As what we view about this deadly virus that totally require every single human being to do what is necessary to avoid the spread of infection. Yes! Only we can help to prevent it from spreading further as long as we do our parts of preventive measures. As far as the information we understand, this virus is transmitted from human to human through contact of touching someone who is infected via touching our eyes, nose and mouth. Therefore the safeguard of having to wear masks is vital to help the chance of having the infection when someone close to you is sneezing or cough as it might transfer to you.

Remember the rule of washing hands with soap at least 20 seconds to get rid of any form of COVID-19 that you may have contacted with while you are in public places since it will likely be that you have made contact with surfaces that may be infected with the virus. It is better to be safe than sorry!

Best of all if possible, refrain from going out and stay at home as it will allow the virus to die off. This virus is being transmitted human to human and if every single human being in the world can avoid being in contact with people for just ONE MONTH, we sincerely believe that it will help to eliminate this virus. The reason as why it is spreading so widely is due to the gathering of people in public and touching the surface where there is the infection as we never know that it exists. This is a silent deadly virus where it can stay on surfaces of materials for a period of time when someone who has COVID-19 made contact with it.

That is why we are now witnessing so many people from all over the world being infected with it. Sadly that many people are dead with this infection. We have to be clear about this as the virus does not care who you are as once you are infected, your life is in danger. Like the saying goes: Prevention is better than cure.

We are happy that in Singapore, our Government has taken great measures to handle the situation of COVID-19 pandemic in stages. Now after our election in Singapore, our Government is back to help all Singaporeans to ease the situation on employment and economy as well as making sure that the COVID-19 does not come with the second wave like what other countries are experiencing. Though we understand the emotionally factors where people are voting for the oppositions but we strongly believe that in time to come, they will soon realize the importance of having the right Government to do the macro-management of the country. We all must look at the bigger picture for the entire country as who we should rely on to keep Singapore growing. We do understand that we human beings are quite easily sway by emotions of unhappiness as to disregard the right choice of choosing who should be governing the country. It is time to clear our minds for the next 5 years’ term and have a clearer vision of what we want for Singapore and then make the right choice of leaders.

We must all stand together as human beings to help ourselves and others to overcome the current situation. Do the right thing for yourself as well as for others so that you can help to overcome all obstacles in life and making the best out of it. As long as the vaccine cure for the COVID-19 is still not available, try to reduce the amount of travel in public. The situation will definitely improve if every single person in the country itself allow themselves to be isolated in their homes for a month. This will allow the virus to stop transmitting from human to human and thereby dying off by itself. But in reality, it will definitely not possible for every single person to do at the same time therefore it is critical for those individuals who are required to travel to take all necessary precautions as to avoid transmitting or getting infected. That way, we can be sure that there will be reduction of transmission with this virus and soon we will be able to travel with lesser risks of getting this infection.

Remember, help yourself as you can help others to avoid getting this deadly virus. Be blessed with good health and take care of your loved ones.
