Kiasu and kiasi about COVID-19 pandemic

Be Kiasu to avoid the infection of COVID-19 plus Kiasi about it!

As we understand that Singapore Circuit Breaker will end on 1st June 2020 and prepare for some businesses to be operational. We simply hope that we will have the mentality of doing the right thing as we move forward to see businesses opening up gradually. Important thing we must be in mind is continuing to be vigilant and not be complacent as the danger of getting infected is still high since there are unknown cases that have yet to be traced. We understand the need of businesses to be operational but precautions are still needed as we definitely do not want to see another wave of COVID-19 spreading.

It is the right time to be a little KIASU and also KIASI kind of approach since we really do not want to be the victim of this infection.

Sometimes we question ourselves about why people still not taking it seriously though there has been lots of news talking about the effect of spreading COVID-19 via human to human contact. Maybe some simply do not bother about it while others just want to act out as defiance! As we see it, we should give much thoughts of people around us that we must not allow it to spread and harm them. Just be HUMAN again please! You may not care about yourself when you resist all rules but please try not to harm others with your action. Others may just want to be safe and with your rash action might put others in danger. A little kind thought with the right action can help others in a long way. We cannot tell who are those unknown cases of having the virus but as long as everyone keep in mind of the safety aspect and doing the right thing then we can avoid others from getting the infection. It is hard to have 100% cooperation but every bit counts from people like you and us. Help yourself as you can expect others to help you in return.

Learn and know what to expect and prevent it from happening!

Getting the report daily from GOV.SG about the cases happening in Singapore, it is comforting to know that we are reduced to 1% of the unknown cases. But it is also kind of worrying since we do not know the 1% source of transmission. Therefore, we hope that all people who are staying in Singapore should be downloading the TraceTogether app that will allow 100% contact tracing of individual who is infected and those around the same location. At least it helps to tell us if we are exposed with someone having the infection. Please be human again as we are all the same human being regardless of races or religions.
