Is the Safe Entry measures giving good results?

I read a news report today about the covid cases, possibly quoting from a news release from the ministry of health.

It mentioned the places where the infected patients had visited and asked members of the public who had visited these places to be alert about the possibility of being infected.

However, it assured the public not to worry, as it does not necessary mean that they had been infected. It further advised the public to see the doctor if they have some of the symptoms of covid, such as experience difficulty in breathing or fever.

I was quite confused about the message that the news report was trying to convey.

If there was no need for the public to panic, why mention the places that the infected patients had visited?

If a patient had some of the symptoms mentioned, surely they would have visited the doctor, regardless of whether they had visited the infected places?

The news report also mentioned that the close contacts, possibly identified by the Safe Entry records in the database, will be approached by the contact tracing ambassadors. But it did not mention how many people were identified from the database or the outcome of past tracing of these close contacts.

I suspect that the Safe Entry recording is probably not producing useful data, in spite of the large cost of implementing this measure. It probably involve several thousand of ambassadors who man the stations to record the Safe Entry data. I estimate the cost of these ambassadors to be several tens of million dollars a month.

Apart from the manpower cost, it is also adding lot of inconvenience to the public who visits shops, malls and workplaces.

I hope that the ministry of health will publish the results of the contact tracing efforts to justify the cost of carrying out the Safe Entry measures.

  • Pretender to the throne:

    The best place for LHYang to stand is either TanjongPagar or AMK.
    Knock out the Son-want-to-be or the Dishonourable Son.
    Yes the one that went uninvited to that Funeral.
    Claim to represent the Army at that Funeral; but was not in uniform.
    The very Arrogant-Sia-Suay.
    Try not to see the Acronym.
    –https://sg.news.yahoo.com/blogs/what-is-buzzing/mg-chan-chun-sing-m-not-related-lee-075225039.html
    Arrogant-Sia-Suay loves to look down on his own voters.
    Talk behind their backs.
    Zero substance handling Real world issues.
    Love to CosPlay as egg inspector–and be seen in MSM, ad nauseum.
    And like to talk about 1777 Langfang Republic; but do not realise people do not eat more eggs just because of Covid.
    Hence 250,000 eggs in his face.
    –Too many eggs in S’pore now due to oversupply from imports, 250,000 eggs thrown away–17th Jun, Mothership.

    @Pretender to the throne- LHY should not stand in AMK where his brother is the stronghold there. Maybe LHY should run in Tanjong Pagar stand a better chance.

    Talk about excessive 250,000 eggs thrown away wasted recently reported out. A couple of month back or so, quite remember the price of a tray of 30 eggs for Ang Mo supermarket think cost only $3.60. After wi**** Amy Khor Lean Suan hoarded some trays of eggs, the Ang Mo supermarket price for a tray of 30 eggs also skyrocketed up rapidly and recently drop back to now at $4.55.How come when 250,000 excessive eggs thrown away reported out, yet Ang Mo supermarket price for a tray of 30 eggs never drop back to $3.60 or lower. All those beast women at Ang Mo supermarket are still reaping in huge profits from a tray of 30 eggs. What is our government still sleeping. According to recent Lim Tean video of either some MPs or Ministers sleeping in government and never ask necessary questions. Is LHL also sleeping?

  • Better Safe Entry needed:

    Present Safe Entry system at many places are not that smart.

    Better to install integrated smarter system and not stand alone one like now.

    Waste of time and money.Not that effective.
