Covid-19 virus don’t take trains and buses?

While all of us are required to observe social distancing in outdoor and indoor spaces, we are exempted from this rule when using buses and trains.

At hawkers’ centres and food courts, tables and chairs are bound up with ugly plastic nettings. Even the beach has nettings to prevent people from enjoying the breeze.

But seats in buses and trains are not marked “X”. And no one hesitates to occupy a seat next to another.

Journeys from east to central Singapore by train takes about an hour. If we sit next to a person who has COVID-19 for that length of time, infection is quite certain; unless they say, that person has been vaccinated twice.

When that infected person reaches home and falls sick with COVID-19, passengers in that carriage are likely to be traced and advised to stay at home. The little Trace Together token is that powerful.

We are never told of any person who is infected while travelling in a train or bus. My guess is that such a case would be classified as an “unlinked” case.

The authorities cannot say he was infected in a train or bus because these are always in motion and cannot be the source. Also, it may deter people from using public transport and that would mean a loss of revenue for SMRT.

And so we hear of COVID-19 clusters in KTVs, Fishery Port, schools, hospitals, and HDB blocks but never MRT trains or buses.

It cannot be that trains and buses are so super clean that viruses are afraid of them and avoid them altogether. Or is SMRT a privileged company?

  • Breaking News, almost all health agencies in the world are WRONG!

    CDC head Dr. Rochelle Walensky said the agency had seen data that found fully vaccinated people have the same viral load as unvaccinated people and that they too can infect others. [LINK]

    In plain English:

    1. The vaccinated are as likely to infect others as those unvaccinated, because the viral load is the same, vaccinated or not.

    2. By extension, vaccination can be said to provide no immunity from serious injuries or even death because the viral load (once infected) is the same as those unvaccinated.

    Can I say now that those who have already been vaccinated with the mRNA are so screwed? Reportedly the mRNA vaccine has side effects which may not show up immediately, can be months or years. What if its causes infertility or erectile dysfunction? Instead of living with the virus, its now living with a ticking time bomb.

    Will the so-called experts at MTF please respond.

    If you can breathe through the mask, it is possible that there are gaps for air to enter and escape. At a recent visit to the optometrist, she had to put a tape over the top edge of my mask to hold it down during the eye-exam for reading to prevent the exhalation from fogging my glasses! So, the mask is not full-proof. When you are standing or sitting so closely to the next person in the train or bus, I think there is still a low change of getting infected.

  • No wonder:

    Isn’t this already known for a long time? Vaccinated people can get infected and can infect others!

    Now then some official want to announce it. No wonder TKL keeps in saying mild, mild, mild.

    This is fairly recent update in the drive to get people to wear masks. Looks like it is going to be a long-drawn battle. First, the people are told they need to jabs to be fully protected; now they are saying, you may need a third. The pharmas and their investors will be laughing all the way to the bank. How many more jabs before we reach an altered state?
    Better stick with the masks until they can find a proven solution to end the pandemic.

  • @No wonder

    Actually, this is more official coming from the CDC and they have announced something new on the viral load, i.e. it is the same in all infected persons, vaccinated or not.

    In the past, although it is known those vaccinated can infect others, many believed that because they are vaccinated, any transmission from those who are vaccinated would be mild, but this changes that misconception.

    With the new info, common sense dictates that since both the infected, vaccinated or not, carry the same viral load, then the vaccines are practically useless in immunity or transmission, offer little protection from the virus. It may, to some extent build up the body’s immune system, but that does not mean the victim will not be seriously injured or killed.

    In a nutshell, it is back to the mask again and everything that the MTF has been saying about special privileges for vaccinated versus unvaccinated ones can safely be flushed down the toilet.

    What do you think?

    Pharmakingpins and their conspirical salesleaders are the ones who emerge victorious when the whole world is hopelessly engaged in this endless battle. Any wonder they became Trillionaires overnight?

    TRE Techie:
    What do you think?

    Dear Tech,
    Here is what I think.

    TRE Techie:
    With the new info, blah blah …

    You yourselves said it ….With the new info and this new info only comes recently …

    But at that time the decision was taken this new info is not available.

    So the decision taken at that time is correct..

    Example, at 5pm the sky was clear and weather forecast said it will not rain.

    So, at 5:01pm you took the decision to go for 2.4km slow jog based on the weather forecast information at 5pm and carry no umbrella.

    At 5:30pm, while on your way back home it started to rain and you were drenched.

    So, can I say you made the wrong decision then at 5:01pm?

  • Lalanglokangdesiva:

    Could the study be fundamentally flawed? It involved only a few hundred people in a small state of the United States of American. Probably, all those who were involved were vaccinated with Pfizer or Moderna vaccines. Vaccines produced by the same pharmaceutical company at different time could be the factor. Many medical scientific studies which were published in Lancet, a renewed medical publication, were later withdrawn due to fundamental flaws! Moreover, conflicting results in the field of scientific research is not uncommon.

  • Massive Total Failure:

    TSL:
    And so we hear of COVID-19 clusters in KTVs, Fishery Port, schools, hospitals, and HDB blocks but never MRT trains or buses.

    Here is the revelation re KTV operating as govt-approved bistro:

    With the inside knowledge, Amy shared how simple it was for a KTV lounge to continue operating as per normal.

    “They turned themselves into somewhat of a bistro. If you visit the KTV, it became compulsory to order two staple food from the menu but the operations were still the same, you just needed to order the food,” she said.

    This eventually led to a Covid-19 cluster that emerged in July.

    As a Vietnamese hostess was the first to test positive for the coronavirus, much of the blame was directed to fellow hostesses but Amy thinks it isn’t fair.

    “Everyone, including the hostesses and the customers, is responsible for the cluster. I still feel that this is something that can happen anywhere and not only at a KTV.”
