One million potential silent spreaders living and working among us?

Monday’s C19 infection numbers are out but in this commentary, I want to focus on Unlinked Community Cases (UCCs).

Cases which are part of known clusters and cases with known sources are quarantined and ringfenced. They are unfortunate but they are effectively under control and monitored. They are the lesser evils. UCCs on the other hand are our major worries, fears and killers.

Yesterday we had 18 UCCs and today another 11. Both days, the numbers are in double digits. There are 2 points that should worry all concerned citizens.

1) We know that highly transmissible mutated variants are spreading in our community; and
2) We now know that people who have received their 2 full doses can still be infected and in many such infected cases, they either experience or display little or no symptoms at all, unlike people who are not C19 vaccinated, nonetheless they are now carriers and capable of silently spreading the virus wherever they go. This makes them silent spreaders. That is akin to a beast on the loose.

To-date, we have more than1 million people in Singapore who have received their two C19 jabs. In other words, we have a potentially large pool of silent spreaders living and working among us.

I would like to appeal to the taskforce, our medical professionals and scientists to work together, work harder and with urgency at identifying such people who maybe infected very early on so that they can be separated from mingling in the wider community.

If we are unable to identify them and separate them from the larger community early and effectively, the prospects are indeed dim.

Meanwhile, each and everyone of us must continue to exercise utmost responsible behaviours because the battle is far from over and we are only as strong as our weakest link.

To my sucker friends and you know who you are, what do you all sucker think eh?

Think.

  • XOXO:

    Xenophobic name-calling aside,me thinks the govt should not have allowed Indian FTs’ relatives to come to Sg especially after B16172 indian variant was found.

    It is totally FOOLHARDY.
    What are the ministers thinking,if they truly think at all?!
    Group-Thinking is just merely a convenient way to cover up for BLINDLY FOLLOWING ORDERS,is it not?

    And,whose stupid orders are those?
    We shake heads.

    Now they must test all those who are fully vaccinated to be sure they are not infected silent carriers in the community! This is “Zombie II: The Mutants” LOL!

  • Is Simon suggesting that SInkieland should conduct a mass testing of the population?

    I dare say not going to happen because if they had wanted to go down that road, they would have done it during the 1st wave of the C19 pandemic.

    This is a gahment that die die won’t say sorry one, don’t expect any u-turn from them, maybe unless bo bian, a full-blown pandemic jialut jialut infect half the population.

    Also:

    2) We now know that people who have received their 2 full doses can still be infected and in many such infected cases, they either experience or display little or no symptoms at all, unlike people who are not C19 vaccinated, nonetheless they are now carriers and capable of silently spreading the virus wherever they go. This makes them silent spreaders. That is akin to a b**** on the loose.

    Is Simon saying this as a matter of fact or pure speculation? If the former, maybe will kenna POFMA one lor since it has not been proven.

    Openly we are jabbing with vaccines…
    Quietly we are managing community spreads…

    There is one thing certain, working towards herd immunity — with the least casualty possible, under a finite resource.

    Four type of person in this amazing era:
    1. Totally covid-free – getting lesser each day
    2. Covided (include re-covided) – More each day
    3. Vaccinated (include mutiple vaccinated) – More each day
    4. Both vaccinated and covided OR covided and then vaccinated OR vaccinated and then covided and then vaccinated and then covided and goes on and on… .

    This is none but other than pooled resources (public health care system) are collapsing under mass casualty scenario which domino on to other systems such as economic and financial system (and even defense system)

    Vaccination is a cheaper quickie option, isn’t it?
    Problem is fundamental, solution is polictical.

  • I gave up on Sg years ago:

    It’s so difficult for me, with good post grad qualification from local top university and good relevant experience, to find job in ICT sector where there are abundant jobs. It happened 2011 to 2017 when I tried so hard to change job.

    It is true in my sector they are singaporeans displaced (should I say discrimination) by FT hiring managers.

    The saddest part is we are importing too much Low caliber FTs and FWs. This will certainly have negative impact to industries and economy overall.

    Is government protecting singaporean and how? I have no clue as I don’t see concrete actions.

    I will seek any opportunity leave Singapore for good.

    They can’t be spreaders unless they have been infected. It depends on how widely and quickly the virus spreads into the community. What does the data collected so far show? Of the newly infected, what percentage have been fully infected?

  • work silently inside the body:

    one question no one seems to be asking hor ?? if vaccinated and still can get infected without symptoms hor ?? can virus stay in a vaccinated person and further work silently inside the body and mutate into much worse strains to destroy the efficacy the vaccines and pose even more serious threats ? any doctor here to advise ???

  • Reboot:

    Although LW insisted border with India is kept open with workers but the reality is kept open for immigration, those dependent and short terms are let in so that they can continue to grow the FT/to be converted to PRs and new citizens. Punggol Sengkang Simei East Coast Tanjong Rhu are full of Indians and the border is still open for them to be imported.

    And in the end, instead of scrutinisng these entries or tighten the border with India, they tighten locals.

    This is 61% voters decision to elect leaders who protect foreigners at the expense of Singaporeans.

    FTs from India ,together with their visiting relatives,are a potential HEALTH HAZARD to sgs in this LITTLE CONGESTEDCRED DOT where germs spread faster than other big cities.

    Everywhere i go,i see INDIAN FTs and their relatives,more so over last 12 months.

    We are all at higher covid risk than we can imagine.

    The DAFT GAHMEN,particularly OYK N HIS BO$$,are responsible.

    Food courts,super markets,offices and especially CONDOs where alot of sgs reside?!

    With the HUGE NUMBER OF FTs and their relatives residing here,it is time the NATIONAL STATISTICS account for this LARGE NUMBERS ,segregated from TRU BLU SG CITIZENS.
    UNLIKE OTHER COUNTRIES,FTs make up a SUBSTANTIAL PROPORTION IN OUR POPULATION.
    I dare hazard there are many more FTs and their relatives living here than even our EURASIAN-sgs in total?

    Such A HUGE NUMBER OF FTs/relatives living here is of grave significance statistically affecting our socio-economic structure.

    Pls STOP LUMPING NON-sgs into SGS’ STATISTICS as PRs are not citizens and witb such HUGE number ,FTs/relatives must be assigned due weightage as a grouping.

    Can the STATS DEPT experts honestly disagree?

    The “Mutants” have already broken through the gate and spreading. It is now managing and containing the spread. They are considering to vaccinate as many as possible with the first dose which hopefully will provide some level of “protection” against serious side effects. In that case, why not use the one-dose vaccine and forget about the second dose. Chinese vaccines which have been approved by WHO require only one dose.

    Delhi Chief Minister asked to suspend flights from SG, saying that a new variant has emerged here. Is this true or fake? SG should do the same to flights from India so that there will not be further cross-border transmissions of the disease. Those who wish to return to their respective countries should be given a dateline and then temporary suspend all passenger flights until the pandemic is brought under control.

    Paying them millions to find solutions is not the solution. Telling them to close the the bolder is not the solution because they think it’s not a problem. When community infection start shooting up they blame the citizens. They are the problem. Including the CB Simon. Writing rubbish here. So what you got the best tracing and testing method. So what you can swiftly linked the unlinked case. So what you got 90% vaccinated and achieved the herd immunity. Then it’s business as usually. Their CB bullshit calibrated import of foreign workers. Then we start at ground zero all over again. The circuit breaker will go on forever, start and stop, stop and start until the PAP addiction to foreign workers is cured one way or another. Most people want the middle way. But there is no middle way in a war. You cannot worry about the economy and businesses fighting a war. There will always be opportunities for the economy and businesses after the war.
