Covid 19 swab test will be available to the public

I welcome the news that C19 swab test will be available to the public without approval from 01 December 2020. I have a suggestion.

The going rate for a swab test is about S$200/. I know that many people are very, very worried and concerned about themselves and their family members contracting C19, especially the seniors at home, the little ones or their pregnant wives etc.

Many fellow citizens among us are leading very belt tightening lives these day. S$200/ for a swab test to the high income earners or the wealthy is really lose change but to too many everyday Singaporean uncles and aunties, that amount could easily be more than 10% of their monthly take home pay or about a week of their personal expenses.

I would like to strongly urge the government to allow all our citizens who earn less than $60,000 annually to use their CPF medisave to pay for their swab test.

Citizenship, especially the working class and our struggling citizens should have this privelege in a time like now.

This is not entitlement mentality, much less raiding their medisave savings. This is unlike the pap government’s frivolous spending on building the Founders’ Memorial or their ministers demanding to be paid the world’s highest political salaries or New Year countdown fireworks splashing etc.

This is true compassion and understanding shown by a caring government for its citizens’ healthcare needs wrapped in its policy decision.

Think.

    Simple Simon,…they spend Billions on Biz & Tech & Lifestyle…it should be Provided FREE to all and they can well AFFORD it…but will they???

    To let the PGs & MGs die and claimed it is a Natural Death is the SIMPLE way to rid the useless in their EYES to Maintain the Elite Society that a Bastard Built an ILLUSION for…

    Why is it so difficult for the Patriots to UNDERSTAND when the Bastard claims that all man is “Born Not Equal” some are MORE Equal and to RID these pests and Lower Mortals to Have The Elite Society he Time and Again REPEAT even as he crawled towards his Coffin drag by the DEMONS???

    Ignore the Facts and NOT the Fake news provided or die as you deservedly DESERVE

  • Using our CPF again:

    Please stop asking gov to take our CPF.

    There are already so many deductions.

    The first test should be free to every citizen. What is the $100 billion for? Most citizens only get a few hundred, much less than the $23,225 mention by MP Tin.

    Hopefully, those “clever” people stop asking gov to take more from our CPF! STOP!

  • Simon a Mole?:

    You must be out of your mind!. Trying to mind condition the People here in TRE.

    Those foreign workers in the dorms done swap for free and ICU for free. There is completely no rationale to making citizen of the land pays for what the government ought to be protecting. Soon will they make it compulsory to dig into our Medisave savings for the test? KNN!

    Is he a PAPi mole?

  • @Simon a Mole?

    Precisely, FTs got it for free, why Sinkies must pay?

    Besides, China swapped a few major cities for free, what happened to the supposedly $100b which the gahment says it is spending, each got $600 also no $100b wat.

    I am curious how much of the $100b went to GLCs as subsidies, etc etc etc, if any.

    On a related note, Sinkieland appears to be busy importing C19, if MOH’s stats are anything to go by. PRs and silllyzens I can understand must let in, but FTs? Hm…

    Scared local not enough C19 to prolong the fear factor into the next GE issit? lol

  • Pap gaming the ppl:

    TODAY reported Mr Chan as saying so in response to a question on whether the launching of the new pass will result in stiffer competition of top jobs for local talents.

    “This is not about replacing the locals… These are the entrepreneurs that we want. It is not about working for one particular company to take the locals’ jobs – this is a totally different kettle of fish altogether,” he remarked.

    Quote

    PAP is running out of idea …..period

    Puppets like Chan should be dunk, GUTTERS DUNG..

  • xoxo:

    Is healthcare cost irrationally expensive here?
    This must be the GOVT CONCERN

    Upping MEDISHIT PREMIUM after looting $100 Billion from sgs’reserves and giving out ineqquitably is surely wrong.
    Compounding the *wrong* with increasing MEDICAĹ COST is $infuĺ.

    Karma will find her way back to the $inner.
