Could Singapore have done more to prevent the spike in COVID-19 cases among foreign workers in dormitories? Ministers Lawrence Wong and Josephine Teo responded to a journalist’s question at a news conference on Tuesday (Apr 21). “It’s not just a question of cost,” Mrs Teo said. “It is that to break the transmission, you really need a whole host of other things to happen – work stoppages, closing shopping areas, preventing people from socialising with one another. It goes well beyond cost.” Read more:

Lol. “Singaporean’s and migrant workers”. As I suspected, in the end, I would not be surprised if government simply fines the dorms. Is this called government safe distancing? One local Indian, who loves the cameras, a senior NUS fellow, dared to suggest that migrant workers should be grateful to Singapore government. Check it out on Bloomberg. We can guess who is buttering his Roti

The poor forgotten low socio class workers has bitten singapore govt on their prideful backside. Would these govt officials ever be sacked for their irresponsibility? Ohh better still, will the PM stand up and make an honourable apology to the forgotten foreign workers and their families ???

The biggest mistake here is building dormitories which are as big as possible ,accommodating about 15k workers.Why not build few small dormitories housing maximum 300 to 400 workers.

alkaline fruits above the virus pH levels, as follows:
lime pH8.2, tangerine pH8.5, mango pH8.7, orange pH9.2, lemon pH9.9, pineapple pH12.7, garlic pH13.2, and avocado pH15.6.
In Israel, everyone drinks a cup of hot tea mixed with lemon every morning and everning. The role of lemon and green tea can kill the viruse immediately, completely eliminate the virus from the body, alkalinize the immune system, because the body system becomes acidic at night, and the defence ability of the virus will also be reduced.
Patients recovered from hospital were advised to take:
1g Vitamin C per day, Vitamin E, drink warm water with lemon juice or drink lukewarm lemon water with honey (if affordable), one half boiled egg, total of 1.5 litre water per day, take warm or steamed food, no fried or oily food, and less salt or sugar, and daily exerciseat 10am or 4pm for half hour.
Hope these useful tips
will help most if not all to overcome the present pandemic crisis! Standup for Singapore!!!

What is the SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE and Truth proving what Lawrence Claim that those cases are not New Infections ? Does he have any medical qualifications ?
Don't get me wrong. I vote for him. But the honest in me wants to ask . I BELIEVE him but that's not scientific. If you believe , you perceive something is true. But that's without scientific evidence.

So why do I keep asking questions? Because if I don't you won't either. See, you have not and did not ask the questions I asked. You proved yourself to yourself.

Lol, Josephine Teo pushed the blame to Lawrence Wong. She is giving me the impression that she cannot do anything until the circuit breaker is in place.

Hello Josephine, you have done a GOOD JOB
Whole world taking the precious chance to mock at Singapore on how we handle our dear foreign worker.
And yet you still can have all the gut to refute that is no wrong at all from your way of handling.
People from the public me inclusive urge you to mandate /stop workers like us Singaporean to stay home. But no. We cannot stop them we can mandate this and that.
Anyway good job. We are famous now.
