An 88 years old cleaner infected with Covid-19

An 88 years old cleaner who worked at Changi Airport terminal 3 was one of the two C19 community cases reported on Thursday. [LINK]

Please read slowly again.

An 88 years old cleaner working at Changi Airport terminal 3 infected with C19!

Although I do not know that person, I know that even if it were a 78 years old senior working as a cleaner would have alearly [sic] invited much curiosity, sympathy and condemnations of the government, let alone an 88 years old elderly cleaner. Many people don’t even live close to that age.

I dare say that cleaner is a mirror image of many of our seniors going forward in the not too distant future.

One, our people are living longer lives but often times, longer lives are painful, sickly lives full of all sort of medical problems that involve dependent care, extract financial tolls and even financial ruins for many families.

Two, the overall cost of living in Singapore will only become more expensive with the GST increase.

Three, many elders do not have as many children as siblings to take care of them in their old age and lastly, CPF withdrawal can predictably be pushed further back with stricter rules in the years ahead.

To those simple minded pap suckers who still insist that he wants to exercise at Changi Airport lalala….I would tell them loud and clear to ask their mothers to go to Changi Airport and exercise with him.

To my pap sucker friends and you know who you are, did you also tell your mother to go to Changi Airport terminal 3 and exercise with him? For your information, Changi Airport got aircon one leh, bery comfortable one hor. Some more free one.

The plight of that 88 years old airport cleaner must prick our nation’s conscience, wake up our people from their deep slumber, shoke our empathy to the core but above all, puts the pap government to great shame, both domestically and internationally.

Singapore under the lhl government is definitely a sinking ship and it is gathering pace. It has so successfully tear to shread the many achievements of past pap governments before our eyes. Just yesterday, it was the news about hiving off SPH media business into a not for profit entity.

Think.

    “Work is exercise” for old people according to one ex-Minister. It sounds almost like the Auschwitz’s slogan that greeted the Jews at the entrance to the concentration camp: “Work Sets You Free.” It is a shame that a country that has built so much in Reserves and Ministers make millions in salaries while in office to retire comfortably, would not provide adequately for the old and vulnerable so that they can find some respite from their labor before they leave this world.

  • Old Age Pension:

    It’s long overdue for Singaporeans to get free old age pension.

    Shameless and e**l of those elites that enjoy $20 million bonus from tax money, secret millions in salary from tax money, while denying $500 old age pension. KNN.

    After contributing to our country for 65 years, what do we get in return? Zero. Nothing.

  • I remember reading that India, was bragging about being the world’s largest manufacturer of Covid-19 vaccines. Then it is natural to assume that most of its populace are vaccinated.

    The million-dollar question I ask now is, why then it is currently the hardest-hit Covid1- country in the world, with such a high rate of the vaccinated populace?

    Anyone?

    It is really inhumane to allow old folks to work at 88 years ! I do not understand how the government can be so heartless to allow this to happen! Wake up please …Opposition MP ! Please voice up ! Its really painful to see and I cannot imagine my parents living in such inhumane society ! What’s going on in Singapore these days ! I should have taken my parents out of SG many years ago ! And I’m regretting my decision to give in to my parents and would be for the rest of my Life !
