Tin HOT



The Covid-19 circuit breaker will be extended by one month to June 1, said Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong in his live national address at 5pm on Tuesday (April 21).

Singapore’s Multi-ministry Task Force (MTF) announced new measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus, which includes restricting entry to certain wet markets to alternate days based on on the last digit of a person’s NRIC or FIN number, further extending the Solidarity Budget’s key measures to May, and trimming the list of essential services.

The country is now 15 days into circuit breaker measures to choke off the spread of the virus.

  1. Dorms owners and migrant workers employers have committed a serious crime.

    They ve not only put 400,000 migrant workers lives at risk but the lives of all Singaporeans as well.

  2. Lee Hsien Loong can only maintain the country, he cant further develop the nation. Cox he didnt try to be better than his Father (Lee kyan Yew).
    During the catastrophic time, He need to use up his father Hard Earnings for the Nation. Whatever Lee Hsien Loong trying to do now the situation will get worse. Singapore need someone who is better than Lee kyan Yew to recover the Situation right now.

    Lee kyan Yew still have worry to handover the nation into his son before he pass away. I hope Lee Hsien Loong still listen to the Advice from Lee kyan Yew's Followers and his Best man. (I hope this message reach to Mr Lee Hsien Loong, he know himself too)

  3. Government should also give fine to people who are going to the parks with their family members! There are people are out with family members to go sightseeing to different parks which is far away from their home!

  4. I AM GOING TO BE BLUNT AND HONEST ABOUT THIS TRUE FACTS …. SG IS EXTREMELY TOO TINY TO HAVE OVER 5 MILLION POPULATION, IT MUST NEVER EXCEED MORE THAN 2 MILLION PEOPLE LIVING ON IT, THAT IS SO OBVIOUSLY WHY THE VIRUS KEEPS ON SPREADING ON THIS ISLAND …. POSSIBLY SG CAN OVERCOME THIS WUHAN ORIGINATED VIRUS SOMEDAY BUT TRUST ME IF IN FUTURE THERE IS A MORE SEVERE PANDEMIC LIKE THE SPANISH FLU OR MEASLES OUTBREAK OR ANY UKNOWN HIGHLY CONTAGIOUS VIRUS SPREAD ….. WE SHALL SEE THEN …. IN LIFE, NEVER THINK OF SHORT TERM GAIN ONLY WHEN YOU CAN NEVER ACHIEVE THE END GAME … ENOUGH SAID AND LET US ALL PRAY FOR MERCY FROM THE LORD ABOVE COS ONLY HE CAN SAVE US.

  5. Dengue @2014 rate. We had ~8,000 hospitalizations and ~50 ICU admissions will overwhelm all new facilities.

  6. The self-containment app in Korea is for self-contained people. It has a gps tracking function, so if you leave the address you registered initially, an alarm will appear and a person in charge will be informed. It is not intended for all citizens.

  7. 20 infections a day…..locking down 5 million…..
    Moving Singaporean’s out of flats to house foreigners…..this is not planning….this is reactionary responses. This type of planning will kill the lifeblood of Singaporean’s,

    A smart leader would do this.

    -Impose a massive full lockdown for 20 days.
    – SHN 14 days for all people entering Singapore.
    – During this time arrest anyone who fails to comply.
    – Now testing will begin on all Singaporean’s immediately on day 14 starting.
    – By this time all those with symptoms would have showed.
    – isolate and quarantine all those with covid and symptoms once they are detected during the 20 day lockdown. Do it in Hospitals. This infected number if exercised decisively from the beginning would be small.
    – after day 20 do a partial step by step reopening of the economy and labour force, this will go on 5 days.
    – the next 5 days will be spent watching. If there are zero local transmissions for 5 days in a row.
    – HAPPY OPENING CEREMONY FOR SINGAPORE. Airports remain closed till all outside cases are eradicated.

  8. The focus should be on testing for all Singaporeans to find the "reservoir", given that the virus is most likely to spread in the first few days when people show little to no symptoms. We definitely need more testing to find the reservoir of undetected cases.

  9. New CV19 side effect -> Turn you black! Two infected doctors in Wuhan has turned black. Not sure if its due to medication+CV19 or just CV19 attack on the liver or its due to long term infection they have been in hospital for 90 days+. Watch this space.

  10. Labour man with strong healthy will have no critical sickness and get well soon. Prevention of virus transmitted by asymptomatic carriers to weaken elders.

  11. In Singapore Pvt LTD there are many industries which charge monthly membership fees esp for example in gym, yoga studios, barber shops, spa centres and etc.
    Many of these places are still charging on people's bank account continuesly while providing no services at all.
    Govt is also providing help to these industries via rent cuts and tax cuts, providing business subsidies using taxpayers money. This loophole of aholes must stop so it stop the spread of wasting taxpayers and hard earned money of every individual in this hard time..

  12. The vaccine isn't done but countries around wanna restart the financial and economic sectors already… Let's see how many countries will turn into another Chernobyl city.

  13. Undeniably, Singapore is well run and the current government is competent. However, Singapore must resolve the succession issue. What if a monster emerges from the ruling Lee family? Try not to get caught with your pants down.

  14. https://youtu.be/zWmSAsIovSk

    We should be very careful about restart the economy. After we have achieved zero case . We should allow 1 extra month of CB with zero cases. Be kaisu than sorry.
    Learn from china peking experience. Tested twice with negative result n without symptoms.
