The Price You Pay When You Don’t Lockdown And Try To Keep The Economy Open

Boris Johnson’s government tried the herd immunity strategy in the UK for 1 week and backed off. New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Arden slammed the idea of herd immunity and imposed possibly one of the toughest lockdowns in the world early on. Today, New Zealand is effectively Covid free and is lauded as the country with the most impressive record for Covid.

A memorial in Stockholm's Mynttorget Square in memory of loved ones lost to the new coronavirus features candles, flowers and handwritten notes, some of which express frustration over Sweden's softer approach to curbing the illness.

I usually have a healthy respect for the Swedes and their progressive ideas, but on this occasion I think they are being delusional!

It shows you that when it comes to public health, don’t try to be too clever! The tried and tested way of extreme social-distancing is still the best. No need to try and reinvent the wheel.

    DO ANYONE WAIT FOR THE FIRE TO ESCALATE into a towering inferno before peeing his/her urine to contain the fire?

  • Lim Tean, Where's the video:

    Dear Lim Tean,
    You said you want to produce a video to show us Singaporeans how not to get sue for defamation.

    It has been 5 years now.. where is the video.

    Don’t try to be clever talk so much and cannot deliver.

    Typical 30% Singaporeans attitude. Want easy job with high salary but cannot deliver.

    Just ask Gilbert Goh the CARROT HEAD how many times he had been conned by lazy and unmotivated Singaporeans using fake stories to get easy money.

    Facts:

  • Die of Virus or Out of Job die:

    Dear Singaporeans,
    What would you choose:

    1. Die of virus or
    2. Out of job and die of hunger or
    3. Take calculated risk with precautionary measures and work it out?

    Frigging 30% Singaporeans are always scared of this and scared of that.
    船头怕风船尾怕雨。

    No wonder no company want to employ this group of 30% Singaporeans.

    Singaporeans are expensive and no talent (take 3 years to finish diploma compare to FT Ramesh who took 3 months to finish a legal diploma)

    Singaporeans cannot deliver yet had the audacity to demand high salaries.

  • REGIME CHANGE is the solution:

    Sweden provides free healthcare. It used the pandemic to reduce the number of elderly recipients of such care. COVID-19 killed a lot of them.

  • Zero $ for syncophants:

    I just wanna ask. If Covid 19 does not go away, are we going to be in circuit breaker mode forever? So shops remain closed and people remain umemployed?

    Are we not going to have a sociaal life? Entertainment? Everyday stay home indefinitely?

  • Zero $ for syncophants:

    I kind of agree with you. There are well paid people who can’t deliver. So would you go to a doctor who trained at NUS for six years or a doctor who studied for six months?

    So you are saying NUS, NTU, SMU and other local grads talentless? SO these unis should close shop? They produce worthless people to employers?

    Why some schools not recognised? You want to send your chio ren to diplomas for 3 months study?

  • Swapping PMs:

    If PM Arden is our PM we would have save billions.
    Because she was focussed on saving lives and not thinking of holding Pandemic GE.
    Bad leadership is very very costly.

    What appears safe, familiar will turn up to be the most dangerous.

  • Partial truth?:

    Not true.

    Japan another country in a way quite similar to Sweden. And surprisingly they are doing ok.

    My friend working in Japan thru skype told me japan measures all bs one. Wayang wayang only. No lock down or CB taken seriously. Who’s that ” went to japan ” moniker guy ? Sure you can still go to japan now ?

    Why all the negative news e.g. i dont know where and how i got infected by Covid ?

    Why not some positive news like e.g. i dont know why i havent contracted covid yet ? During CB i still jog every week without mask and warm up and down for half an hour ? I still roam around my estate with a simple fabric mask. I queue and package at coffee shops , hawker centers as usual. Before CB i dont bother to wear mask.

    None of our million$ millisters including pinky can stand next to this NZ fine lady for her capable and visionary leadership, love and empathy for her people.

    Our chaps are just self centred and self serving lot.
