Covid-19 case onboard a Royal Caribbean cruise

I read with interest that a suspected C19 case onboard a Royal Caribbean cruise, Quantum of the Seas, has resulted in the cruise being turned back to Singapore earlier than schedule.

C19 is still with us even as some countries have started rolling out mass vaccinations for their populations. The efficacy and effectiveness of C19 vaccination is still unknown and to blindly believe that people will be safe from contracting C19 even after being vaccinated is in my view, premature and foolish even.

I welcome C19 vaccination and I think that it is a big step forward but at the same time, it is also very clear in my mind that as countries including Singapore slowly relax their movement control measures, it is not because C19 is firmly under control and it is safe to do so now but because of economic reasons.

The bottom line must be that people are responsible for their own and their families’ decisions, behaviours and safety.

I wish everybody safe and well.

Think.

    Covid is here there and everywhere under your bed in your closet and the very air you BREATH!!!

    Like the Poxes small big and medium built the virus will remain on earth as long as it will be and to eradicate or eliminate it???

    Why??? Live with it and let it pass like the Plague & Flu that killed millions B4 going into Hibernation…

    Believe it or NOT it is the evil of Man that is worse than the plagues that travel around the world…

    Stay true to yourself and your love ones and your neighbours too…AND all will be well

    Reported on Straits Times :Quote -”Salmonella and stomach flu cases in Newton pre-school rise to 60….

    A total of 60 children aged between 18 months and six years have fallen ill.ST PHOTO: CHONG JUN LIANG

    SINGAPORE – The pre-school in Newton that saw an outbreak of salmonella and stomach flu has engaged a new food supplier, as it emerged that 60 children aged between 18 months and six years have fallen ill.

    They make up about one-third of the 175 children enrolled at Kiddiwinkie Schoolhouse @ Newton.”Unquote .

    Response : With so many people get sick ,limbs cut off from salmonella virus ,stomach flu,Hepatitis spread and deaths,died ftom dengue ,and even cockroach running inside bus 34(saw one cockroach in bus 34 yesterday night),and cockroaches multiply and wide spread all over Singapore reported on news think evenby Chee Soon Juan too(if I remember correctly),how could the country not hauled out both evil beasts Amy Khor Lean Suan and Masagoes to be charged and send them to jail for keeping the whole tons of environment money in their town council account or whatever.Look at the massive fallen leaves everywhere all the years and one understand that the environment is not well maintained  by these two evil beasts !

    While everybody pays S&CC fees,why is those mosques frequently spray with insectides to kill mosquitoes while the rest of the estate are not really massively spray when dengue comes ? Why should mosque surrounding area have more insectide spray than others while other area also facing mosquitos problem ? Is that proper ? I have seen those environment surrounding the mosque often spray with insectides when there is dengue news ,why ? Shouldn’t the rest of the estate where everybody pays S&CC and environment disposal money be equally spray with insectides too . It is time to punish these two evil environment beasts ministers before more people died.

    Want to produce artificial plant base meat ? Wait till more people died from unknown cancer ? Not possible ? Wait till all those active cells from those plant based meat eaten into one’s body and may multiply rapidly such that a lot of funny disease start to appear with no solutions,wake up that possibility ?

    And did Mr Tan K L call for the govt bear the full cost of the vaccine or give a big subsidy ? Another fat hope. Now vaccine price is $200 in clinic.Wait till government increase price to maybe $600 and give a one off subsidy of $400. Back to Square one and worse!!!

    Let them have choice…and be solely responsible for it.
    Actually Cruise is not the safest place …confined space.
    Just ensure their action does not affect others in Singapore.

  • Murder by 19:

    It is well known that many old folks on cruises had died from covid-19.

    When a very old person goes on a cruise now, there is a high chance that
    1) he is on a suicide mission, or
    2) he is a victim of a murder plot.

    Right?

  • Surveillance Nation:

    Tourism, cruises and holiday travel will have to wait as Europe and USA are experiencing a surge, and cases are still showing up in HK and China. The virus travels with people who are asymptomatic, and most contagious before symptoms show up. Being together in groups for extended period of time within confined areas like planes and cruise ships could expose you to someone who is asymptomatic. Test results are not always accurate. Risk management is ok but do not be lulled into complacency by false assurances. Road trips to Malaysia may be safer if you book into AirBnB and cook-in, but keep your mask on in public places.

  • Surveillance Nation:

    Vaccines provide some level of protection but it’s not full-proof and it may take years to fully realize their side-effects. Vaccination is needed to slow down and contain the virus. Until a large number of the population is vaccinated, people will have to be vigilant in wearing the mask and hand-washing.

  • Harder Truths:

    Trust these idiots to take a cruise after there have been so many ships stranded after one passenger is (maybe) found with the disease. Must be pappy voters.

    BOTH POSTS ARE WELL-SAID – each is responsible for his/her own healthcare vigilance and risks containment.

    The covid-19 pandemic has a CHAOTIC BEGINNING at source, its ending cannot be so BEAUTIFULLY CALM of conclusion.

    VACCINATION is only a skin-thin vulnerable layer of protection cover – the side effects is life-betting of risks undertaking.

    Would the doctors in the frontline all volunteer to be the guinea pigs?
