Covid-19: Delta plus strain coming here?

The Indian (Delta) variant is thought to be perhaps two or three times more transmissible than the original Kung Flu. Whatever China can do, India can do better: except raising the living standards of the poor.

Now a Delta plus strain is circulating in parts of India. But scientists said there was no data suggesting that it posed any greater risk than the Delta variant.

Let’s hope so.

Better still, keep it out of S’pore. Remember the Indian FT who came here via Nepal said she felt safer in India? She said she contracted Covid-19 at Changi International Airport.

MoH disagreed with her.

  • NotMyProblem:

    “She said she contracted Covid-19 at Changi International Airport”, and Delhi Chief Minister also said “It’s a Singapore virus”.

    MOH disagreed, but no ball to POFMA them.

    Come to think about it. Travelers were supposed to submit a Covid negative test result before boarding the flight at departure, why the moment they landed in Changi, the result became positive?

    Strange??

    IF THE GOVT KNOWS THAT RE-OPENING OUR BORDERS WILL CAUSE WIDER N DEEPER SPREAD OF COVID ESPECIALLY DELTA VARIANT,WHY INSIST ON RE-OPENING BORDERS WHEN DELTA IS SPREADING FAST IN ASIA?
    WHY ALLOW THE VIRUS FROM NONE OTHER THAN THE *SOURCE OF ORIGIN* TO COME THROUGH AT ALL?!

    I SAY THESE DAFT MINISTERS CANNOT BE ANYMORE STUPID!!!
    EVEN *AIR-BUBBLE* partner,HONG KONG GOVT,CANCEL THE AIR BUBBLE ARRANGEMENT WITH SG AT ONCE UPON NOTING THE CHANGE IN OUR COVID MANAGEMENT STRATEGY?
    HEY,HK GOVT,NOT this simple NOBODY sg-uncle ?

  • PAP failed. AGAIN:

    Straits Times: Singapore explores all options with nurses in short supply

    The shortage is explained by basic economics. There is a shortage of nurses because the pay is too low. Wages are “determined” by the market when demand for nurses matches supply of nurses. If more nurses are needed , i.e., an increase in demand wages have to go up so the “supply” of nurses will also go up to meet the increased demand. It is that simple.

    The underlying problems is that PAP has always been using a low wages policy to grow the economy. So there is a shortage in ALL vocations (including nursing), trades and other types of work. It fixes the shortage by bringing in “cheap” (no CPF) foreign workers. (This further depresses local wages.) And for the construction industry not only cheap but also basically unskilled workers are brought in from South Asia. This also explains the poor productivity and poor work quality in the local construction. This in turn explains the poor quality of HDB flats and unreliable MRT. The norm of the local construction industry is SHODDY WORKMANSHIP.

    The PAP never invested in / developed trades like carpenters, masons, electricians, steel workers, plumbers, etc. Salaries remain low so Singaporeans do not want to be in the trades. Singapore is the only developed country where those in the trades cannot earn a decent living and have a good life because PAP believes in the oxymoron “cheap and good”.

    There is a saying in the construction industry in real 1st world countries. “Cheap work is not good and good work is not cheap.”

  • How much help from PAP:

    Straits Times: Help pours in for siblings with rare disorder in Singapore

    The sibling suffer from a rare illness so there will be very few of them ion Singapore. Singapore has over a TRILLION in reserves, perennial Budget surpluses and the highest (on the planet) paid politicians. The Government and millionaire PAP politicians should pay for the full care of the siblings.

  • Be careful:

    Be careful and monitor the situation closely.
    If not another serious wave coming.

    Better to relax restriction on the local economy and help local business for now than to open up to high risk countries..

    SINGAPORE – There were 26 new coronavirus cases confirmed as at noon on Tuesday (July 13), taking Singapore’s total to 62,744.

    They included 19 locally transmitted cases, of which eight belonged to an emerging KTV cluster.

    Of the local infections, five were linked to previous cases and quarantined, while 10 were linked and detected through surveillance.

    Four cases are currently unlinked.

    There were also seven imported cases who had been placed on stay-home notice on arrival in Singapore, said the Ministry of Health (MOH).

    Five of these cases were detected upon arrival, while two cases developed symptoms during stay-home notice or isolation.

    More details will be announced on Tuesday night.

    On Monday, MOH said there was a new cluster involving a group of Vietnamese social hostesses who had frequented KTV lounges or clubs now operating as food and beverage outlets.

    Special testing operations are under way at Supreme KTV (Far East Shopping Centre), Empress KTV (Tanglin Shopping Centre) and Club Dolce (Balestier Point).

    MOH added that it will extend free Covid-19 testing to members of the public who visited the three outlets, any similar lounges or clubs operating as F&B outlets, as well as those who interacted with the Vietnamese social hostesses in any setting between June 29 and July 12….”Unquote.

    Response : Just one or two days back ,the Straits Times highlight Singapore got zero virus case .Now today report 19 new local cases ! Got cover up data or not ? Can spike so fast meh ?
