Handling of the Covid-19 pandemic

COVID-19 Cases in Singapore by Planning Areas (Source: Wikipedia)

C19 has been with us for over 1.5 years alearly and there are clear signs that it is gaining strength, intensity and devastation in that it has mutated and ravaging many countries in waves.

Looking back, I will list some of where the pap ministars and its task force have fallen short and in some cases, done some grand stupid things, totally unfitting and undeserving of the political salaries that they know how to pay themselves so well.

1) In early C19 days, Lee Hsien Loong very foolishly advised Singaporeans and the mainstream media parroted his call daily not to wear mask if they are not sick.

Over the last 1.5 years, we have gone from no need to wear mask if you are not sick to failure to wear mask will attract a first time fine of $300/ to even double masking for some people today. Just see for yourself how big the U-turn has been.

To lhl, I will say this to him. If you don’t know something, just keep quiet because it is ok not to know everything. You are a somebody and not a nobody in Singapore and there are too many unthinking suckerporeans who will blindly believe everything, hook, line and sinker that you told them. Your wrong advice could potentially have fatal consequences for so many people who believed you.

Btw, after >1.5 years, I have yet to hear or read about lhl apologising to Singaporeans for the ill-advice that he had dished out. I wonder If anyone ever came across his apology and if no, I ask if that is too much to expect?

2) We now know for sure that it was so wrong for the pap government to press on with the 2020 Chingay procession and those pap women ministers and MPs who gathered in large numbers to celebrate the International Women’s Day 2020. To make matters worst, C19 vaccination wasn’t even heard of then.

3) Very loud and vociferous calls, screams even were made by so many concerned citizens urging the government to ban Short Term Visit Pass and Dependent Pass holders from South Asia and India in particular from entering Singapore when C19 was ravaging India but those calls were largely ignored.

To add insult to injury, a new Familial Lane was introduced and among others, it facilitated boy and girl friends entry into Singapore. The karaoka index Vietnamese bu came in through that. The rest is history.

I strongly urge the largely book-smart only pap ministars to dig much deeper into it and see if it was a real boyfriend or a pimp or even a paid fella playing a make believe game with our ICA etc and if ICA is totally ‘innocent’ too.

4) I ask if Safe Entry and Trace Together are really useful tools when we need them most or are they more for show gadgets. Were they able to trace and identify the many, many different people who stepped into those shopping centres where many karaokas were located?

5) I ask why were those Safe Distance Ambassadors so visible at hawker centres, shopping centres and market places etc but none checking at karaokas lounges? Many of them were so young and looked so immature to me. Are they aware or not aware about what were going on behind closed doors?

I ask if they were properly trained, properly briefed before they were sent out or were they more for show and to create temporary employment opportunities for our soaring unemployed Singaporeans? Our millionaire pap ministars obviously fail to understand enough that the largely obedient masses will obey and co-operate with the authorities anyway and the naughty ones will find a way around the rules.

6) And this is one of the stupidest one. Being book-smart only is not enough to govern Singapore effectively. Entertainment and night life licences must come under the police because only the police has the ‘appropriate authority’, the standing, the image, the manpower and the experience to keep hanky panky businesses under control.

To pivot karaoka businesses to F&B businesses operating under F&B licence is akin to changing from a German Shepherd to a toy poodle to guard the bank. I, as a citizen clap loudly for you, the 4G pap government.

7) ….

Think.

  • Me say many times, this C19 is a god-sent which may eventually allow Sinkieland to reboot itself. If the current LEEders can take Sinkieland out of the current pandemic, then it shows that they are worth the millions paid and another decade in Parliament. If not, the C19 may just kick them out come next GE, if they survive that long.

    The C19 is not biased against any party and not afraid of being sued till pants drop. So I say let the C19 cast the votes for the future of Sinkieland.

    What do you think?

Now the MFT under the instructions of their BOSSES(Mai Hum and wifey Holee Jinx) have suddenly released and SHOWN them(KTVs, Jurong Fishing Port, etc. Some more THINGY CRAWLING OUT SOON)to the PUBLIC! Apparently, another POLY to FORCE and PUT “FEAR” to those who to date haven’t taken the Holee Jab yet to go for it.

    Understand lots of folks, especially the elderly don’t mind the LOONG QUEUE and paying for the Sinovac jab. Maybe the queue for Pfizer and Moderna jabs are SHORTER than the QUEUE for Sinovac! Anyway, the Pfizer Holee jab has only 6 months shelf life and the supplies which cost taxpayers $billions hard earned money, are arriving in batches fast and furious, leading Mai Hum and wifey Holee Jinx sweaty under their armpit!

    The UK has a population of nearly 70 million. Life over there is slowly going back to normal. Football crowds are being allowed back in the stadiums. Everything is looking up.

    Meanwhile over here in our little dot with the richest and most obscenely overpaid Ministers, things are spiralling downhill. Our population is only about a mere 6 million. Yet, our big brained Ministers are incapable of coming out with a cohesive plan to combat Covid. The virus with its miniscule, micro nano brain is running rings around the Multi Task Force going “na na na na na … catch me if you can.”

    Seriously folks, when are you going to realise we have ‘shit for brains’ Ministers running this country. Bet you, they are still planning for their grand Aug 9th parade. Perhaps they managed to convince the virus to call a truce for one day.

  • MOH (reportedly) said:

    “it is likely that infection cases will rise sharply at the current rate of transmission, and many people in the community will catch the virus.”

    Plainly put: Be prepared to be infected or more will be infected, there is little we can do about it? If the cases rise sharply, we already told you so, it has nothing to do with our incompetance.

    “While close to 50% of the population have completed their vaccination regimen, there remains a number of vulnerable individuals, such as seniors, who have yet to take up vaccination. Unvaccinated individuals are at higher risk of being infected, and higher risk of being seriously ill if infected.”

    So better get vaccinated or else…

    Measures will take effect 22nd July, so meantime virus should grab the opportunity to bite as many as possible? Then simi lansai PET 50 persons, 100 persons rubbish.

    AND the best joke of the day is” NDP will go on” and thousands will be allowed to mingle and roam around freely during rehearsals and the actual event, no safety distancing possible.

    Idiots!

    In the beginning of the epidemic you were SO CONFIDENT saying that you had beaten SARS and learned valuable lessons from it.Now you don’t sound so confident.If you are no expert in these areas keep your Chee Bye mouth shut.Singaporeans are starting to realise that your are A FOOL and an expensive one at that .

    It is being to show that you and your ministers CANNOT SOLVE this issue, the virus is TEN STEPS ahead of you.You half hearted and incompetence is showing. You and your miners still get your millions even if you do a HALF FUCK JOB.

    I believe in Sinkieland, bars and karaoke outlets besides licensed by the Police, are also licensed by SFA for the simple reason that they sell & serve drinks, liquors (wines, beers, beer, etc) and finger foods. I think anything pertaining to singing and entertainments are under the Police control whereas food hygiene and smoking issues are under SFA inspectors. So accordingly, both these 2 govt authorities are supposed to conduct inspections to see any violations of their individual regulations.

    Back to Phase 2 Heightened Alert. They decided they don’t want to live with Covid-19 virus? Covid-19 wants to kill and people want to live – they don’t integrate very well. LOL! Why is the MTF co-chaired by the Minister of Finance and Minister of Trade and Industry, instead of the Minister of Health? In other countries, like the U.S.A., Australia, U.K., New Zealand, Germany, etc., we often see the President or PM regularly at the fore-front during a crisis or natural disaster to give strength and lift up the spirit of the people.

    Don’t forget the pandemic spread from Singapore, and not from China, to the rest of the world. Stupid LHL govt only stopped flight from Wuhan long after the CNY holiday had started. Period before CNY, rumours were already circulating in China that the Chinese govt then was about to start lockdown. So when the long CNY holiday began, not infected as well as infected Wuhanese took advantage of this opportunity to escape the lockdown. Most jostled for Singapore. Plane loads of diseased Wuhanese infected flights, airports, transits, hotels. Shamefully, Singapore was the epicentre of this contagious global spread. The Western nations see LHL a poodle – too good a chummy to aim their guns and since then the world forgets about this shameful Singapore incident.

  • NDP wise, all it takes is for one or two asymptomatic Delta or Plus carrier in a marching contingent to infect the rest.

    1 to 2 to 4 to 8 to 16, how to count?

    Looking forward to another HUGE cluster after NDP 2021.

    Those with brains better don’t go see, else kenna waste money and have to be hospitalised. Confirm liao C19 cannot be fully cured one, the injuries caused will stay with the infected for life! Also, vaccinated ones not superman, not immune hor, better guai guai stay at home watch porn and make babies. More shiok and can contribute to the TFR.

    This latest wave is so upsetting & big setback.

    However, it’s more so for PAP ministers.

    Just when the bonus checks are laid out & ready to be awarded for the wonderful performance of the PAP ministers, of course they’re angry & upset.

    But for Singaporeans, almost everything comes to a halt once again.

    Some PAP clowns told all not to blame anyone for this mess.
    Yah right, we’d been moving on after each major mistake by PAP that history keeps repeating itself.

    PAP just can’t do a proper job in this situation & just being stubborn in other issues that hurt Singaporeans.

    This country is in serious danger if this is the actual group of people that will rule our land now & in the next 20 years.

    I am sure the extra-ordinary bonus cheques were all printed out stacked nicely on the PM’s table just waiting for his signature when….. some sex-starved ah peks of a peasant have to go KTV raba raba with a Viet babe.

    But then, not to worry. The cheques will be kept in the drawers until when the fat lady finally sings, when the market clusters start dying out.

    When it comes to paying themselves bonuses and boasting, the LEEders never forget.

    So i was with a companion at Encik Tan at Bedok Mall, done the tracing thing and taken temperature, and seated at the table with the “food-is-ready” electronic token waiting for it to blink….so i took off my mask to relax my facial muscles since the food will be ready in 5 minutes.

    And what do you know next? Two red-shirted vigilantes zoomed in immediately towards me insisting: “Please put on your mask until food arrives at your table!”

    “But my food is almost about here and what is the logic behind this red alert stance? You can see we two are seated down and distanced from other tables isnt it?”

    “Sorry, but thats the order from upstairs…”

    “Well…can you explain that order in the context of my current situation please?”

    …..and they left abruptly as the token lighted up blink blink. I’d like to know if they instructed the karaoke patrons to keep their masks on until the girls arrived at their tables with the beers? Huh?
