As proud Singaporean, we full support our Government as what they had done for the country all these years. It is never an easy job to undertake as it requires 100% commitment to the people of Singapore. Some might disagreed as outwardly, it may seems like there isn’t much that are shown. We always have the thoughts of people who are wielding the high positions in the Government have to undertake pretty huge stress as how to govern in a much proper way and satisfy the majority. In life, you can never get 100% cooperation from everyone since there will always be dissatisfaction due to one thing or another.

But we look into the overall situation and what we can see that had been done over the years, we truly can boost ourselves for being proud of our Government and as Singaporeans. It took us quite a number of decades to be where we are now and we should shower our appreciations for all that had been done for us Singaporeans by the Government. It is never a easy job but thanks for hanging on and continue with what you will be doing for us all.

An example of the current COVID-19 pandemic situation, we could witnessed the handling by the Government with proper steps of contingency plan to carry out based on some recommendations by WHO. Of course there will definitely be some hiccups as things might not work well but the important part is we learned from the mistakes and move forward. We do know that some people are not happy over some methods of implementation for this COVID-19 situation but we must know that even the Government are just humans like us and going through life with mistakes are kind of unavoidable at times. Important thing is we must move forward thereafter with a new plan to tackle the situation after learning from the mistake itself. That is the good example we agree with the Government for the approach that had been taken and help us to tide over the crisis.

Please continue to be vigilant about COVID-19 crisis as we do know that it is not over until it is over with the vaccine cure which can be many years later. So please do not be complacent and stay guard with all the necessary precautions like wearing masks & social distancing in public. Also it is important to wash your hands with soap frequently especially before touching your eyes, nose and mouth since it is the entry point of the virus into your body. As far as possible, try to stay at home for isolation since it will be your best cure of prevention.

Be blessed with good health and take care of yourself & loved ones.

PM Lee Hsien Loong on the COVID-19 situation in Singapore on 3 April 2020

As we watched this speech made by PM Lee Hsien Loong on the COVID-19 situation in Singapore on 3 April 2020, we do understand the seriousness of this deadly virus which is spreading like wildfire. We believe it is time for us to stand up together as a Nation to do our parts as to eliminate this deadly virus. We need to be UNITED about this matter before it gets out of hands and this virus can ONLY be eliminated if we as a part of this Nation to do whatever is necessary.

The best solution will be everyone to stay isolated for 1 month as this will allow the COVID-19 to die off itself without any human contact. However it may not be possible since we still need to buy essentials like food so remember to keep your safe distance from one another and wear masks whenever necessary. When you are in public places, try not to touch your face and remember to wash your hands with soap as often as possible when you need to rub your face. Proper personal hygiene is very IMPORTANT as it helps to eliminate the possibility of getting the infection.

Remember that you are doing all the safety measures will be for yourself and your loved ones. Just quarantine yourself for 1 month and things will be better thereafter when everyone do their parts.

Also what we can help the Government in contact tracing will be downloading this TraceTogether app as it will enable better tracing of those who are around us while we are exposed in public places. As we do know that we will not be able to identify people we are with during the period of doing your shopping in public. This app will help to identify them via TraceTogther app using Bluetooth which will download the contact numbers. This information of your phone numbers will be encrypted in order to safeguard it. It will only be requested for you to send if you are in contact with someone who is infected by the virus. It will only be your phone numbers which is encrypted and send for decryption whenever is needed.

Time to be UNITED as a Nation to put an end to this virus together.

Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s message of coronavirus

In the midst of panic buying products due to the current situation about the coronavirus, Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong giving a much comforting speech to all Singaporeans. He said that coronavirus outbreak will be a kind of test for Singapore’s social cohesion including psychological resilience. It is a kind call for all Singaporeans to be calm.

A video was made by PM Lee Hsien Loong on the 2019-nCoV situation in Singapore on February 8, 2020.

He suggested that all Singaporeans should stay calm when facing this situation as fear will do more harm instead. Therefore, we should not panic even though the status of DORSCON level had raised to Orange which was similar during 2009 for the H1N1 swine flu situation. It does not mean locking down the city or confining people in their homes. It is comforting to hear him telling us not to stock up for those essential supplies as our country possesses ample supplies.

Should there be any changes in the current situation of being worsens then we will need to come up with a new strategy instead. Just like what you have heard in his speech, we all should do our parts in keeping ourselves safe like wearing mask when you are not feeling well and with proper washing of our hands with soap. All the right measures should be taken to combat with this coronavirus and soon we will be free from it. Everyone just do their parts in keeping ourselves safe and avoid spreading when you are feeling unwell. Take all necessary precaution and be safe.

Thumb up for our Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong!
