The ’4G’ taskforce have shown themselves to be indecisive, weak in planning, and having poor operational execution skills

I refer to the article “Healthcare protocols will change as S’pore shifts to living with Covid-19: Ong Ye Kung” (Straits Times, 6 Aug 2021).

In this connection, during the General Elections last year, voters were asked to give the PAP a strong mandate to execute its plans to overcome the Covid-19 crisis. After a seeming conclusion to another roller coaster ride, what can we say about the performance of the PAP and the ’4G’ task force?

Shockingly, the actions of the ’4G’ taskforce may, arguably, imply that they themselves may not have full confidence in their long term plans. Recall that, back in Jun, the ministers announced their strategy to live with COVID-19 as an endemic with vaccination as a key pillar to support a new normal.

Barely a month later, it was revealed that their lapses in enforcing the KTVs led to ever-changing rules which are a cause of frustration for the public and F&B operators. In the span of a week, the dine-in size was cut from 8 to 5 to 2 before there was an entire reversion to a ‘no dine in’ rule.

One friend in the F&B business lamented to me that:

these clowns don’t understand our pain and keep changing the rules. Their lack of leadership is seen in half-past-six measures and failure to provide certainty to businesses!

With cases on the rise, there were so many complaints about lapses in the quarantine process that they had to issue a public apology “MOH apologises for delays, lapses in Covid-19 quarantine process” (Straits Times, 2 Aug 2021).

Should we be happy now that we are seemingly opening up?

What is shocking about the new rule is that work pass holders and dependents from higher-risk places can enter S’pore from 10 Aug onwards if they are fully vaccinated. Has the MOH considered that fake vaccine cards are widely available in some higher risk countries Furthermore, in the past, we have also seen the testing defence fail.

Moreover, why the seemingly puzzling thing is that people with Sinovac will now be included in the “fully vaccinated” pool of people, but it is still not offered as an option in the national vaccination programme?

The WHO has concluded that Sinovac is 100% effective in preventing serious illnesses and deaths? One of the reasons why the elderly age group has such a low vaccination rate is that they do not trust mRNA technology – would including Sinovac as a recognised vaccine then increase the rate?

To sum it up, it appears we have an indecisive ’4G’ taskforce who have shown themselves to be weak in planning and poor in operational execution.

And this also begets the question – why are the older Ministers so quiet, when they were the ones who asked for a strong mandate, consistently over the years?

    Great comments by Leong Kor.

    First of all, those Crap and INDECISIVE Holee Policies to DEAL and MISHANDLE oops Handle Covid19 by our World Class Ministerial Trash Force from Day One of Covid19 are BASED PRIMARILY on those POLICIES of CDC of USA, NOT WHO, period. When CDC FLIPPED and FLOPPED, our Trash Force follow suit!

    Anyway, the Trash Force of 3 STOOGES aren’t MEDICAL Experts but ONLY World Highest Obscene $Millions Ministers cum World Class Ministers! Their DAILY SPEWING of Covid19 data and the usual FLIPPING and FLOPPING measures to tackle Covid19 are aided by Dr Kenneth Off-The-Mark, the Indian Chief of the Expert Panel. Big Q is where the HELL does Dr Kenneth Off-The-Mark obtain and gather all his so-called EXPERTISE Data and Info before DISHING them to the 3 STOOGES? DOES ANYONE FROM HOLEE EXPERT PANEL Strenuously gather ALL THE RELEVANT AND IMPOTENT OOPS IMPORTANT DATA AND INFO FROM THE GROUND(KTVs, JFP, BUSES, MRT, FW Dormitories, and places of MASS CONCENTRATION OF HUMAN ACTIVITIES, etc)and IN HOSPITALS HOUSING THOSE INFECTED? Or they go the EASY and CONVENIENT WAY: FOLLOW THE MOTHER OF ALL EXPERTS ON PLANET EARTH, THE CDC OF USA!

    On a side note, why Mai Hum has this GREAT “URGE” to PUSH HARD for vaccination for the older folks! And also as Indian Chiefs of Tombmasek Holdings(Wifey Holee Jinx) and GIC(Mai Hum himself)who have INVESTED hundreds millions of taxpayers hard earned money in pharmaceutical company Pfizer and also a COMMITTED PRE-ORDER of millions doses of Holee Pfizer vaccines(only 6 months shelf life)using $billions of taxpayers hard earned money, WHY he has CHOSEN to DISCRIMINATE the use of Chinese vaccine, Sinovac(Only 200,000 doses available with 2 years shelf life)? The Husband and Wifey Tag Team and the Trash Force have BLOODS ON THEIR HANDS. HEAVEN AND THE BARN OWL ARE WATCHING THEM 24/7/365!

    I am an Singaporean working oversea in Australia, Melbourne. I do not want to talk about the whole of Australia. Here in Victoria (capital Melbourne) the population is about the same as Melbourne. The Premier of Victoria handles all covid related matters and on top his other responsibilities. There are NO THREE MONKEYS like in our MTF team. The Premier answers all or most of the questions about the handling of the covid pandemic. There is no passing a difficult question to the other member of the MTF like our THREE MONKEIES do from time to time.
    The Victorian Premier IS VERY DECISIVE not like our three monkeys in our MTF tam who have to WAIT FOR INSTRUCTIONS from the LEEder. The Victorian Primier only paid about $400 000 unlike our MTF monkeys who are paid millions and still CANNOT DO THEIR JOB.SHAME ON YOU FUCKING MTF.

    It is very sad that cotton sheep has continued to vote pap even though they know deep down in their sheep hearts pap is an utter fail the past many years since 2004.

    GE2024 is just 3 years down the line. Will cotton sheep wake up and vote into power a New Government?

    All the signs on the ground seem to say, yes, cotton sheep will vote for a new government in 3 years’ time.

    From past experience, we think it might be possible since the pain cotton sheep is feeling under pap regime is getting more intense. This is greatly helped by the dying off of many older die hard cotton sheep. Not a bad thing really for more pap mistakes.

    We, like everyone with a brain in pap island, wait patiently for a New Government to form and for many of current pap clan members to be investigated under a New CJ and indicted and put into changi prison.

  • NotMyProblem:

    I think we have given the PM and the task force a very long runway! Too long a runway!

    Two months ago, when we were about to be back to normal, where gathering was increased to 8 pax and more businesses were starting to open up everyone was anticipating the task force would take flight. Suddenly the whole plane crashed back down again, with more damages inflicted by CECA Delta force!

    Just to remind the task force, the runway is nearing the end now. If the task force still cannot take off, we will be running into the sea. There is no runway that is an endless runway in this world!

    Take a GOOD LOOK at N Zealand whose PM Jacinda Arden, a down to earth States Woman, looking after a bigger country than Stinkapore, tho a lot more sheeps WHICH DO NOT PRODUCE COTTON as per Minister of Edn Chan C S’s knowledge, and WHOSE SALARY is SO MUCH SMALLER than a small country Singapore BIG SALARY Ah Loong.

    When her staff approved Larry Page, Co-founder of Google request for NZ residence – she made a VERY VERY TELLING REMARK – she said she don’t know about med science, and she trusted her Staff of medical people approving Larry residence request after Larry had qualified through all the covid requirements.

    There is THE CLASSIC example of CAPABLE LEADERS leading the country – MAKING DECISIONS for covid are with MEDICAL EXPERTS, NOT SCREWED UP FAKE MEDICAL POLITICIANS of SG’s PAP Administration.

  • opposition dude:

    The recklessness in opening up to anyone who is supposedly fully vaccinated will most surely lead to even more clusters forming. We have already experienced a nightmare with the TTSH, airport, Bt Merah, KTV and Fishery/Hong Lim clusters so more will appear after 10 August.

    This just goes to show how badly planned things are amongst the PAP right now. Both the 3G and 4G are simply operating on theory DESPITE being shown time and again that their theory is absolutely bloody hopeless. And yet time and again we have read of horrible decisions made without any consultation whatsoever.

    All I can really say is this. If you are unvaccinated try not to go out unless you really have to. And if you are vaccinated I hope the symptoms will be mild for you if you should kena covid.

    We can look forward to planeloads of a certain south asian country flying in non stop after 10 August.

    In a word, REACTIVE.
    Hindsight is always 20/20.

    Lacks Wisdom.

    Scholarship is to regurjitate.
    Wisdom is a different thing.
    Knowledge is not wisdom.

    If you are told something, you Know something. This is Knowledge.
    Wisdom is more than knowledge.

    Lacking wisdom. Basing on Reactive

    Some more Covid virus doesn’t like to take buses & MRT trains they are waiting to come into SG by plane!

    I cannot fully agree with the Headline.
    The MTF reflects the LEEdership only.
    The 4G are not indecisive,they are mere monkeys following their Ma$ter.

    Scholarship is not the same as LEADERSHIP.
    Lets not be so presumptuous that scholars must also be good LEADERS.
    Ours have proven it not to be so,hasn’t it?

    Response: Well said. Totally agree with your GREAT and INSIGHTFUL COMMENT!

    Our World Class Ministerial Trash Force of 3 STOOGES ARE JUST THE MOUTHPIECE of the Husband(Mai Hum) and Wifey(Holee Jinx)Tag Team. DON’T THINK anything wrt to Covid19 from Day 1 that have been SPEWED from their Big CB Mouth are their OWN INITIATIVE and DECISION! Period. EVEN if they want to VOICE their OWN OPINION on how to handle Coivd19, their SPOUSE WILL NOT ALLOW as their HUSBAND/WIFE $millions Salary is at STAKE!

    The recent DECISION to REOPEN is also NOT THEIRS But FROM the Husband and Wifey Tag Team with Hidden Agenda! Like his Big Daddy once commented on the Tianamen Massacre: “if I have to shoot 200,000 students to save China from another 100 years of disorder, so be it” unquote!

    His DSon is now following and ADOPTING his Big Daddy GREAT WORDS OF WISDOM: Having achieved his TARGET of 70% population being VACCINATED TO REOPEN THE ECONOMY FOR INVESTORS AND VISITORS AND IMPORTANTLY TO RESUME HIS OPEN-LEG POLICY FOR FTs especially to FULFILL the CECA OBLIGATION, he is PREPARED to SHOOT oops SACRIFICE the 30% of UNVACCINATED folks to SAVE SinKapore from another 100 years of DISOBEDIENCE(30% of STUBBORN local folks who REFUSE to be VACCINATED for one REASON or ANOTHER).

    WE DON’T HAVE A HAPPY 56TH SG NATIONAL DAY BECAUSE OF MTF LAPSES IN MANAGING KTVs!

    Tech: It’s not entirely the KTVs (ground zero) that caused the spread.

    I am tempted to believe that the MTF was never created to look after the welfare of the dafts as a top priority but to ensure party survival at all cost.

    If you look at all the policies that they have been churning out, it’s been nothing but fanciful playig with words and half-baked, add in constant u-turns with total disregard for the survivor of the dafts.

    Dafts are losing their jobs and finding it hard to put food on the table, have they addressed any of these concerns? They don’t even care that the buses and mrts are packed, perfect environment for virus to infect, but instead more wayangs on the dunno what Safe Distancing officers to collect fines and more fines, and haress dafts who are already suffering.

    How then can anything beneficial to the dafts be expected to come from the constant bull of a shit of a MTF?

    Sinkieland is going to the dogs and I hope the C19 Delta would do their job (mass outbreak) and help the island reboot.

    That having said, I am actually quite looking forward to the NDP celebrations, where the Delta+ would be able to “do their thing”. lol

  • Realistically:

    >>Barely a month later,….<<

    Leong Sze Hian has probably forgotten that the MMTF withdrew the contents of their FIRST press conference on 27 January 2020 the very NEXT DAY when I had pointed out that the MMTD, and especially Ong Ye Kung, then the Education Minister had stated that the emperor without clothes regime had experience in handling the SARS crisis in 2003 and would have the experience in handling the impending COVID-19 pandemic since the C-19 virus was about 80% similar in characteristic with the H5N1 virus causing the 2003 SARS outbreak……….only to be told that China's President Xi Jinping HIMSELF had warned that the then unnamed virus was DIFFERENT AND MORE DANGEROUS than the H5N1 virus and that the PRC government had imposed a complete lock-down of Wuhan city which was the first place to be affected by the virus outbreak in China (and the world).

    Which was probably why the MMTF withdrew the contents of its first press conference on 27 January 2020. People might recall that I had called on Ong Ye Kong to resign or be sacked………………how prescient it would have been after the disasters of the past 18 months attributed to Ong Ye Kung's incompetence and arrogance.

    Pity that sinkies prefer the snake oil con of the wayang-party MPs and so-called self-serving oppos.
