How to end COVID-19?

It is a growing disaster as we all witness the amount of people being affected by the very dangerous pandemic that is causing lots of deaths all over the world. We believe that due to some misinformation about the danger of COVID-19 that has lead to the current situation. We all must get the right source of information so that we can all participate in doing our parts as a preventive measures to help not only yourself but others to avoid this deadly infection.

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! We understand the danger of this virus but yet it is still spreading like wild fire and this may due to the fact that not all people are receiving the right source of information about it. Please help to spread the news about the danger of COVID-19 and it does not matter who you are as the infection will definitely be very dangerous when you are in contact with it.

The basic precautions will be doing your parts of social distancing while wearing masks in public. Try not to talk when you are in public transport or in crowded places. 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.

So if you need to be in public, whenever you have contact with any surfaces of materials, try not to rub your eyes, nose and mouth without washing it with soap or using disinfectant to kill the virus. It is very important to take note of this since this deadly virus can enter your body via eyes, nose and mouth. So with frequent washing hands with soap will deter the virus from entering your body. We are the only people who can end this pandemic as long as we abide to the rules of safety precaution like social distancing, washing hands with soap frequently, wearing masks in public, etc.

That is the ideal case but in real life, we believe it is very difficult to ask every single human being to isolate themselves from going out in public for a month’s period to allow this deadly virus to end itself. 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. Please do your part as it will help yourself as well as others to avoid this very deadly virus. Think of your loved ones as you do not want it to happen to them.

Let us join forces and put an end to this COVID-19 pandemic and we can move on with our lives without fear of being infected.

Phase 2 in Singapore

COVID-19 is still very much ALIVE!

Reading today’s report on 16 June 2020, we learnt that there are already 8,118,908 cases of infections and the death rates are now 439,204 in record. We wonder why the numbers are kept increasing even though everyone understands the danger of human to human transmission and yet different countries are showing more infections and deaths than others. Why can’t we all take a break and analyze the situation based on individual country. If your country are seeing the rise of infection then people should start to look at the preventive measures for current cure like wearing masks & do social distancing from others while in public as well as washing hands with soap frequently to eliminate the chances of spreading. We, as individuals should be taking all necessary precautions to safeguard ourselves when being exposed in public as we will never know those who are unknown sources that we might be in contact with. This means that even if your country are easing down the restrictions of movement, we ourselves should maintain good personal hygiene as well as the preventive measures while in public.

What should you be doing against COVID-19?

Important to maintain your current measures of wearing masks & doing social distancing in public as well as washing hands with soap frequently. This helps to reduce the possibility of human to human transmission. Remember that you can help yourself in order to help others to avoid this spread of virus. Please be socially responsible on this matter as we humans are the only way to stop further spreading by doing the right thing. Your action will prove to be an effective way of having deterrent against the spread of virus.

Opening Phase 2 on 19 June 2020, what will be the impact?

As in Singapore, we will be going into Phase 2 after the Circuit Breaker (ended on 1st June 2020) and Phase 1 (started on 1st June 2020) which means further opening of businesses and schools based on the guideline provided by the Government. We had witnessed other countries after lifting the restrictions, they were hit by second wave of infections and causing the rise of cases thereafter. So, we can see that even though our Government has moved to Phase 2, we must still be vigilant against the spread of virus. Therefore, maintaining the current cure of wearing masks & doing social distancing while in public is a must as well as washing hands with soap frequently. This will help to reduce the chances of having more human to human transmission since we do know that there are still some unknown sources of people who are not tested and may continue to spread when you are exposed in public. No matter under whatever situation, we should always maintain the simple practice of wearing masks & social distancing when in public. Also continue to wash your hands with soap before touching your eyes, nose or mouth since that will be the entry point of the virus. As long as we are not being complacent and stay guard for our own safety as well as others, we believe that we can control the spread.

Just do your parts and be safe! Be a little Kiasu & Kiasi will save lives!

Regardless of the situation, we ourselves must continue with the preventive guideline until the vaccine cure is made available. So, no matter how much the situation has changed, we must never be complacent as it is very important to keep ourselves & others to be safe against COVID-19. The Government will base on the current trend and manage accordingly to the situation as they ease on restrictions but to us, we must never neglect the basic preventive measures that needed to be followed. At least life will be a little better with lesser restrictions and businesses can resume with safeguards. It is vital that we make appoint that no one should neglect those basic guideline that will prevent human to human transmission.

Like the saying goes: Better safe than sorry!

Once again we like to stress on these basic measures that we all should continue doing until the vaccine cure is made available to us. Be blessed with good health and take care!

Your doing results with COVID-19 infection

As of today 15 June 2020, the infection from COVID-19 pandemic has increased to 7,984,432 cases while the number of death rates also increased at 435,177 cases worldwide. From reading these news around the world, we are sad to say that different countries are using their own methods of measures to react accordingly but unfortunately it may not be the correct solution. We sincerely hope that each individual country will be taking this matter at the highest alert in order to cope with the increase of infections & deaths. Please do not be complacent as the virus will not be disappearing any sooner. You need to implement a stricter measures as to avoid any further spreading and keeping the people safer against COVID-19.

Your decision affects the spread of COVID-19 infection.

Fortunately in Singapore, we are happy with the measures taken by the Government as to control the situation of preventing further spreading in the community. As the Government is easing on the restrictions for some businesses and schools, we should all be still vigilant and take all necessary precautions like wearing masks & doing social distancing from others in public in order to avoid getting the infection. Every person in Singapore should be alert and do what is right for yourself as well as others. We know that it will be best if one can stay at home so as to eliminate the possibility of transmission while others who cannot then must take the initiative of wearing masks & social distancing. This will be the most current cure of eliminating the transmission. Of course we still need to pay attention to wash our hands with soap frequently before touching our eyes, nose or mouth since this will be the entry point of the virus. All people should be doing the right thing together as we will emerge much more stronger than ever.

Be cooperative and stand united as ONE PEOPLE!

We also read about the unhappiness of some people regarding the measures taken by Singapore Government. It is understandable of such anger but one should be thinking that there is no foolproof of measures that can satisfy everyone or work correctly until it is carried out. Of course the most ideal case will be each implementation works to our desires. Unfortunately, it may not be the case everything when measures are taken since we will not know if it is correct until it has been tested. We sincerely appreciate what the Singapore Government is trying to do with much thoughts about it before each implementation. We believe that it is easy to point fingers & putting blame when it does not work out. But we need to think that measures are needed to carry out according to the situation that seems fit at that moment but if it does not work out then we need to move on for other methods. Our Government needs to improvise accordingly after each implementation and discharge those when not working. It is just a trial & error kind of situation since no one knows what is best to work on such crisis until it has been tested.

Stand up for Singapore and we will conquer over this crisis!

We do believe we all will learn the lesson from the COVID-19 pandemic and emerge much more stronger as we face the future after COVID-19. The most basic thing about this crisis is that every single human being should be doing their parts of keeping themselves safe by wearing masks & social distancing while in public. Not forgetting to wash hands with soap frequently as it helps to prevent getting the infection when one touches the eyes, nose or mouth. It is the job of every person to help eliminating this spread of virus irregardless of what news you may be getting from the Internet. Best current cure to stay at home, wearing masks, social distancing and washing hands with soap in order to keep this virus at bay. People’s action will result in helping to reduce the amount of transmission. Please do your parts to help eliminate further human to human transmission.

Lastly, we hope people will continue to follow these guideline as to help yourself to avoid any sort of infection with COVID-19. Be blessed with good health and do take care of yourself & loved ones.
