How effective is the 14 day Stay Home Notice?

I read a report that a 35-year-old visitor was tested positive for Covid-19, two weeks after completing her stay-home notice (SHN).

My concern is on the cost of the Stay Home Notice to the traveler. The restriction meant that the traveler is not allowed to engage in any activity for 14 days. What is the purpose when it does not help to prevent the spread of the virus?

It is even more costly to require a traveler has to stay in isolation in a hotel for 14 days.

Rather than keep the traveller under SHN or isolation, I refer that they be tested for covid on entry and if found negative, they do not need to be kept under SHN or isolation. Instead, they can be asked to monitor their temperature every day for 14 or 21 days. If they have a temperature, they should go for another covid test.

We should not impose a high cost for the SHN or isolation, when the actual benefit is questionable.

There should be a balance between the actual risk and the cost of the SHN and isolation measures.

If we find, from actual experience, that incoming visitors without symptoms are spreading the virus seriously, we can return to the SHN/ isolation measures. In the meantime, there is no need to incur such a heavy cost when the actual benefit is questionable.

  • I agree with Tan on the SHN. The SHN is a freaking joke and absolutely ineffective against the potential spread of teh C19 virus.

    The only thing that it is successfully effective at is wasting the person’s time and money.

  • Harder Truths:

    Again it’s nothing to do with the CoVID – so the answers are not there.

    It is simply the regime training the citizens to do exactly as they are told and implanting the subconscious message that you must never disobey them or bad things will happen to you.

    Very bad things. Terrible things. Unspeakable things.

    Citizens are so terrified of getting punished they will be just glad nothing has happened to them, even though they did not do anything wrong.

    This is what control is all about. Enjoy and let the good times roll.

    I agree absolutely, how can it even be effective with so many weak links?

    https://www.gov.sg/article/everything-you-need-to-know-about-the-stay-home-notice

    Now the current policy is once a person is confrimed infected, he/she is issued with a SHN. So my questions are:

    1. Not already infected family members how? Stay together won’t kenna? C19 will spread to all family members, right?
    2. Say can see doctor, will spread to taxi drivers also right?

    I could go on and on from the list, but I think you get the picture already.

    IMHO, to effectively control the spread of teh C19, Quarantine is a MUST for ALL infected person, symptomatic or not.

    Which stoopid so-called experts came up with the SHN idea anyway?

    I think it is good that people start to realize that we are all ruled either by a bunch of incompetent elites or a team of control freaks taking steps to condition us.

    Even a vaccine means nothing today, a vaccine means you still can get the virus, and still have to SHN, where is an end but simply condition us all to follow incompetent rulings?

    Fxxk the so call experts who flip flop everyday, now and then. My 10 years old niece is smarter, she said : it will not end anyway, ultimately we all gonna catch it, sooner or later, live or just died, it will be part of our DNA.
    Vaccine is just injecting us who yet to have it to confirm have it! Why need to do so when ultimately you still can get infected after 打小针针.

    Shame on you, experts!

    After seeing what China did, I have been pondering since day 1 Sinkieland reported the 1st instance of C19 as to WHY for a cuntry the size smaller than the town I currently reside in (with a population of about 9 million), the LEEders are reluctant to carry out a mass testing of the C19 to weed it out once and for all.

    China took only less than a week to completely test the mega-city Beijing and Wuhan, for a cuntry as small as Sinkieland, surely it would take about 3 days.

    Call me dumb, but to date I can only venture a guess that other than them being absolutely clueless as to what they are dealing with, they are planning for “herd immunity”, risking the lives of Sillyzens to achieve it. The fact that they dilly-dally the infected cases in the dorms and allowing it to infect 100k FTs seems to suggest that the “herd immunity” logic maybe not without truth.

    Other than that. MAYBE like what some readers have suggested, they want to keep the pandemic alive so that they can continue to use it to their advantage to ‘manipulate’ the Sillyzens and freely touch the reserves (i.e. left hand to right hand thingy)?

    Anyone else has better hunches?

    Dear @ TRE Techie,

    I think what you thought make sense (and many others). And govs worldwide think we peasants are all as ignorant as generations before the internet era.

    Yes, they still control msm media, and in fact, they create and control many more so call independent ‘social journalists’ or ‘independent media’ too, if most people not yet realise.

    It is very important that we generate our own conclusion in our own way. And when we share our information, we see a huge potential varieties of possibilities which true or not, the govs will categorize them as fake news in order to be the authority of truth.

    I remembered in end Dec 2019 when i first received information on outbreak of Sars-like virus, it was classified by many different sources as fake news until after 1st week of Jan 2020. Today, no one bother how fake news on ‘true news’ can be more damaging.

    There are tons and heaps of possibilities on how this ‘fake’ pandemic will go forward. Some of us continue to search further while most of us play ‘dead’ and allow whatever the experts and elites say and do to determine our aggregated fate.

    Back on SG, why there is no nation wide testing? I think there could be three main possibilities:
    1. The result of tests will ‘reveal’ a significantly larger number;
    2. The cost of mass testings and most probably many more repeated and repeating tests will be a leaking tap on cost which will not end in short term;
    3. An unknown fear is easier to manage than a known one and better capitalized on. It also provides a rare opportunity to hide failures in economy management over the years and gives it a good reset. When reaches the lowest point, the only direction is up. Whatelse will be better to put blame but on a faceless virus?

    Just my 2c

    If we can reduce the imported cases, our nation can be safer! The daily statistics show that foreigners, and their families, and those on work/employment passes are the ones who bring in the Covid 19 virus.
    Will the Govt considers halting this category for the moment until they are vaccinated in their own country?

    And one thing…, how current global direction is going, someone could be creating an exclusive international club and starting to get more ‘members’ on board.

    A ‘club’ which further enhance the ‘green-lane’, ‘travel-bubble’ into digital passport system. The big techs are aggressively pushing it behind the scene globally, probably with the vaccines manufacturers. Big techs wants more data into the cloud, into the servers, while vaccines makers want more for their products and REPEAT CUSTOMERS are needed!

    Very simple to understand. If your customer only comes one time, get ready to go bankrupt. Businesses not only need larger and growing customer base, they also need repeated customers and wish no competitions.

    Disposable vs metal spoon vs ceramic spoon, which is more profitable to manufacture? Which is more welcomed by the government?

    So some of us thinks population economy is not right. I don’t disagree, yet i say, don’t be naive. We create a monster to rule us, and we expect the monster to be humble and be vegetarian…. are we adults with a 3 year old mind?

    Many loopholes in these measures.

    1) Children at certain age don’t need to wear masks!? Hello? Aren’t children’s immunity supposed to be lower?!
    2) Packed trains vs swimming pools. Why do I need to book swimming time slots? Why caan’t I shower after my swim?
    3) Why are restaurants penalised for having too many patrons?
    4) If Covid is as serious as the Black Plague, then half of Europe would be dead?
    5) The measures look like a very clever “divide and conquer” strategy. Because people have to be separated, to be anti social because of some supposedly deadly infection.

    Don’t really add up.
