Why are the new infections spiking in Singapore?

My friend asked me – why are the new infections spiking in Singapore? We already have a high vaccination rate, above 80%, which is among the highest in the world. Why is SG faring so badly?

The answer is quite simple.

We are counting new cases differently from other countries.

Here are the figures for the cases and deaths during the past 7 days, as shown in the Worldometer website.

All countries – 3,207,000 cases, 52,000 deaths, rate 1.6%
Singapore – 11,876 cases, 20 deaths, 0.16%

Our death rate, calculated on deaths over cases, is 0.16%. This is one tenth of the global average of 1.6%.

This means that Singapore is reporting 10 times the number of infections, compared to the practice in other countries. In this instance, I am taking the total for all countries. The practice may differ from one country to another.

In most other countries, a case is recorded when a person is unwell and sees the doctor. If he is diagnosed to be infected with covid, a case is recorded.

There are many people in other countries that are infected with covid, but they are not sick. After a few days, the covid disappears. These cases are not recorded.

Singapore adopts a different practice. We test all front line workers once a week. This will catch many cases which are mild. They are recorded as an infection and placed under isolation.

Another source of cases is the contact tracing through safe entry recording and trace together recording. These are two separate sets of contact tracing data. Many people do not realize the difference between these two data sets.

These two sets of data are used to identify people who might be exposed to infected people and to send out health alerts and health warnings to the potentially exposed persons.

I do not know how many health alerts or health warnings are sent out each day. My guess is that it could amount to several thousands or a few tens of thousands.

The alerted people are required to be tested for the virus using the self test kits or the tests administered at the testing centers.

When several tens of thousand tests are carried out daily, it is likely to capture a large number of infected people. Most of these cases are mild.

We now have 2,000 cases a day. This number used to be less than 100 a day but has spiked many times in recent days.

The Ministry of Health said that 98% are mild and only 2% are serious, i.e .need oxygen supplement or ICU care.

My guess is that 90% of these cases are captured through front line testing and contact tracing and only 10% (i.e. 200 cases) are people who are unwell, and are tested covid positive by the doctor.

If our new cases are reduced by 90%, we will get the same death to cases ratio as the global average.

Why did we face this issue now, rather than during the previous 18 months? We seem to be doing very well, compared to other countries prior to the recent spike which occurred in August 2021.

The answer is probably – the delta variant.

The earlier variants were more lethal and less transmissible. The strategy of contact tracing using safe entry data was probably useful to a limited extent.

When the delta variant became quite widespread, and more people are infected in a mild form, the contact tracing throws out many times more cases to be tracked. I do not know the exact number, as it is not disclosed by the Ministry.

As the delta variant is more transmissible and more widespread, it makes sense for us to stop the contact tracing using the safe entry data, as it is quite useless now.

Conclusion.

It is time to stop the regular testing of front line workers and the contact tracing.

We should focus only on people who are unwell and have symptoms. We will reduce the cases by 90% as most of these cases are mild.

It is possible that some of the mild cases may be spread to the vulnerable people and increase the deaths. However, I expect that this increase will be small, and that better treatment protocols can help to keep the deaths in check.

    THE CONTENT READ of this article displays the intelligence not much higher of a priest chanting prayers and farting gas AT THE SAME TIME.

    “Other countries” (in the language of the article writer) without contact tracing technology/use AND the dispersion of huge remote geography would – by this article read assertion/logic – must BE GROSSLY UNDER-REPORTING INFECTING CASES, rendering the mortality ratio calculation/comparison meaningless.

    PAPpypolitics have already owned up the rate of escalation of infection caught them by surprise – WITHOUT ANY REFERENCE TO ANY CHANGE OF CASE DETECTION (pretended of in this fantasy fairy-tale doctoral thesis) since 18 months ago.

    If a sitting judge was to ask the witness (aka spider), how did you weave this beautiful cobweb of deceit, the answer that must come back must be – I DON’T KNOW!

    TKL, you are part of the reason why the new infections are spiking in Singapore. Bcoz of heartless and greedy people like you and the papies who want to re-open the economy and open up the borders at all costs, more people are dying of covid which is actually preventable.

    The MTF only know how to tell us to be prepared for more infections and more death and then just sit and wait and watch the cases shoot. Ever since the lifting of covid restrictions, cases went up exponentially, no?

    TKL, you got think or not? If don’t test, could there be even more death? Especially amongst the younger age group who have underlying illnesses? Imagine, a person was infected but wasn’t tested and shows no symptom went back home. He/she would infect the whole family and If his/her family has someone with chronic disease, that person could die regardless of vaccinated or not!

    Luckily TKL is not part of the MTF. Always using “I guess, my guess and I expect”. Walao! How many more people would TKL have wiped out from our population if he’s in the govt.

    My friend ask me are you happy with the increase in Covid 19 infection.
    I say Hurray. Don’t worry. I am happy. The infection is mild and death are not alarming. There are people like TKL who assured us their competency and so confident in their approach. That everything are well taken care. Don’t Worry Be Happy.
    Another friend ask me why you feeling sad. I told him. I am fully vaccinated and waiting for borders to open. But the border was locked. The travel bubble burst, now getting out of the house seems like a nightmare. I am worried not myself because I am old. But I am worried about my grandchildren. When I took my full vaccination. I am very confident additional to wearing a face masks and taking care of hygiene. Now, I look around the working place. Alamak, the two workers tested positive. It’s ok. Don’t affect me. Now my friend old mother tested positive. Do we need to let the children stay at home again. Boring isn’t it. For almost 2 years. Children are innocent, takes time for them to understand. The children will only know as this epidemic will go down in their History books. Aren’t there any latest test kit of detecting Delta? Oops.pharmaceutical shelves are empty. Told to purchase through internet at higher price. Back to where we started! Recall CCS on face masks costing $50 a box now $3 a box. That was last year.

    I am very disappointed that TKL should not use continent by continent to get the percentage on point of putting message across! That the infection is MILD. TKL why don’t you take the World population and death fatalities. To calculate. Singapore percentages will then be peanuts compared to just a coconut.
    TKL you have all the answers. No need feedback. Everything is well taken care off. When I ask you for solution you gave me out of context answer. Simple term you are out of point!
    . Don’t Worry Be Happy.
    Even I could give you the solution. You don’t even look or listen. So let us live by it and carry on our abnormal life..
    As I say. Wait till the Covid 19 ( pardon me I am not cursing ) strike any of your love ones you know or someone next to you. Whether what percentage involved it doesn’t matter to the affected person or you anymore. Please don’t point fingers or curse and swear. . …,,
    I could only send my deepest condolences to say.: why you so “Suay” of all the million people, why you can catch this Covid 19. You so lucky meh! 1 : 5,000,000. Compare to our 5 million plus population.

    IF THE SPIKE OF INFECTED CASE are due solely to the (fictitiously claimed/unsubstantiated) change detection algorithm (testing of frontline workers, contact tracing etc etc) to UNCOVER otherwise hidden/obscured mild/asymptomatic cases instead of serious infections saturation – as this article read asserts/implies – WHY THE FARK is there need for “booster” jabs of the over 60s and now younger ones as well going forward?

    Is the writer trying to convey the message that PAPpypolitics (and global political cows as well) are all barking at the wrong tree right from the beginning of FAILING OF INFECTED CASE DETECTION?

    That is failure of crisis management of “spraying insecticides” via saturated mass inoculation at all problems regardless of the consequences to come of unknown risks looming and this is to be achieved via persuasion of fake promises of herd immunity thereafter or by coercion and fear indoctrination if persuasion fails??

    “Spraying insecticide on the covid-19 pandemic disregards whether the problem (pandemic) is a maggot feeding on dead/dying corpses or an ant or an elephant or a venomous cobra sn*ke (Covid variant delta) – each has different outcome.

    Thee variant might mutate again and bite the host to mortality ending IF STUPIDITY CONTINUE TO PRETEND CHANGING THE DETECTION ALGORITHM to obscured the real danger lurking and fermenting OF WHAT COULD BE ISLAND-WIDE SATURATION OF INFECTION ALREADY.

  • opposition dude:

    Sorry uncle Tan you are wrong again as usual. You have conveniently forgotten that Delta is now the predominant strain WORLDWIDE, not just in some regions. So since you have also mentioned that this variant is far more transmissible whether one is vaccinated or not then this explains why the number of cases have shot up.

    As long as this bugger is still spreading we can look forward to more cases being reported daily because there are still loads of people out in public, it’s as simple as that.

    Right now the government is fumbling because they do not want to impose a lockdown after how much they suffered economically from last year. So all they can do is reduce the numbers allowed to dine out. The next step will be back to no dining in but no idea when this will be announced since the government likes to take its own sweet time anyway.

    Stay safe at home you all!

  • Singapore education is a joke:

    Straits Times: ‘Speechless’: Some parents, kids upset over tough PSLE maths paper

    This is expected because kids are trained to be exam-smart by reviewing past exams. Exams in Singapore are (laughably) mostly a “pattern recognition” exercise. It is based more on memory than on thinking – just remember the pattern and the model answer.

    Unfortunately, there is an infinite number of “patterns” in math. If the student sees a “new” pattern he panics because he is not really trained to think but to recognize “patterns”.

    Hence, local students are only “good on paper”, i.e., “exam-smart” but with poor analytical (and communication) skills.

    The math exams were likely made tougher this year because PAP wants to create more spaces in secondary schools for foreigners. More locals need to fail to create places for foreigners. It is that simple.

It looks well orchestrated, or is it because the vaccine happens to run out of efficacy at about the same time (after NDR), and so we are seeing a sudden surge of breakthrough infections?

  • “As of 1 October 2021, 12pm, the Ministry of Health has detected a total of 2,909 new cases of COVID-19 infection in Singapore, comprising 2,079 community cases, 818 dormitory residents cases and 12 imported cases. 1,356 cases are currently warded in hospital. 222 cases require oxygen supplementation and 34 are in the intensive care unit (ICU).”

    A friend whom I had beer with tonight had this to say when I told him about the figures:

    新加坡人太牛了!

    BTW, I heard some experts on CCTV predicted that Sinkieland will reach the 10,000 daily figures within a matter of days.

    The C19 spares no one, especially those oldies and goodies above 60 years of age, and most of our 3rd gen millisters are also within that age range, no?

    When the entire island is infected, no place is safe, not even in the ivory towers. So, please do the right thing and spare a thought for the peasants and may I add, the aristocrats as well.

    IMHO, if those clowns at MTF really cares about Sinkies and their own lives and loved ones, then they should resign and let others who have their heart in the right places to manage the C19 situation, which is very obviously getting out of control and going full-blown.

    I expect the dorm cases to be much higher given their close contact in the dorm. Wonder if they tested every FT worker? They revved up the vaccination program months ahead (Feb?) of the NDR and relaxed the rules, giving the people a false sense of optimism. Did they already know that the vaccine will wane in efficacy within 6 months – soon after the NDR?

  • @Zhenzidan

    Actually I was just pulling your leg, I can’t even if I have your card and password. In case you are not aware, the current banking policy is that the bank account is tied to your visa (for foreigners). Once the visa has expired, the bank account will be frozen till a fresh valid visa is presented to the bank.

    Say for example, you enter China on 1st Jan with a 14 days tourist visa and managed to open a bank account at ShenZhen. So you have an issued Union Pay card thinking that you can use the card back in Singapore, but actually, you can’t use the bank card after 14th Jan, because your bank account would already have been frozen automatically when your visa expires. A lot of unsuspecting foreigners didn’t know that until they realised that they can’t ‘touch’ the funds, including me which kenna once when I was in Hong Kong trying to spend with my union pay COL card.

    What happened was that quite a few years back, I had to renew my visa annually to remain in China, so I had to leave China to Hong Kong to get a fresh visa then return to China. However, when I was in Hong Kong waiting for my new visa, teh existing visa expired and when I tried to charge to my Union pay, the transaction was declined. Of course, when I returned to China, I went to the bank to cry father cry mother and it was only then that the bank told me of this regulation.

    Plainly put, your bank account will remain accessible only when your visa is valid and each time you change/renew your visa, you have to go down to the bank and update that information or else your account would be frozen, regardless of where you are on planet Earth, i.e. no valid visa, no access to your funds. I am not sure if the banks will ‘cheong’ the funds after a prolonged period or not, but next time when I visit the bank, I will ask.

    Additionally, the banks also have this US$50,000 per year limit on remittance whereby you need to declare and seek approval from the authorities before you can receive or remit amounts in excess of that. So if you have US$1 million sitting in an account in China and do not wish to go through the tons of paperwork getting approval, think how many donkey years it would take for you to remit the entire balance back to Sinkieland. lol

    BE VERY VERY CAREFUL of switching vaccine. My informed reliable source has read this advisory from a selected healthcare institution.

    If you have taken one or two doses of ANOTHER BRAND of vaccine, DO NOT vaccinate the Sinovac CoronaVac vaccine.

    So my thoughts will be this – AS A PRECAUTION of health safety – is to avoid change brand or make-up of vaccine but instead seek medical advice first.

    There are people I know Down Under that try AstraZenecca with Pfizer to no adverse outcome – it depends on each individual I suppose.

    Someone I personally know took AstraZenecca went through traumatic fightback to survive was finally given Pfizer as she can’t get any other brand for second dose and her doctor plainly refused to give her a second dose of AstraZenecca.

    I am NOT AGAINST VACCINE or against Sinovac. Merck is close to get getting a anti-viral oral pill – hopefully soon!

    Take a look at TKL, he is vaccinated and has already been CONvinced by the hoodwink that the C19 bites him, he won’t get seriously injured or die from it.

    The wayang kulit from the MTF is therefore breeding complacency adn those vaccinated will go around walking with their head high, thinking that they are super humans and the C19 can’t touch them.

    We have a question. Look forward to your reply.

    The question is in relation to you being tested POSITIVE.

    Question. Do you recall where you might have caught the bug? MRT? bus? or hawker centre and such?

    Look forward to your reply. Thanks.
