Glaring difference between Professionals and Amateurs

Financial hub Shanghai in China canceled over 500 flights and locked down several residential areas, closed schools, and suspended tourism programs on Friday (26th Nov) after 3 locally-transmitted Covid-19 cases emerged in the city.

Twenty hospitals also suspended its outpatient and emergency medical services for 3 days.

Volunteers wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) arrange food supplies at the entrance of a residential block under restrictions to halt the spread of the Covid-19 coronavirus on Nov 26, 2021 in Shanghai, China. Shanghai reported three new local COVID-19 cases on Thursday.

According to a municipal government statement, the 3 positive cases were friends from the nearby city of Suzhou who attended a lecture about ancient architecture last week. They were in close contact with almost 200 people, prompting 20 hospitals to suspend outpatient and emergency medical services for 3 days out of caution, per the statement.

All 3 of the travelers were fully vaccinated, health authorities also said.

The restrictions are part of China’s zero tolerance Covid-19 policy, to completely stamp out any trace of the coronavirus within its borders through swift lockdowns and curbs.

The difference between Professionals and Amaterus are so glaring, in a government that puts the safety of its people in the 1st place and one that does not care how many of its residents are infected.

What do you think?

    The measures are just too draconian!

  • @Objective observer

    “draconian” is subjective, would you agree?

    I went through lockdown for almost 4 months, yes, it was hard in the beginning unable to go out, but then you start to realise that it is actually safer to be at home, then it becomes enjoyable.

    Sleep, eat and surf the web, how nice! The employers CANNOT sack you for that and you continue to get your salary. No money to buy food because you are daily paid or freelance, just call the local community centre’s dedicated line and they will have rice, cooking oil, meat and vegetables at your doorstep, FOC.

    For those oldies but goodies couple or single stuck at home due to the lockdown, there will be community volunteers or neighbors to visit them on a DAILY basis to either deliver food (both cooked and uncooked) and check on them.

    Out of salt, sugar or milk and you need it within an hour, just announce your special needs on the local community’s official WeChat group and those in the same estate as you will provide them, like when a family in the estate mask supply was low, all of us in the same estate chipped in and donate 100 pieces to them. Mind you, mask was very expensive during the C19, at almost RMB$2 a piece and stocks were low. Now I have over 1000 pieces lying around gathering dust! lol

    I have a doctor neighbor downstairs (one level below me) who had no WIFI installed as they had just moved in and had asked if they could share our WIFI, so I took one of my spare wireless routers and created a repeater in their unit for them to ‘leech’ off my home WIFI, Now we are the best of friends, constantly sharing food and drinks. He happens to be working in the same hospital that is treating me for my stroke, he would regularly procure my medication for me whenever I am out of stock since he knows the specialists that are treating me.

    It’s not as if you will starve, no cigarettes or no liquor. All these can be ordered online and delivered to your doorstep within hours. Bored of staying at home, bring your puppy or cat downstairs for a stroll, you cannot leave the estate but that does not mean cannot go to the estate’s garden. Just need to wear mask and be mindful of the 1m safe distance when you chit chat with others.

    Their volunteers are very organised, working in tandem like clockwork perfectly. Got fever, not feeling well, just call the local community centre’s dedicated line and they will have an ambulance to ferry you to the hospitals and back (if you are not infected), all FOC. If non-fever related mild sickness, they will send a doctor to your house, also FOC.

    Before my stroke and the C19 pandemic, I thought that the PRC Chinese are almost certainly as selfish as the Sinkies I know when I was in Sinkieland, but I was proven so dead wrong. It appears that whenever it comes to a national disaster and fellow residents in distress, the majority of them would not hesitate to lend a helping hand and contribute whatever they can. They are so united in the face of this C19 pandemic, it leaves me completely speechless.

    Anyway, based on the above and for your own safety, what more can you ask for?

    If you were given a choice of say a lockdown like Shanghai for a month to eradicate Sinkieland completely of the C19 or continue to suffer 2000+ infections a day, which would you choose?

    $G citizens are too soft and always settle for the comfortable option.

    Like bringing in FT, voting Regime again and again, eating Regime chicken rice, always declaring “you die your business or not my problem”, and getting jabbed as Guinea Pigs.

    All easy options. Even if the choices kill them. And most likely it will.

    I agree, most Sinkies are so pampered that they have forgotten how to think for themselves and others.

    When people kenna sued by the LEEder, everyone so eager to chip in to ‘slap’ the LEEder with $3/4 million dollars, like sibei shiok like that, but when those genuinely in need ask for help, these people pretends not to notice and adopt a “you die your business” attitude.

  • Smart Nation:

    The war against Covid-19 is lost the day they told the people to “live with the virus.” Now that 90% have been vaccinated, not much else can be done. If the Omicron breaks through the body’s immune system with no vaccine protection, there will panic. More healthcare workers will resign after they get their bonus!

    You want to live under Chinese Communist where there is no freedom of speech like calling Xi Winnie the Pooh and corruption is rampant ?

    You want to be abuse by the Chinese Communist that make you work from 9am to 9pm for 6 days and if you protest it, you will disappear at night ?

    You want to eat fake and toxic food where everyone only cares about making money at the expense of others ? No morals at all.

    I am as a Vietnamese and all Vietnamese have known this for at least 2-3 decades now. We never eat or buy anything imported from China. Even the shop owners know they can’t sell anything imported from China. If foods are imported from China and repacked as Vietnamese products, we can even recognize and never buy them again, so it’s a huge loss for the importers. A big factor is that we don’t eat anything imported from China, especially fruits (can stay for months and never rotten), as we know how POISONOUS they are.

  • Stupid Singaporeans:

    We all know our Ministers are of low calibres compared to others. People closed, they open legs. Other government people knew the danger to sign on CECA, they signed blindly.

    Do you know why our Ministers behave this way? Because at the end, they still receive their millions and the ones got affected by their bad decisions are not them.

    But, how can we blame them if majority keep voting them blindly. You ask for it, you deserve to be screwed painfully while they laugh all the way to the banks.

  • Zero Confidence:

    Almost 89% vaccinated in Commieland; with Chineeese vax.
    NO confidence in their own vax.
    No confidence in their health system.
    Why vaccinate and still do total lockdown.
    Might as well take Chineeese herbs and use YinYang balance to get rid of virus.
    Remember–TCM does not believe in virus nor that virus cause illness.

    “There is no single silver bullet that can protect Singapore from new variants of the coronavirus causing Covid-19, so Singapore has to stay nimble and rely on the latest data to adjust its safety measures quickly each time the virus mutates, Finance Minister Lawrence Wong said.”

    Please lah, our MTF are not amateurs, nor professionals; they are Fuxking Clowns. Recall rest of world was hurrying stocking on masks but our clowns said no need to wear mask if not sick, and then issued 4 masks PER HOUSEHOLD to last 3-4 months to show that they had stockpiled “sufficient” masks in SG. But the best clown act was to allow arrivals from high infectious countries into SG if they transit thru Nepal. Why don’t the MTF simply do that again for Omicron now?

    Of course you are most welcome, unfortunately, you cannot come to the city where I am based in to enjoy “heaven” because the city has gone more than a year WITHOUT any trace of the C19 (说了都不好意思). However, you can go to Suzhou, Shanghai or Inner Mongolia to try their lockdown. lol

    Like i said before since China strong influence in Africa , why not help to treat all the omicron africa patients with chinese herbs ” huaqinglianwen ” or whatever.

    Pro China fans can lead by example, get yourself infected with Omicron variants and 堂堂正正 recover using only huaqinglianwen.

    Had lived in mainland China at different places for short period of 2-3 weeks at a time. This includes remote, small county cities in Xinjiang, Tibet, Qinghai, Sichuan, Inner Mongolia, Shanxi, Shangxi, Heilongjiang, Yunnan, Guizhou, Guangxi and etc.

    Enjoyed the food, the hospitality of the people, the generous endowment by the nature for the land.

    The country is big, the people are diverse, friendly. It is up to anyone to know them and appreciate the immense cultural buildup, some of which with foundations laid thousands of years ago. Benefit tremendously during each and every visit!

    BLOODY AH TIONG LAND GOT IT RIGHT, they are laughing at the rest of the world – with the eruption of Omicron, how many countries are shutting their borders yet again. It is LOCK DOWN on a global, not national, scale.

    Opening up prematurely is inviting and welcome the virus in via the front door. VTL is BULLSHIT fantasyland dreaming of utopia.

    Singapore’s long-awaited opening is flopping even before Omicron.

    https://sg.yahoo.com/finance/news/singapores-long-awaited-opening-is-flopping-even-before-omicron-023720303.html

    THIS CAN’T WORK, WON’T WORK IN A HURRY BUT THE RISKS CONSEQUENCES IS GOING TO BE ASTRONOMICAL if it backfired as it appears ready of Omicron (empire) fightback!

    What do you think?

    It is correct for any one country to do all it can to protect its own citizens. Only if you accept the anachronistic idea that nation states are a rational or sustainable way for a species to organize its affairs

    WE must stop following a “vaccine-only” or “lock-down” strategies and beef up research on and availability of early treatments, not just for those who cannot be or refuse to be vaccinated, but also to protect all because vaccines and natural immunity might not work against Omicron and other new mutations.

    “The people’s status as masters of the country is the essence of people’s democracy.”

    China has gotten democracy right. The bullshit about from, by and for the people has proven to be bullshit.

    Professionals: When the servants are no good, they are replaced. People as masters deserve and get good service.

    Amateurs: In some democracies, the natural or unnatural aristocrats are masters. When the servants are no good but can carry balls, the aristocrats praise and reward them. The people get bad service, with high cost.

    民主制度强调的是主(人民)仆(政府)关系。仆人不称职,用和平的手段换新的仆人。说起来好像是很理想。但是换仆人的程序却粗制滥造,仆人会一个比一个差,关心的只是自己职位的稳和延续,做的就是去讨好自己的主人,弃国家和整体利益于不顾,最后的结果就是国家的败落。
