PM Lee’s speech

This commentary is a summary of my thoughts and reflections after having listened to lhl and the MTF ministars yesterday.

C19 vaccination. We now know that C19 vaccinations do not accord us the protection from infection or transmission and their efficacies wane much after a few months. With that knowledge, it has becomes the government’s logic for encouraging Singaporeans to get their 3rd booster jab.

I ask since we now know that their efficacies decline markedly after a few months, is the government then going to ask people who still trust them to go for their 4th and 5th jabs etc in the months ahead?

Do we really believe that we can vaccinate our way out to live life like pre-covid days? Have the MTF and their so called expert committee seriously evaluate holistically the virus injuries vs vaccine injuries equation in their overall strategy moving forward etc? With our high vaccination rates especially with the mRNA technology and related issues etc, Singapore along with Israel have become a major laboratory or guinea pigs that many other countries are watching.

Ivermectin. I ask if Ivermectin is a dirty word to the pap government, perhaps for reasons best known to themselves. News about some countries’ experiences with Ivermectin to cure C19 infection have reported encouraging successes. I ask if they are unaware or those reports are fake or exaggerated or what?

Here at home, I ask if serious efforts have been made by our relevant authorities to study and understand deeper whether Ivermectin has any useful roles at combating C19? Ivermectin has been reported to be an inexpensive and effective drug at treating C19 patients.

In our journey towards living with C19, we really shouldn’t leave any stone unturned that could potentially benefit our people.

Next, from 13 October, unvaccinated people will be barred from eating at coffee-shops, hawker centres and entering shopping malls etc. It is inevitable that such a decision will inconvenienced many, many people including unvaccinated people who work in those places. It is another glaring example of an ill- conceived decision by the pap government.

Cutting through the chase, shouldn’t it be the unvaccinated who should be more afraid of contracting C19 rather than vaccinated persons? Allowing only vaccinated people to dine in at hawker centres and coffee shops not only defy logic, it is likely to give vaccinated people a false sense of security because, I stress, even vaccinated persons can catch C19 and become silent spreaders without even realising it and that is very scary.

This possibility and the risks are real and they have not been properly and satisfactorily addressed by the MTF after all these past months. The government shouldn’t pretend, underplay it or simply adopt a bury thy head in the ground mentality and the people must have the gumption, the spine and the courage to press their government to properly address it in our own and our loved ones’ safety interest and with urgency.

I, however, agree that saving our health care system from collapsing under the weigh of C19 infection is very important, hence, the Stay Home Quarantine measure for people who are ART tested positive is an important part of the overall protocol, however, laws must be promptly tighten and if necessary, with temporary provisions passed to ensure compliance otherwise, at best, we will only fool ourselves and at worse, we quietly sow C19 infection en masse through weak government policies again at the grassroot and heartland levels.

I have not forgotten that the C19 Delta variant which we are currently dealing with is a highly transmissible variant and I hope that the MTF hasn’t forgotten that too.

Think.

  • Kudos:

    It seems like everyone should be barred from shopping malls once again.

    On the brighter side, Israel’s daily new cases are 15 to 20% of its peak in early September. So in about one month’s time, Singapore’s daily new cases will be about 700 plus a day.

    Hong Kong is doing extremely well in handling covid. They can seat 12 people at a table currently! Maybe more should be learnt from them.

    Tech: The clueless clowns at MTF are banking on Sinkieland going the way of Isreal and the C19 virus getting sick and tired of biting or when the majority of the populace is infected and develop natural immunity. Even if that should happen, it is surely no credit of these clowns, but nature at play, but I am sure the emperor would surface to heap praises and award themselves millions in bonus for a “job well done”, which most Sinkies by then would have been seriously injured or up the lorry.

    BTW, HK did not opt for living with the virus, they have all along gone for the zero-C19 policies, aided by the experts from China, which is why their figures are slowly dropping to zero. I reckon by X’mas, HK will be like China while Sinkies can only salivate at home munching on Maggie Mee.

  • opposition dude:

    With Merck’s wonder pill entering the scene it throws up a few possibilities.

    1 – If the pill is successful the government might well use it in place of vaccines since it would kill the virus. Remember, this is MEDICINE for treating the virus, not a vaccine to prevent infection. 2 totally different things.

    2 – They might use both the pill and the vaccines and allow people to choose to get jabbed or take the pill

    3 – The pill isn’t very effective and the government encourages all to get 6 month shots when it’s time to do so

    All eyes are on Merck right now so let’s give it 6 months until next April to see just how good or bad it is.

    Please include legit links or proof that Ivermectin works. I’ve tried Googling for hours and hours. I cannot find any legit report that haven’t been disproven. By default I always ignore forums and conspiracy news outlets.

    I think for TR-Emeritus, if you don’t want to kena POFMA or FICA, please moderate the quality of posts. We need alternative voices or opinions, not fake news or spin confusion or doubt especially in a GLOBAL health crisis like we have now. If this is the quality of alternative views, no wonder our opposition quality is in dismay.

    Tech: If I am not wrong, Ivermectin is widely used in India with good results. Have you try Yahooing that? Most search engines are ‘controlled’ and ‘under the influence’ of gahments and big pharma, so don’t stick to using only one. Take Facebook for example, they are all for Pfizer, try creating a page for Sino or Modena and see what happens.

    We must respect Covid19 but we must not be paralysed with fear?

    Sure,but we must admit DELTA did COME FROM CECA-imports who were quarantined here haughtily in Tiny n overcrowded Sg and,thereafter,put to integrate with sgs and causing a wild fire spread months after lockdown when community cases were near zero.

    Why refuse to admit?
    Why?

  • Considering the current pathetic state of affairs in Sinkieland in managing the C19, I would urge those who have yet to be infected to get out of Sinkieland and go somewhere safe like NZ, Taiwan or China and sit out the pandemic.

    If you have a BMW, sell it and that would allow you to buy an apartment in 2nd or 3rd tier cities in China. I am sure there are fellow citizens who are already there and can assist provide more information if you ask.

    No point hanging on to eventually lose your health and maybe even life.

  • Reject Racist Trolls:

    Xoxo, you are first class racist. Everything, you will twist, to blame Indians. So, delta doesn’t come from Indonesia, Malaysia or other countries? how did Taiwan or China get Delta, they are closed to India? No blame for the bad behavior of the KTV patrons? (maybe because they are Chinese so how can blame them, mah? they be given a free pass). Last year, when original Wuhan virus created havoc in Spore, did you blame Ah Tiongs and our FTA with China for that?

    Tech: I agree. It is fair to say the Delta originated from India but to blame the Indians for it, is grossly unfair to them since they did not intentionally cause the spread to the rest of the world. It is akin to blaming the hookers for spreading AIDS.

    Ironically the PAP party themselves has been ruling with fear, and paralysed with fear because citizens are waking up , rushing porma, fica and ridiculous law to make them look silly since Singapore independence.

    “We must respect Covid19 ”
    So silly. We respect Covid by opening the floodgate with more Covid19, infect family member with Covid because the self-isolation with family, is how how we respect Covid ? It look like PAP is respecting Covid by paying tribute to it through human sacrifices.

    Basically, Loong’s speeches are NEVER inspiring, perhaps it is like he is just forcing himself to deliver a message because of protocol or because he has to say something and be done with it.

  • Harder Truths:

    When the Regime said that Sinkies must die for their country they weren’t kidding.

    The virus will re-emerge again – and every time some people are going to die. It will be like the influenza. The question is if everyone is just going to sit in their units for the rest of their lives.

    Given the way the Regime thinks this will be very much the future for us. Why? Because they cannot admit they are wrong and have no idea what to do. Rather than let us live normal lives we will forever be wearing masks and living in fear of something terrible happening.

    As long as the Regime is in charge no one will live a normal life again.

    Tech: Living with the virus is just an idea, a theory that’s banking on the possibility of an elusive herd immunity after the majority of the populace has been infected. In order to achieve this, many oldies but goodies (over 5,000 at current death rate) will have to lose their lives to test out this theory, which may not even work. So these oldies but goodies will not be dying for their country, but for the PAPies’ elusive dream of a herd immunity and for the LEEder’s face.

    However, on the other end of the scale, a tested and proven zero-C19 policy will maybe lose a lot of $$$, but at least no oldies but goodies need to lose their lives.

    Anyone with an ounce of brain matter in the right place must surely know which policy is better, no?

    Unfortunately for Sinkies, to the PAPies, $$$ appears to be more important than common peasant’s lives.

    To Tech:
    Yup, I did read about the India “cases”. IF that’s the news that you are reaching for then it has proven my point. Lab setting is different from chems in a human body. Have you read about how many people died after using the drug? Of course not, because it is a freaking echo chamber in here.

    Secondly, don’t create hysteria by creating fake superpowers of our gahment and big pharma. Granted they have some pull in what we can or cannot see, but any person who have ever used any technical methods to bypass any censorship will tell you nothing can really be hidden in the internet. You dont have to tell me not to stick to Google, if I have such tunnel vision I wouldn’t venture into this blog for alternative news.

    You seemed to be a moderator in this place, TOC is already down. I don’t want to see another avenue of alternative views taken down. Improve the quality, please.

    Tech: Thank you for your advice. I merely stated my opinion and what I have observed the big pharma are doing. I am suggesting that one should not stick to just one source of information and should look at other reliable sources. As such, I believe it was a fair comment and therefore I am not worried about your creating “hysteria” allegation, which I certainly did not.

  • LEEs betrayed Singapore:

    Singaporeans bated on the WORNG HORSE when they elected LHL and his MILLION DOLLAR SELF SERVING MINISTERS.
    We Singaporeans DESERVE A PM of Jacinda Arden caliber for the amount the tax payers money paid to them. When the mosque in Christchurch was attacked she as a PM came forward and assured the the citizens.
    Compare that with LHL when Mas Selemat escaped from maximum security prison and the whole SAF was look for him LHL WENT INTO HIDING. For two weeks there was no SOUND OR SIGHT OF HIM. Lucky for our SAF personal Singapore is NOT AT WAR AND LHL IS NOT THE COMMANDER. If he is all our brave sons will be SLAUGHTERED.
    Even in the handeling of the covid pandemic LHL is hardly seen,he leaves it to his MTF BLURFUCK MINISTERS. Compare this with Jacinda Arden and even UK PM Boris Johnson, THEY ARE MORE PROACTIVE even with governing bigger countries and earning way lesser than LHL. Jacinda even went for a pay cut during the pandemic .LHL was earing his full MILLIONS and busy SUING citizen UNTIL THEIR PANTS DROP.
    LHL only says EMPTY AND HOLLOW WORDS like FOR YOU WITH YOU.LHL should GROW SOME BALLS and start controlling his MAN WIFE and stop being POWER AND MONEY HUNGRY and TRULY SERVE THE PEOPLE OF SINGAPORE.
    He is the WORST PM in SINGAPORE short history.
