UK decided to treat the Covid-19 as endemic

Although cases have increased again in recent days, UK felt confident enough to ease the lockdown measures because death rate has reduced and remain low for pass couple of months.

This may be due to seasonal factors as the graph of daily deaths from Covid19 suggest. Death numbers may pick up in October when weather starts to turn colder. It may also due to high vaccination rate but we will only know which factor really counts when winter comes.

It is actually unusual for infection cases to rise during summer time right now as infection cases in May to Sept 2020 were subsiding to pretty low level, most probably due to hotter weather. This is especially so when UK has achieved high vaccination rate right now with lockdown measures in place!

They are blaming the known variants but that may not be the only main factor.

Death rate now stands at 2.4% but I would expect it to drop when there is a rise in infections while death numbers remain low.

It is a very bold move of Boris Johnson to ease lockdown rules while infection cases are rising again, though death numbers remain relatively low. I guess Britain is determined to turn this Covid19 into an endemic.

Most importantly, UK has commissioned a study of using Ivermectin for Covid19 treatment since June 2021. They are also exploring other readily available drugs for outpatient treatment as well.

It seems that UK government knows exactly what direction they are heading to and they have installed all the necessary plans to turn this Covid19 into endemic.

Even their easing rules make more sense than PAP’s Kuku rules.

In contrast, we have a bunch of overpaid headless chickens running around in SG trying to run the show in such a clueless manner.

    ONE BY ONE, THE POLITICAL COWS are cowering in shameful defeat of their mad/stupid vaccine advocacy now defeated by a mutated Delta variant evolving much more faster than the current available vaccine could catch up.

    Supermarket food shopping is no longer safe. Neither is prior full dosage of vaccination affording any infection protection.

  • For UK means:

    Social distancing

    1. No limits on how many people can meet
    2. 1m-plus guidance removed (except in some places like hospitals and passport control when entering)
    3. Face coverings no longer required by law, although the government still “expects and recommends” them in crowded and enclosed spaces
    4. Some shops and transport operators will still require masks

    Events and gatherings

    1. Nightclubs can reopen
    2. Pubs and restaurants no longer table-service only
    3. No limits on guests at weddings and funerals
    4. No limits on people attending concerts, theatres or sports events
    5. No restrictions on communal worship

    A bold step for life back to normal for UK, hope Sinkieland can follow (for better or probably for the worst).

    I think there is going to be an increase in cases. The virus is what it is and it will go on to infect people. Call it whatever you want – endemic or pandemic, the virus makes no distinction. The KTV lounge is a good example. When you are in close contact with a carrier and not wearing a mask, there is a good chance you will be infected and spread it to others. It is a calculated risk the govt is willing to take with the people. Good luck!

  • @Smart Nation

    With the latest variant being so transmissible, an increase in infections when the lockdown is lifted is anything but expected.

    What remains to be seen is whether the new infections would result in more serious cases and/or maybe even deaths. If the new cases are mostly mild, then it can be said that it is safe to remain “open” and treat the C19 virus like the common flu.

    Otherwise, if we see a re-enactment of last year’s Wuhan, then an abrupt and immediate U-turn is needed, it’s back to square one.

    This would also be a good time to test the effectiveness of the various vaccines.

    Regardless of the outcome, however, one thing is certain. Both the vaccine companies and medical services (hospitals) would all be laughing their way to the banks and even in their sleep.

  • Harder Truths:

    The insane response of the $G regime is not about CoVID per se, but creating an environment of fear to implement draconian security and tracking methods to keep everyone monitored. The reason for this is there is an economic tsunami coming from too many FT, too little jobs and too high a cost of living.

    In order to target the people who go against the policies of MIW the unneeded COVID tracing and shuttering people in homes is meant to diffuse the anger and resentment building up whenever $G locals meet and see with their own eyes how $G is changing before their very eyes.

    There will be many more of these de-facto criminal home incarceration as well as keeping us off the streets in the name of a health scare that in the majority does not exist now. CoVID is treatable. The social disintegration of $G society from these draconian security measures is not.

    The big problem is that $G sheep will very soon accept this way of ‘life’ as the new normal. So be prepared for this way of life while other countries go back to normal and treat the CoVID response responsibly.

    People will not speculate if more relevant information is released to the public asap.

    It should be noted that to date, the cause of death of the ACS student who died at SAFRA Yishun last February is not made public. Why? The police said it did not suspect foul play. Was the death caused by negligence of SAFRA Yishun staff?

    People will not speculate if full details are promptly made public. It is that simple – a “no-brainer” if you have a brain.

    Strait Times: Ceca is not a four-letter word – Grace Ho, Senior Political Correspondent

    Absolutely true. CECA is not a four letter word. To most Singaporeans it is a “7-letter word” because for them CECA often results in a Singaporean becoming JOBLESS. He/she loses his job to an Indian national who can work here under CECA.

    Many Singaporeans now refer to Changi Business Park as “Chennai Business Park”. The place is “overrun” by Indian nationals because of CECA. PAP “spin” cannot change reality because Singaporeans can see what is happening.

    Too many gaps – Airport, KTV, Fishery Port. Next could be restaurants, coffee shops, and schools. Always playing catch-up with the virus. Perhaps the MTF should seriously consider implementing a total lockdown for a month. Start all over again – test everyone inside the country; quarantine and treat the infected, keep the mask mandatory and suspend all dine-ins. Now even the vaccinated can carry the virus and spread it to others inside the home. The Delta and Delta+ will spread faster than they can manage if they implement half-measures.

    One can be fully vaccinated and still be infected. Five fully-vaccinated people (family members or friends) gather together for a meal; one is infected and spread it to the other 4, who then spread it to others in a chain action. So, the rule of 5 in a group may actually aid instead of prevent the virus from spreading. Whether it is 3,5,10, 20 or 50, the size does not really matter as long as every person do a self-test to be sure they are not infected before coming together with others. Like that, distributors of ART sure to make money! KTV can also resume business, gym can open, restaurant can have dine-ins, social activities without mask can resume.

  • PAP FAILED BIG TIME:

    Straits Times: 10 more markets and food centres, 2 KTV clubs linked to Covid-19 cases: MOH

    “Currently 28 active clusters of infection, ranging between three and 193 infections”

    “Number of unlinked cases increased from 8 to 45 in one week.”

    “New cases in the community increased from 19 to 480 in one week.” WTF!

    The above numbers says it all. Shit really hit the fan big-time. It is getting worse fast. Singapore is headed for full lockdown again. Unlike the outbreak at foreign workers’ dorms last year this one is almost impossible to contain because it has spread throughout the community and all the markets cannot be closed down to stop it.

    The government will most likely need to spend billions again to support the economy. It is time to start sending foreigners home so Singaporeans can take over their job.

  • @PAP FAILED BIG TIME

    Even if the local cases hit 1000 or 10k a day, a full lockdown is not possible. Reason being that the LEEders were never prepared nor had planned for such a scenario. It was never on the drawing board to begin with. If they had wanted to initiate a complete lockdown, they would have initiated one from the onset, not come up with some crap of a “circuit breaker” that is completely ineffective, not forgetting the childish and equally ineffective joke of a SHN.

    For a full lockdown to be effective, the logistical support from the ground up must be in place and can be activated at the push of a button, it has to work like clockwork like those in China, unfortunately, Sinkieland is not prepared.

    For a start, during a full lockdown, there must be those who are willing to risk their health, to volunteer to coordinate, help deliver food and medication like the social community centres in China. There must be plenty of willing volunteers. In China, all these fall in place whenever the authorities need them because the Chinese are more united in the face of a pandemic.

    Not the case for Sinkieland, I am afraid. You think the LEEders would have enough volunteers from the community centres to distribute food and medicine during a full lockdown? You think those who benefitted gravely from the CC will volunteer to put themselves in front to help out? I am not afraid to say, Sinkies are generally selfish and self-serving. Nothing good in return they won’t do, it’s their nature.

    In the end maybe there will be a full lockdown if the pandemic reaches the scale of Wuhan, but the only lockdown you see will be the LEEders locking themselves at home while the disposables like NS boys and civil servants down low low the food chain kenna arrowed to cheong via barking through telephones.

    In a nutshell, even if cases hit 10,000 a day, there won’t be a complete lockdown in Sinkieland, because logistically it is impossible. Giasi Giasu from the top to the bottom, how to successfully organise one? Besides a full lockdown translates to a lot of CA$$$$$$$H, you think these LEEders are as generous as those in China? Throw a few million dollars to do mass testing they are already reluctant to do so.

    At the most worst case, they may throw some semblance of a circuit breaker with heightened alert wayangs where people would still be free to roam around and mingle with the virus.

    Someone please tell me I am wrong?

    When I said “full lockdown” I meant what was done before in Singapore – work from home, online learning, closure of non essential retail, no dining in, no public gathering, no tuition classes, social distancing strictly and consistently enforced.

    The economy will be hit hard again. To lessen the adverse impact on Singaporeans the government should start sending home foreigners so Singaporeans can take their place. Reserves do not have to be spent on Singaporeans who still have jobs. Millions of taxpayers’ money should not be WASTED supporting foreigners working in Singapore. Government should not worry about sending home foreigners. There will ALWAYS be foreigners from the region are willing to work in Singapore.

    BTW, I see the “3 stooges” (Lawrence Wong, Ong Ye Kung, and Gan Kim Yong)
    being used as “scapegoats” and thrown under the bus by PAP to placate angry Singaporeans. The 3 stooges got “fixed” so CCS can be the next PM as planned.
