World Economic Forum held in Singapore in May 2021

The World Economic Forum will be held in Singapore in May 2021.

Many people are worried that this event will lead to a large spike in covid infections in Singapore. They asked for the event to be canceled to avoid the health risk.

I am not worried. The health risk is small, for the following reasons:

1. The visitors will be tested for covid before leaving their countries and on arrival in Singapore.
2. Safe distancing measures will be implemented during the event.
3. Any infection of the asymptomatic people is likely to be mild.
4. We have already been receiving arrivals into Singapore for some time. The increase of arrivals during the WEF will be higher, but will not be massive.

I expect a small spike in infection during the WEF but it is likely to be contained.

We should take the small risk of hosting the World Economic Forum in Singapore.

  • Mr Tan, I am willing to sponsor you a plane ticket to come visit TongHua or HeiLongJian in Jiling province for a 7-day tour. Go look-see look-see the hospitals, estates, gardens and take a bus and tour the city.

    After 7 days, when you return to Sinkieland un-infected, you can repeat the above again. Honestly, I find your obsession with the “low risk” BS is unbelievable.

    You are so bloody ill-informed and think that just because the C19 virus don’t bite as hard as those around the world, so Sinkieland is safe?

    IMHO, the reason why Sinkieland has such a low infection rate is because the gahment is not testing everybody and most of the cases are asymptomatic. Do a mass test like what China did and you will probably find hundreds or thousands of infected residents.

    Additionally, because Sinkieland is hotter than most other countries, therefore the C19 virus is not very active due to it being more adaptable to cooler temperatures.

    So far you have not been bitten, so don’t assume that the C19 won’t bite you or anybody else.

    Better to be safe than sorry.

  • No test, no case:

    Sg gov is very smart. Those people understand:

    more tests, more cases.
    no test, no case.

    It’s the same attitude they take to treat the poor. More welfare applications, more poor people. Fewer applications, fewer poor. So giv must have few welfare schemes and damn hard applications. Even the persistent Mr Folksy Tan gave up with those application forms.

    The recent community cases appeared because some events have compulsory test. Which idiots impose that, and sabo the nice big fat zero community cases?

    Mr Tan, now you understand what they think of your suggestion to have free convenient test centres? Cannot. You want the cases to shoot to the sky?

    @ TKL,

    YOU MUST BE THE ONLY COVID-19 VIRUS sneaking around in LEE-jiapore.

    Otherwise, how do you know this “fact” of your asserted claim in TRE?

    Tan Kin Lian :Any infection of the asymptomatic people is likely to be mild.

    YOU MUST BE THE VIRUS that unilaterally decides/determines exclusively that YOUR INFECTION of the asymptomatic victims to be mild and not severe?

    If the contrary is true, you must be engaging in your usual moanings and groanings akin to the descript of XIAO-KOW-LUAN-PUI (mad-puppy-anyhow-bark).

  • Asymptomatic ones:

    Mr Tan does not accept news that contradict what he believes.

    1) He found a WHO video (8 Jun2 2020) that was interpreted as asymptomatic ones are not likely to infect others.

    The WHO Says Covid-19 Asymptomatic Transmission Is ‘Very Rare’
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NQTBlbx1Xjs

    2) However, the WHO immediately (9 June 2020) clarified that the video had been misinterpreted.

    ‘We don’t actually have that answer yet’: WHO clarifies comments on asymptomatic spread of Covid-19
    https://www.statnews.com/2020/06/09/who-comments-asymptomatic-spread-covid-19/

    3) In Nov 2020, a Nature publication says
    “People without symptoms can pass on the virus, but estimating their contribution to outbreaks is challenging. ”
    https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-020-03141-3

    “Research early in the pandemic suggested that the rate of asymptomatic infections could be as high as 81%. But a meta-analysis published last month1, which included 13 studies involving 21,708 people, calculated the rate of asymptomatic presentation to be 17%. ”

    4) It thus seem that asymptomatic infections are lower than symptomatic. But, this is especially for MR TAN, nowhere does the science reports say that asymptomatically infected people have less serious covid. That is, if you get covid from an asymptomatic person, it can be very serious also.

    Mr Tan is stating his beliefs that have zero scientific evidence.

    oxygen: @ TKL,

    YOU MUST BE THE ONLY COVID-19 VIRUS sneaking around in LEE-jiapore.

  • TEMUSIK PATRIOT:

    I was reluctant to response but had to since we want to be like the SWISS but NOT having their Brains and Foresight…

    @Peak of the Evil Virus and still RAMPANT… offer the venue to a Nation Seeking Firsts and Glory NOT through Merit but Stoopidity passing off as SMART

    One year later with the virus less potent or PASSED the venue will be Back in Switzerland the Land of Watches… and “Time of Peace neutrality at War Time”

    That!!! is a truly “SMART NATION” Switzerland and NOT the wannabee Swiss of 2010

  • oxygen:

    @ Asymptomatic ones:

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH for your contribution and illumination. @ TKL is NOT even logical, often is, in his frequent writings for TRE publishing, is ILLOGICAL and sometimes I see as contrary to even simple common sense.

    Other TRE readers have also rebuffed him.

    Really disappointing, I feel, for someone who had, once, seek the highest office in the land.

    Asymptomatic ones: Mr Tan does not accept news that contradict what he believes……….Mr Tan is stating his beliefs that have zero scientific evidence.
