Driving experience in USA

Today we will be showing photographs of some driving scenery taken from inside the car. As you may realize that it is left-hand drive which is different from Singapore. So, it is a matter of getting use of telling yourself of doing the opposite like slow lane is on the right side instead of left. You will definitely need have the orientation of left to be right and right to be left kind of driving on the road.

That’s all for today. We will be back again for more photographs shown in USA. If you had been to California, USA then we would love to hear your comments about this place.

Side Note:

As of 14 June 2020 morning, the number of infection cases have risen to 7,860,748 while the death rates are now 432,200. If you compared with 2 days ago at 7,458,646 cases, it does not seem to be under control in some countries after easing on the restriction. Therefore, we sincerely hope that people will come to realize that regardless whether or not your Government is easing on the restriction, you have to take all necessary precaution of wearing mask & do social distancing from others while in public. This is the most basic precaution you should be taking under any circumstances without fail. That will in return safeguard not only yourself but to others who are in close contacts while in public. Never let your guard down even your Government has relaxed on the restriction as economy starts to open up.

Just do it from today onward! It will be the new norm in life with COVID-19.

In Singapore, we can see that our Government is stepping up with all sorts of precautions which is like Work-In-Progress since we do not really know what really works when the restriction starts to ease down after Circuit Breaker. We do understand that there is no foolproof plan that will work for all instances but much like trial an error kind of implementation. Of course there maybe some form of conflicts with implementation which might not be satisfying to everyone. At times, people might even get a little confused about the Phase 1 for businesses with regard to who can be opened and who cannot operate. There is no right or wrong way of doing thing as it is first time experience of such deadly virus unlike during the SARS period which was controllable.

No matter what plans are implemented, we the people should do the most basic precaution of wearing masks & doing social distancing from others in public. Plus washing our hands with soap frequently as to remove any virus before touching your eyes, nose or mouth while in public. Also, as far as possible during this period to isolate yourself whenever it is permitted so you can actually reduce the transmission of human to human. Let us all do our parts to help eliminate further spreading of contact between human to human. Be more civic minded when you are traveling in public and try not to join in the crowded places. As long as each of us take care of our own personal hygiene, it will definitely helps to reduce the chances of spreading through contacts.

Lastly, we sincerely do hope everyone can take these simple advice as how we can help one another to avoid further spreading in community. As long as there are unknown sources of infection, it is still very dangerous to be in public.

  1. Wearing masks whenever you are in public as a preventive measures.
  2. Washing hands with soap frequently as to eliminate the virus staying on your hands.
  3. Do social distancing from others as it helps to prevent the spread of infection without close contact.
  4. Do not touch your eyes, nose and mouth before you wash your hands with soap as it will be the source of entry for the virus to get you infected.
  5. If you need to sneeze, please use a tissue or otherwise bend your elbow and sneeze in between there.
  6. Should you have fever, cough and shortness of breathe, please do consult a doctor. Remember to wear mask when doing so.
  7. In order for more effective contact tracing, please do download the TraceTogether app for those who are staying in Singapore. This will actually eliminate those unknown sources as well as allow you to be informed should you be exposed to someone having the infection.

Circuit Breaker Extension in Singapore

We had heard about the latest update by PM Lee yesterday about the COVID-19 situation and the Circuit Breaker’s extension till 1st June 2020.

As what I personally view that the amount of unknown sources are still quite high which means there are difficulties to prevent further spreading if we do not take serious action. It will not just be the Government’s action plan to work alone but cooperation from everyone of us to put an end for COVID-19. It is our fight against this deadly virus to ensure the safety of our families and loved ones as well as people around us.

As there are still many unknown sources who maybe infected, I sincerely hope that everyone will take the initiative of downloading the TraceTogether app to reduce the chances of having exposure without knowing about it. Remember to turn on the Bluetooth function in order for this to work. Let us cooperate with one another to keep everyone safe. You are doing it not only for yourself but also for your family, friends and loved ones as well as people around you. Help yourself in order to help others when comes to contact tracing with the TraceTogether app.

As I had mentioned before some times ago, the effectiveness of isolation will be successful when each and everyone of us doing it at the SAME time. As far as the information given, we will know whether or not if we are infected within the guideline given by WHO. Therefore, 1 month will be sufficient to tell if anyone is infected. But there is also a chance where some people do not show any signs or symptoms even though they are infected. So that is also one of the reasons why we need to install the TraceTogether app just in case you are in contact with people that are not showing any symptoms. This means the cooperation among everyone of us to have this app installed for contact tracing purpose.

I sincerely hope that everyone will take it more serious about COVID-19 as not allowing it to continue spreading month after month. We the people should take responsibilities and help one another as to end this pandemic. No one else to blame for this happening except ourselves if we do not heed all the warnings. So we are the people to decide how long this pandemic will carry on therefore I sincerely urge everyone to do their parts for contact tracing as well as isolation for 1 month together at the same time.

Precautions we can take like washing hands with soap for at least 20 seconds before touching your face and as often as possible. Wear masks when going out in public to do the essentials and back home immediately. Avoid gathering with people when in public and reduce the amount of conversation to avoid spreading.

Hope to hear good news when the Circuit Breaker ends in 1st June 2020 as we all can get back to our normal routine. Just need to suck it up for 1 month to end this COVID-19. It is better than allowing it to spread month after month and harming our loved ones around us.

Be safe and take good care of yourself!
