Stay home notice is illogical, unnecessary and wasteful

Singapore requires incoming travelers to observe a 14 day Stay Home Notice (SHN). They are required to be isolated in a hotel room for 14 days. This is to prevent the spread of the covid virus.

I find this requirement to be illogical, unnecessary and wasteful. Here are my reasons:

a) A person can move about freely in his home country, subject to the safe distancing and masking requirement.

b) If this person travels to Singapore, he (or she) is required to observe the Stay Home Notice.

c) If he is already infected, he would have spread the virus in his home country. The fact is – he is not spreading the virus.

d) When he enters Singapore, he is already tested for the virus and found to be negative. Indeed, he is less likely to be infected than a local who has not been tested.

Instead of imposing the SHN on all travelers, we can afford to remove this requirement for people who are tested to be negative.

There is a small risk that this person could be infected and spread the virus. We can afford to take the chance and see if it leads to a serious spread of the virus. If it does, we can reimpose the SHN on all travelers.

It is more likely that there is no spread of the virus, or any spread is not serious. If this is the outcome, we can re-open the borders and revive travel industry.

To play safe, we should continue to test all incoming travelers for the virus.

We should not continue the 14 day SHN as it is illogical, unnecessary and wasteful.

    This article contains too many stupid assumptions and I will not waste my time rebutting because it’s difficult to reason with a fool! I urge the editors to do your job and only allow publications of articles that talk sense!

  • Time to Free Up:

    Why call it “Stay Home Notice” when it fact the person is quarantined or staying in a hotel? If it is “stay home” the person should be at his home or place of residence. It may be more accurate to call it “Stay In Notice” (SIN instead of SHN}. No tourists or travellers will want to be locked inside a hotel room for 14 days like a prisoner. Only “foreigners working in SG” will do it. For a start, only let travellers with authentic proof of vaccination on board the plane and if they clear the test at the airport, they are free to roam. Almost certain, they will adopt this approach for the WEF.

  • NotMyProblem:

    @Mr Tan; Please note that foreigners were tested negative before boarding the planes, after few hours of flying, they were tested positive on arrival. How to explain?

    One explanation could be there was no testing at all at the departure countries, passengers could be paying for the “negative test”!!

    When tested positive, infected foreigners were treated by SG hospitals paid by SG taxpayers!! The foreigners were so grateful to our PAP government.

  • Reality Check:

    I disagree with your views Mr Tan. It is not time yet to loosen SHN Restrictions now as other countries especially those in Europe and South America are experiencing the 3rd wave of the Coronavirus infection. I believe the strict restrictions at our borders and the SHN have helped keep our community & dorminatory infections low.

  • Insurance Asso talking cock:

    Straits Times: Having more doctors on IP panels may lead to higher premiums: Life Insurance Association

    This is bullshit.

    What is most needed here is OPENNESS and TRANSPARENCY.

    (1) How are members of the panel of insurance companies selected?

    (2) How are the fees for consultation and medical procedures determined?

    It appears those in the panel are prepared to set lower fees because they know being in the panel will mean more patients (from other doctors not in the panel). So lower fees can still give a significant increase in income if there are more patients.

    Also the the Competition Commission of Singapore (CCS) should do some work and look closely into the competition in the life insurance industry. They likely operate as a cartel in cahoots with a selected group of doctors.

  • SHN should stay:

    TKL assumes the test for COVID is foolproof. It is not. It is better (and prudent) to be safe than sorry. SHN should remain.

  • TCB will be "fixed" again:

    Straits Times: Francis Yuen is new PSP chief, taking over from founder Tan Cheng Bock

    The next election for Elected President is in 2023. Following amendments to the Constitution of Singapore, the 2023 presidential election will be open to candidates of any racial group BUT additional criteria might be added to qualify as a candidate like maximum age of candidate must be below 70. This disqualifies TCB because he is 80+ in 2023.

    There are many sheep who claim sg is democratic.

    We are all deprived of our democratic right to run for President. If the highest office is not open for you, what kind of democracy is this?

    If this continues, even MP candidates must meet criteria. Must be a certified professional party plp to run?

    Comrade Tan is waiting for the Sinovac to be approved in SG. He will be the first in line to prove that it is safe. If he wants to get it earlier, he will have to take a boat to Batam or Tanjong Pinang. Maybe he already got his Pfizer jab on a “case by case basis.” LOL!

    All the vaccines are somewhat Rushed Vaccines?
    More like gene therapy experimenting on geniepigs?
    Could it be just a pack of lies?

    With new Cornavariants which are more fatal, the current vaccines are futile and wasteful; unable to catchup!

    So, every year, every geniepig must get vaccinated with new rushed vaccines?

    Too much hellth!

Exposed n Sinkies still docile so female joe must as well expose her man roped in to be well fed by the naive sinkies n papian brownoser, bootlicker n cootlicker at daft SINkies expense re SIN State Fund.
