my views on this kind of people has always been the same. 

Put their names on newspapers... go hard on them. similarly if you are on MC and still go out for a meal gathering of 8 people, you deserve some publicity too.

I feel there is always that portion of population without common sense which cannot be convinced nicely. The stick is really the way to go... and it is kind of necesarry for the public good.

Sorry I add on. It depends on where you come from also. High risk or low risk.

Evidently not as this MOH document shows.

https://safetravel.ica.gov.sg/files/MOH-Health-Advisory-SHN.pdf

"2. Avoid contact with other persons residing in the same place of residence who are not serving SHN with you. "

https://safetravel.ica.gov.sg/health/shn/sdf

I THINK this is the latest one, it got explicitely state out who can do residence SHN.

This one you are right. If you are the only one on SHN and the rest of the household are not, you are not allowed to do your SHN at home. 

But people have been caught for lying until SHN officers go to spot check.

And that's how breached occur and shows  weakness and inadequacy of the safety measure in place. All should be quarantined in dedicated facility with stricter control.

And why these new citizens had to go back to india? All work WFH in India when Singapore was having crisis just last year? And now all wants to come back. 

my friend joked that because last year Singapore was having hundreds/thousands of cases daily, so they ran back to motherland

now motherland is having 300k cases daily, so they run back here

SINGAPORE: The growing number of COVID-19 clusters in the community are a concern, experts said, as they urged people to take existing safety measures seriously and monitor their health.

Senior consultant at the National University Hospital’s division of infectious disease Professor Dale Fisher said that the community cases are a “major test” for Singapore.

“The question is whether our public health systems and community behaviours can respond adequately to avoid another circuit breaker,” said Prof Fisher, who is also chair of the national infection prevention and control committee at the Ministry of Health (MOH).

He urged people not to go out unnecessarily for the next few weeks and to minimise mingling with people outside their households.

He encouraged people to be “obsessed” with wearing masks properly and exercising hand hygiene, and social distancing “especially when eating and drinking”.

“I am very concerned that we could lose control, yet we know by tightening our efforts we can defeat this surge together. This has to be a community effort,” he said.

 

Dale Fisher? B4 this said TTSH outbreak no cause for concern now dramatic U turn say something else? Whoa..calvin cheng, dale fisher leong hoe name..all have lost credibility...mebbe the folks at Hardwareware Zone more trustworthy...[laugh]

More concerningly, it appears that the short term visitors to the TTSH ward 9D are infected so readily? I would have though they would be considered transient contacts?

Given the well ventilated nature of Class C wards, and the stringent safe management / infection control measures etc, it is quite interesting that so many visitors can still be infected.

One thing I noticed about the 11 new cases... 7 patients 3 visitors and 1 staff.

silver lining is not many staff got it. It might shows the vaccination really helps or maybe staff is more on the ball.

Actually so many data has shown vaccination is really important so don't get second thoughts. 

Get vaccinated ASAP. 

My wife envy my vaccination, she want to get but cannot....

Don’t think that’s even a joke. It’s the truth.

I think the singpass app is REALLY good as it will alert me if I am at one of the danger areas. No need to look through this list... so many places how to remember...

This is what Lawrence Wong will say, we need to recalibrate our measures to balance between necessity and flexibility. Recalibrate until no common sense...

14 days at dedicated facilities, then 7 days at home if criteria allows for it. But they forget humans can lie, and SHN officers can't be everywhere on everyone everytime 😄

Hmm true. 

In that case, it being a Class C ward which is usually very busy with visitors, HCWs, auxiliary staff perpetually passing through, no amount of measures / controls / ventilation is going to help.

Since covid started, visiting hours are limited. At least in SGH, coz my father was warded there a few months back. There are two time slots and only 2 visitors at any moment. I can't recall the length of the time slot, but it like 2 or 3 hours. Consider transient?
