  2. Having been very much involved in the 2003 pandemic outbreak, which spread across >35 countries and killing almost 800 people, I do not wish to see any diseases of such kind in my life again. I was one of the member in MOH committee to map out the quarantine and employee health screening requirement, and at the same time working closely with MOM and our regional team to map out the pandemic response plan, which include splitting functional team into 2 or more groups, to be stationed in different offices. I can tell you that everyone, including personnel from MOH and MOM, are clueless as to what is the best approach, so every suggestion and reasoning counts. One of my colleague was infected when he went to SGH for his regular medical checkup and died a few days later. The saddest part is that none of us were able to send him off (he was in fact cremated on the same day for fear of spreading the virus further). Dr Alexandre Chao, the only son of Professor Chao Tzee Cheng (renowned forensic pathologist in Singapore), was one of the 33 who died from severe acute respiratory syndrome (Sars), while serving in a hospital fighting the deadly virus. China probes pneumonia outbreak for Sars links: State media BEIJING (AFP) - China is investigating an outbreak of atypical pneumonia that is suspected of being linked to Sars, the flu-like virus that killed hundreds of people a decade ago, state media reported on Tuesday (Dec 31). A team of experts from the National Health Commission were dispatched on Tuesday to Wuhan, in central China's Hubei province, and are "currently conducting relevant inspection and verification work", state broadcaster CCTV reported. An emergency notification issued on Monday by the Wuhan municipal health committee said hospitals in the city have treated a "successive series of patients with unexplained pneumonia", without offering details. Chinese news site The Paper reported 27 cases of viral pneumonia in Wuhan in December, citing unnamed health officials from the city. "Of the 27 cases, seven were critical, the rest were under control, and two patients are expected to be discharged from hospital in near future," The Paper said. It is unclear whether all these patients are suspected of having contracted severe acute respiratory syndrome (Sars), a highly contagious respiratory disease. The emergency notification has urged hospitals to offer treatment and report cases in a "timely manner".
  3. It was a hard time - 31 unforgettable days, beginning on Jan. 20, when the cruise ship set off from Yokohama, and ending on Feb. 20, when the quarantine was over, and countries sent chartered planes to evacuate their nationals. Of 3711 people on the vessel, there were 634 confirmed cases up to Feb. 20, among them there was a quarantine officer & a firefighter. About 1/5 people on board were infected. The inside space of the vessel, sealed, crowded, with a suitable temperature and humidity for corona virus, COVID19 is highly infectious. Luckily, infectious as it is, it is not deadly. Half of the confirmed cases are asymptomatic. There are very few severe or mortality cases so far. More info: 69% of the people on Diamond Princess are over 50 years old. 87% of the confirmed cases are over 50 years old. 2 dead cases so far, both are over the age of 80. The elderly need to pay more attention to #COVID19.
  4. I noticed there have been discussions on the Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) in the forum, or “Wuhan Pneumonia” as we call it. So I will express my opinions here. In the subtropical and temperate regions, winter and spring are the seasons highly risky of virus-related diseases: flu, SARS, MERS... We all remember SARS in 2002-2003. SARS began in November 2002, and ended in May 2003. Virus needs a suitable temperature to survive outside the human body, mostly the range of 7-27 degrees Celsius as I remember. If the temperature is too high, it becomes inactive and dies eventually. That’s a main reason why SARS stopped all of a sudden in China in May 2003, when summers came. In tropical countries such as Singapore, the tropical sunlight can boil eggs directly. Virus cannot survive long once it leaves human body. That’s why people in Singapore don’t need to worry too much about 2019-nCoV. The possibility of human-to-human infection is low. I guess in Singapore and Malaysia, there are very few cases of flu outbreak either. Tropical climate is a reason. (If I’m wrong, please correct me.) To be on the safe side, better not travel to China (especially Central China) these days, if not necessary. Safety is always the top priority. As of yesterday (20 Jan.), almost everyone in China is on alert now, taking precautions. And all the official media are publicizing information about this disease. Wish us luck😊 Photo: a company is giving masks to the staff today in Shunde, Guangdong
