000 FWs living in 43 purpose-built dormitories and over 1000 other accommodations throughout Singapore, in crowded and congested environments and in not the most hygienic conditions, a perfect breeding ground for any infectious disease? Are they weak leaders as they seem to miss even the most obvious in front of their eyes?

How did other countries, with bigger populations like China, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong (and Macau), Vietnam and even New Zealand manage to contain the virus spread and now gradually re-opening their workplaces, schools and industries and loosening up social distancing measures so that their countries can soon return to normalcy? Do they have much stronger leaders like President Moon Jae-in of South Korea whose stunning election victory was an endorsement of his firm leadership in handling Covid19 and New Zealand’s PM Jacinda Arden who “declares victory against spread of virus” (ST28-4-20) and also ordered a 20 per cent pay cut for all her ministers and herself for the next six months?

Covid19 pandemic exposes the social divisions within local families and their school-going children. Education Minister Ong Ye Kung must have his reasons for resisting the closure of all schools and institutes of higher learning until after a one-day trial run of Home-based Learning that he dared to order the closure on Apr 8 to May 4. “With schools closed and online learning in full swing, fault lines in the digital space have begun to emerge in the harsh light of the pandemic,” highlighted in an article “How home-based learning shows up inequality in Singapore-a look at three homes,” ST26-4-20.

According to Second Minister for Education Indranee Rajah, “schools have loaned more than 20,000 computing devices and 1,600 internet enabling devices to date.” (ST5-5-20). Much has been said of the help given to the lower 10-20 per cent of Singapore’s society but we know the the real issues of social inequality are not solidly addressed over the last few decades resulting in social divides in the student population. This points back to the weak leadership of PAP politicians entrusted with the responsibilities of uplifting society and making sure that “no one is left behind”, a nice sounding narrative that is hollow to the less endowed families and their children. Stronger leaders would have fixed this social problem long ago.

The PAP politicians in the Taskforce must be thinking long and hard on how and when to dismantle the CB and resume all the economic activities as many other countries which imposed strict lockdown measures have started to open-up and return to normal gradually.

I really hope these PAP politicians won’t follow suit so quickly because Singapore was one of the last countries to go into any form of restrictions and I doubt they can really manage the pandemic if there is a sudden flare-up from the dormitories to the local community. Don’t forget, “the spaces they now live in are within our communities: HDB blocks in Jurong and Bukit Merah, Northshore Primary School in Punggol, as well as the former Anderson Junior College hotel in Ang Mo Kio.” (ST30-4-20).

With the passing of the Parliamentary Elections (Covid19 Special Arrangements) bill into law, we should expect the PAP politicians to be going into Election mode. If “political opportunism” matters more than public health and an Election will indeed be called soon, Covid19 could well be their “Waterloo.”

This is the opinion of a Pioneer Citizen.

  • Boh Kia See:

    It is obvious to me that the GE will definitely be held before the end of the pandemic.

    The reason being that the PAP cannot afford not to do so. After the pandemic Singapore’s economy will be in such a poor state that even firm supporters of the PAP will flee to other parties like fleas leaving a dying rat.

    It is this phase that the PAP is afraid of that is why there no a reluctance for lock downs and school closures. But when lock downs became inevitable, they have to contend with the increasing unemployment of Singapore citizens when the economy re-opens for business.

    It must also be obvious to everyone that the PAP always calculates their actions and laws to ensure their survival. That seems to be a well known fact. What citizens should realise now that they do not count in the PAP’s plans for survival and longevity. Citizens and their future can be sacrificed at the alter of the PAP.

    Singapore citizens should wake up and take stock of their country and their future as well as their children’s future if the system that the PAP has in place and their mindset continues.

    VTO will be the logical conclusion when you analyse the situation.

    Not against the PAP but for Singapore.

    VTO the PAP.

    Like Simon ALWAYS say: THINK! ALL AND EVERY VOTER in the coming Pandemic Erection should on COOLING OFF DAY aka the DAY Before the GE, THINK VERY HARD AND LOONG of their FUTURE, AND FUTURE GENERATIONS BEFORE THEY STEP INTO THE POLLING BOOTH TO MARK ON THE BALLOT PAPER!

    THINK how Mai Hum and his WORLD CLASS MINISTERIAL MULTI-MILLIONAIRE TRASH FORCE have DEALT and HANDLED Covid 19 crisis, especially their IMPOTENCY, COMPLACENCY AND INCOMPETENCE,. The END RESULT is that TENS of $BILLIONS of TAXPAYERS’ HARD EARNED MONEY have to been SPENT to COVER UP THEIR HONEST MISTAKES!

    LHL and the task force have prove beyond a reasonable doubt that they are INCAPABLE and INCOMPETENT of fighting the corona epidemic.
    LHL was TALKING COCK when he said that the corona cases will start going down from the 17th April.He was also TALKING COCK when he said things were under control.
    For LHL to talk about elections and a fresh mandate for the 4 g leaders is to SIDE TRACT the citizens attention.They have proofed that they are POWERLESS and THE MERCY of the virus.What assurance do we have that after the elections they will be able to contain and fight the epidemic?
    LHL has shown that he DOES NOT HAVE THE IRON IN HIM TO GOVERN SINGAPORE.He is a FUCKING JELLY FISH,WITHOUT BACKBONE.He SHOULD HAVE SACKED Josephine TEO long ago.
    This BITCH who has sex in small places IS NOT MINISTER CALIBER.She should be HR manager in one of the ST companies.
    This BITCH is one of the reasons why we are the no 1 infected country in South East Asia and no 3 in all of Asia.This BITCH still does NOT BELIEVE IN SAYING SORRY.
    Josephine ,LHL and the ministers in the TASK FORCE MUST STEP DOWN OR BE VOTED OUT.These MFUCKER do not deserve there million dollar pay.

    Those so-called experts called it a ‘smart virus’. Well then virus is suitable for SG… since SG is a ‘smart nation’.
    Those PhD expert jokers should juz acknowledge the novel coronavirus as it is, not smart, but only a simple, microscopic organism that hijacks human cells to replicate.

    The obvious problem is that SG, a tiny island, is simply too dense & overcrowded.
    How many foreign workers (all categories) do we have with us on this island SG?

    The obvious groupthinking, herd mentality & ‘Yes’ people in the govt sector, commited such a impactful mistake.
    With their high income & their ivy league education, they cant even see or miss the ‘Elephant in room’…. sad but true.

    If S’poreans’r still ignorant & dont voice out, we local naives, will be the minorities, in our own country.

  • Game over for PAP:

    Mr Kok, you are spot on.
    All Singaporeans will agree with your statement – ” It took Covid-19 100 DAYS to expose the weak leadership of PAP Politicians”.

    Election is expected within next 100 days, PAP will be defeated in at least 2 GRCs and 5 SMCs. Singaporeans have woken up, thanks to Covid-19.

    The key 4G team players – CCS, JT, LW, Gan – have lost the legitimacy to continue in their Minister roles. They are basically incompetent fat cats, earning million $$ salary, without any shame or conscience.

    Emperor should never assume the Minister Mentor role, after election. His LEEgacy has died and his Empress creativity of her secret salary has become a laughing stock.

    We need to get rid of all dishonorable people out of Parliament and also cancel CECA and POFMA. All Singaporeans will support this !!!

    Even the WASHINGTON POST has to honestly report what is UNFLATTERING of the Singapore, once trumpeted as the Gold Standard. Now it’s siasuay LaoKwee standard.

    To be fair, REACTION wise , sg is the gold standard. Haha. Mainly because it’s small to manage. One fart can travel quite a bit here in proportion to its length.

    State media won’t report so unflatteringly honestly.

    Many doctors in sg never voiced against the stupid advisory not to wear mask of not yet infected. Wear after infected.

    These people WEAR WHITE. Men in White.
    Intellectually dishonest. Lack of moral courage and professional ethics.

    They cite excuses for being so. The fact notwithstanding.

    Many work in sperm-linked companies.

    They all try to sugar coat the failure.

    Within Asia there are any countries hiring many banglas but pound for pound, per capita , per square foot wise , I suspect SG has more bangs. This shows how much cheap labor it relies on. I won’t say it EXPLOITED.

    Most Singaporeans have not been able to discern this failure because they are brainwashed by state media which presents sugar coated news to them and omitting as unflattering news where it deem necessary.

    Over decades many zombies created.
    Eg. If you ask zombies why are there so many banglas in sg, they tell you TextBook scripted answers they receive from State media, word for word. And they never realise they are brainwashed. They say it’s because citizens are lazy. In fact it could not have been so if not for the open leg policies that the cronies wanted and need to profit and survive. Many business people in SG are not entrepreneurial. They just import and sell. Their differentiation to stay alive is by CONNECTIONS. SUCKING UP, CRONYISM. Without which they are bankrupt.

It has definitely exposed the erotic stupidity of the US n its undeserved world leadership role which has now been definitively shown to be instillator of animosity among nation so as to benefit from it with pretentiously so called controlled sale but really to further US interests.

    There is one Assoc. Prof in the task force, Dr. Kenneth Mak. He was appointed as an adviser or consultation for team pertaining to the medical aspect of this Covid-19.

    During the time when PM said “wear mask only when you are unwell and going to see a doctor”, why did this A/P Mak said the same thing? Why he did not support the 4 doctors who wrote that “mask was necessary”?

    I just cannot understand why suddenly so many Profs from every where started saying thing like; “this virus is really smart”, “find ways to remain in the human population”, “There is human-to-human transmission,”; Where were these professors when an idiot said “no need to wear masks”??!!!

    Was it because of the size of their balls that prevented them for saying it then?

    Flabbergasted:
    Time for regime change..let’s all put our efforts no matter how small by converting our friends, colleagues (civil servants in particular), golf kakis, club members, neighbours and family of the need for a regime change. If we don’t do it now, we will never have another opportunity like this time ever again. So everyone let’s make it happen..VTO…regime change..

    Cheers

    The thought of VTO cheers. Cheers to VTO, CB or no CB.
