Time to be kiasu against COVID-19

End COVID-19 by you alone

Yes! You alone can end COVID-19. How? Make sure you do social distancing while in public with your mask on. Other than that, isolate yourself as often as you can since it will prevent human to human transmission. That’s how you alone can end it! It happens when everyone does the same thing worldwide. Isn’t that a great way to battle against this deadly COVID-19 pandemic?

Realistically, this may just be a fantasy since it is nearly impossible to gracefully ask every human being in the entire world to cooperate since we can easily witness resistance from different people who have a different opinion or outlook about it. That’s why it is so difficult to control this spreading even though we understand that when you put in your effort to do simple thing like social distancing in public or just isolating yourself to allow it to die off. It is always easier said than done since this message will never get into everyone’s head to realize how easy this can be as long as we cooperate together as one human being.

Guess no one knows when this pandemic will end or how long will it lasts. But fortunately, we as one people can put a stop to prevent it from further human to human spreading as long as we stick to the rules of social distancing and isolation. We can presume it can take as long as one month the virus can remain on a human being and by cutting off any human contact, it will no longer be able to transmit human to human. This way of doing, we might be able to slowly end this pandemic. So, it requires the cooperation of every single soul in the entire world to do it together and at the same time. Yes! It has to be at the SAME time together so it will no longer be able to spread human to human.

Then those who are being infected to be quarantine and allowing them to recover from it. This will be one of the ways we can end COVID-19 pandemic! But then, it is not as easy as said since it will be hard as not all countries will abide to doing this due to their concerns of economy impact and other reasons they are facing. So, each country has to control their own crisis as how they can control and putting an end to it. As we see it, it is much better when every single country in the world creates the One Month’s battle plan against the deadly virus so it will synchronize with the entire world to carry out this task. Then we will see the best result of controlling this pandemic. Again, this maybe an impossible task since it is hard to get every country to cooperate in this matter. That will simply means we have to look forward towards a vaccine cure which will not be any sooner since not every country is cooperative about sharing their research about it.

We really hope that this time the world leaders will learn the importance of full cooperation and sharing as to fight against this very dangerous pandemic. With the world’s cooperation on research and sharing data, it will be sooner to get the vaccine cure. But we wonder if the vaccine cure will become a reality? Why? Researchers might simply put an end when there is no more funding or the virus spreading slow down and they do not see further need of doing so. There are many reasons for not producing the vaccine cure when situation changes. But we will all still be facing the danger of COVID-19 pandemic as long as there is no vaccine cure. Lifestyle and routine will be changed for the entire world. It will no longer be the same where you can freely roam the world without having fear of this virus that maybe around you at all times.

What can we do about it? Guess we only can continue taking preventive measures and precautions when we are in public. Social distancing and isolation will still be the best cure option at the moment. Here are some of the guidelines which will be appropriate to use as to help yourself against getting infected.

  1. Washing your hands with soap often as to get rid of it on your hands.
  2. Avoid touching your face like nose, mouth & eyes unless you have just washed your hands.
  3. Isolation or quarantine together as a country at the same time to eliminate further spreading from human to human.
  4. Wear masks if need to be in public and keep social distancing from others to avoid being infected.
  5. If you have fever, cough and difficulty in breathing, please wear mask before consulting a doctor.
  6. If need to cough or sneeze, use a tissue paper or your elbow to conceal it.
  7. Download the contact tracing app in Singapore to eliminate unknown sources who maybe infected with COVID-19.

Help to keep people around you and your loved ones to be safe. Let us be just humans and not to point fingers and putting blame on each other even though we are from different races or cultures. Bottom line – we are humans! Respect each other and we can conquer this pandemic together!

COVID-19 pandemic is over?

Though we are witnessing countries are easing on the lock down but from what we understand, it is still far from over. Why? After reading much news from all over the world, we understand that not all the countries are carrying out vigorous testing for the COVID-19 for suspected patients. This is indeed a sad thing to hear about since the main danger of this coronavirus is human to human transmission. If not carrying out tests in a timing measures, then there will be a tendency of having many unknown infected sources which will end up infecting more people. We simply hope that all countries should step up and do all that is necessary for the sake of mankind.

Yes, we understand that there are needs to open up businesses and be back to our normal lifestyle but if this is not taken care in a proper manner, we all will likely be hit with a second or even third wave of COVID-19. As long as this is not under control, it will be never ending since transmission will continue from human to human and the cycle will never stop. So, even if the Government is easing on restriction, we as one people should not be complacent and take all necessary preventive measures as to safeguard ourselves and loved ones. Things might not be the same as before but as long as the vaccine cure is still not available, we all have to do our parts to protect ourselves and loved ones as well as those around you. Here are things you can do as to help others and yourself to be safe.

  1. Washing your hands with soap often as to get rid of it on your hands.
  2. Avoid touching your face like nose, mouth & eyes unless you have just washed your hands.
  3. Isolation or quarantine together as a country at the same time to eliminate further spreading from human to human.
  4. Wear masks if need to be in public and keep social distancing from others to avoid being infected.
  5. If you have fever, cough and difficulty in breathing, please wear mask before consulting a doctor.
  6. If need to cough or sneeze, use a tissue paper or your elbow to conceal it.
  7. Download the contact tracing app in Singapore to eliminate unknown sources who maybe infected with COVID-19.

We should be aware that when we are vigilant, it will be much safer for those people around you as well as for those you loved to be safe as well. We do know that some countries are being hit with the second wave of COVID-19 after easing down on restrictions. So that is the lesson we need to learn from so that we will not be caught off guard and having increase of infection.

We believe that our Singapore Government is doing whatever they can as to slowly easing the control of restrictions but it will be up to us not to be complacent and continue to be more vigilant instead. Things will get better as long as we do our parts to keep it that way. This is what we believe that every action we take will have a reaction as a result. Whether or not we Singaporeans can maintain a healthy lifestyle and avoid further increase of infections will be dependent on ourselves to maintain our vigilant. This is a battle that can only be won when we cooperate with one another to keep ourselves safe from COVID-19. Let us do our parts and prevent further human to human transmission.

One day this will end but meantime, we just need to keep cooperating and be vigilant until the vaccine cure is out. So, the current cure for COVID-19 is social distancing and isolation as far as possible. If need to go out, please remember to wear masks and stay apart from others in public. Help yourself as you can help others to be safe. Keep up the good work everyone!
