Unhelpful to use the term ‘unlinked’

Many people are worried about the large number of “unlinked” cases. But they worry for the wrong reason.

It does not really matter if the case is “linked” or “unlinked”.

These unlinked cases are more serious, because they are identified when they appear at the clinic with some symptoms of covid sickness.

In contrast, the “linked” cases are detected through quarantine or isolation, The linked cases are more likely to be mild, i.e. asymptomatic.

I find the classification between “linked” and “unlinked” to be not helpful. It could be possibly misleading.

This classification gave too much importance to safe entry and contact tracing.

It distracts from the more important distinction between mild (i.e. asymptomatic) and severe (symptomatic).

    Soon, we will pass the stage of counting. What does it matter? Linked or unlinked. Mild or serious. Vaccinated or unvaccinated. Just watch the downfall of the PAP and together with it the destruction of Singapore and its people.

    well said, bro. exactly what we are thinking.

    take any cotton sheep. if cotton sheep does not mingle with anyone, where got chance for virus? zero chance for virus.

    in pap Singapore, everywhere one goes, whether to karaoke for ladies or geylang for ladies, must token and then are traceable.

    the only place untraceable is bus interchange, and we say with 100% certainty, mrt stations.

    Tech: Like I have said many times, those so-called experts at the MTF are paid to hoodwink and deny, that’s their ONLY job description. Get a team from China and look at the current situation in Sinkieland and I have no doubt they will point to the public transport.

    agree bro, with one exception. the downfall is pap and its cronies and its 61% cotton sheep.

    we don’t belong to any of the above. we actually don’t have to live in pap island. but we stick around because we want to be part of the effort to vote out pap.

  • opposition dude:

    Unlinked could also be those who were on public transport. As we all are aware, NO ONE does safeentry on buses and trains. If someone who is carrying the virus is on public transport then all who are within range of the person’s droplets are potential victims and carriers.

    Linked or unlinked it does not matter because PAP are having a tough time being endemic BFFs with the virus. We are now considered having our third wave with daily cases above 100 for how many days liao? We had a 2 month lockdown last year and the KTV/fishery clusters just 2 short months ago and now these bus interchange clusters. We can look forward to PAP taking their own sweet time for this since 80% are fully jabbed and this has been declared endemic. They already said they will try their best not to return to yet another heightened alert so let’s see how long they can hold out.

    Tech: Err… you forgot “fomites”? The C19 can spread via surfaces, railings, seats, etc. It is not difficult to guess that the interchange clusters came from NDP, where dafts from everywhere around the island travel (via buses and mrts) to watch and the PAPies are trying very hard to avoid admitting it and blaming it on everything else. Even a 3-year-old can see that and Sinkies are so daft not to?

    What they are doing is to classify these cases under unlinked, so need not look bad. Ask any small-fly doctors in China if the Covid-19 don’t take buses or trains and they will ROTFL.

    MOH HAS THESE WARNINGS on social distancing even in the workplace – tighter restrictions awaits those who failed to keep up.

    COVID: Social gatherings at workplaces not allowed from Wednesday – MOH

    https://sg.yahoo.com/news/covid-social-gatherings-workplaces-not-allowed-wednesday-moh-123743273.html

    why?

    Transmissions of unlinked cases have escalated.

    And we got PERVERSE MINDS in this thread advocating the opposite.
