PAP’s govt Covid-19 relief measures are third world not first world

Going by what Heng said in his Budget statement, you’d think that our spending would be Swiss-standard. Well the spending is not. And other developed countries are spending a lot more than the Swiss.

Ain’t it funny that our five part-time PAP mayors are each paid more than the full time mayor of London, a global city, while us plebs don’t get first world Covid-19 help. Not that I personally need any help. But life is hard for many.

  • $100bn Question:

    Nearly $100 billion given out for Covid-19 relief but still no details of how they were distributed? What were they spent on? Who received the biggest chunk of it? Who got the least? Was Parliament given a breakdown of the figures? Where is the accountability to the people? What if any has gone to waste or missing? Why Opposition no ask question?

  • Harder Truths:

    Nothing has been ‘given’. Whatever few cents they have put in your bank account will be used to pay the increase in fees, taxes and other rises in their government imposed costs.

    Who here has seen a cent of the so-called ‘relief measures’ anyway?

  • Harder Truths:

    Another Phase 3 drug or ‘vaccine’ now showing its flaws in Europe.

    The rollout of the AstraZeneca Covid vaccine in Denmark, Estonia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Latvia has been suspended as the health authorities investigate a possibly serious side effect in the form of fatal blood clots.

  • MOST money,grants go SIA:

    $16 Billions from COVID budgets go to bail out SIA and gagmt money mostly go to help gagmt companies.
    Little helps for layman in reality, when COMPARED WITH OTHER COUNTRIES.

    Reported on Straits Times :Quote-”India to review side effects of AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine after concerns in Europe

    Denmark, Norway and Iceland paused use of the AstraZeneca shot as a precaution after isolated reports of recipients developing blood clots.PHOTO: AFP
    NEW DELHI (AFP) – India will carry out a deeper review of post-vaccination side effects from the AstraZeneca shot next week although no cases of blood clots have been reported so far, an official told AFP Saturday (March 13).

    New Delhi decided to conduct the review after several countries suspended roll-out over blood clot fears even as the World Health Organisation (WHO) said there was no reason to stop using AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 jab.

    Denmark, Norway and Iceland paused use of the drugmaker’s shot as a precaution after isolated reports of recipients developing blood clots.

    “We are looking at all the adverse events, particularly serious adverse events like deaths and hospitalisation. We will come back if we find anything of concern,” Dr N. K. Arora, a member of India’s national task force on Covid-19, told AFP.

    India has given at least 28 million shots in its vast vaccination programme, most of them AstraZeneca’s, which are produced at the Serum Institute of India.

    New Delhi has also gifted and allowed exports of millions of these jabs to around 70 countries over the last few weeks as a part of its vaccine diplomacy.

    Dr Arora said there was “no immediate issue of concern as number of adverse events (in India) is very, very low. We are relooking at (adverse events that were reported) to see if there was any issue of blood clotting”.

    “As at yesterday, there were 59 or 60 deaths, and they were all coincidental,” the doctor said, adding that hospitalisation cases were being re-examined.

    “In fact, there is a real effort from our side that once complete investigation is done, to put its results in public domain, on the Ministry of Health website,” Dr Arora added.

    India has been using AstraZeneca and indigenous vaccine giant Bharat Biotech’s Covaxin in its rapidly expanding vaccination drive at home.

    At least two million people were vaccinated on Friday alone, and this ramp-up comes at a time when Covid-19 cases are rising across different Indian states after weeks of decline.

    The western state of Maharashtra has announced fresh restrictions and a week-long lockdown in one of its big cities, Nagpur, after the recent spike across the region.

    Fresh restrictions, including curbs on movement and public gatherings, were also reintroduced in some pockets of the state, which is also expected to impact the economic recovery in its industrial belt.

    “Some states in the country have been reporting very high number of daily new Covid cases. Maharashtra, Kerala, Punjab, Karnataka, Gujarat and Tamil Nadu continue..”Unquote.

    Response :India vaccine AstraZeneca is really a lousy vaccine !
