A new approach to live with Covid-19

My friend said that the ministers should improve their communication on why they wish to adopt a new approach towards dealing with the pandemic. He said that the ministers did not explain the change clearly to the people.

I disagree with my friend.

I have seen many news reports from the ministers explaining the matter. They have also given many interviews that are recorded on video (which I did not watch). I am satisfied that the ministers had put in adequate efforts to communicate and explain their decision.

The problem is that some people think that they are smarter than the ministers and scientists and felt that they know better than the people in charge.

If they do not spend the time to read and hear what the ministers had said, they should not judge that the ministers are not communicating well.

They should not make judgment out of ignorance or inadequate information.

I disagree with the ministers on several specific issues on how they handle the pandemic. I think that they have been over cautious and have caused a lot of economic harm. I also think that several of their actions are wasteful and ineffective.

However, on the latest strategy of “living with covid”, I agree with the approach. I also find that the ministers had communicated adequately on this approach.

  • There has been report that mRNA vaccine may cause infertility in women.

    Hypothetically speaking, assuming that whatever reported comes true and with 3.6 million Sinkies already vaccinated, then Sinkieland would be staring at extinction in the face, no?

  • Dr. Chan:

    Many of the ER physician colleagues I work with use hydoxychloroquine and ivermectin to manage CCP virus patients to good recovery.
    These anti-malarial medication basically alters the chemistry of the protein spike of CCP virus so that they don’t readily attached the human ACE2 receptors.
    These medications are very cheap and has been around for many years with little adverse effects.

    However, the hospital corporate bosses, media and big pharmaceutical are suppressing the prescribing of the use of these medication and promoting the experimental vaccines. WHY?

    Reason: Government, Big Pharmaceutical want to make money from taxpayers’ dollars?
    Or are they trying actively to thin down the herd (population)?
    E.g. China has an aging population problem. (So administer vaccine to them first and let them die first so as not to have to pay them retirement benefits?)
    PAP also trying to thin down aged population through vaccine so that they don’t have to pay out CPF? Just my personal opinion (don’t POFMA me)

  • A big salute to them:

    Now that we are prepared, now that we have known more about the virus and thus we are ready to live with the virus!

    This is what a smart and effective government should do, will do and have been doing.

    Just look around, homo sapient has been living with many things for so long…..tb, hiv, all kinds of flu, cholera, Ebola, and now, the Covid-19……couldn’t get rid of them and will have to accept the fact that they will be there. The right thing to do is to get ready…test out the situation, prepare the people by giving them vaccination, ensure that the capability to deal with people who would still get taken down by the virus even with vaccination. When all these have been done, yes,life will have to get back to normal.

    The 4G has done well, a big salute to them.

    Ah Tan aka Gold Chain, You also think you are smarter than the Minister, always commenting on their screw up actions and telling others you will not do like this , like that! Ask those readers will tell you the truth. At Bras Basah office last time, some of your managers are really good and smarter than you. But you still run down them to ground !

  • More Questions:

    Countries in the region are tightening restriction because of the surge in Delta variant but SG is loosening restrictions. Even fully vaccinated people can be infected and spread the virus. Is this a smart move? Will this not put the old and vulnerable at risk if a member of the family is infected with the virus? What if a new and more virulent variant emerge from SG?
