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.

Stop COVID-19 pandemic with your action!

Wearing masks and do social distancing when in public. Washing hands with soap frequently especially before touching your nose, eyes and mouth. Such simple and yet effective actions can help you to avoid getting the infection. It is a good practice and guess this will become a norm as we will be living in the near future.

Stop COVID-19 pandemic

Can we stop COVID-19 pandemic?

As the number of COVID-19 cases are still rising in certain countries while others are easing down on restrictions, we sincerely hope that people will not disregard the danger of this virus that is still lurking among us. It is yet to end since there is no vaccine cure is produced. So, please DO NOT be complacent as you still require to be vigilant against getting infected by it.

Our chances of survival through this ordeal depends on human’s thought.

This means that you will need to abide the simple guideline that has been imposed by Government agencies which means wearing masks in public while doing the social distancing from one another. This is very important as to safeguard yourself & others to avoid human to human transmission. Other than that, you need to remember that washing hands with soap frequently will help to prevent the virus from your hands spreading the infection if you touch your nose, mouth and eyes. That is where the virus will get into your body and you having this infection. Take all necessary precautions without being complacent about it. You need to protect yourself as well as those around you especially your loved ones.

Why is this virus still spreading even though it is made known as how it can be transmitted?

Guess the simple and logic reason is that out of 100% population around the world, we think only around 80% people are doing what is right as to prevent the spreading while the rest of the 20% simply ignore such warning of danger. It is always the case for some human beings to think that way as they might feel that it is none of their concerns since they are not infected or presume to be free from infection. While some are not getting the right source of information about it as well as some are simply resisting the restriction against their freedom. We just hope that the day will come when 100% of the population will think alike and do what is best for all human beings.

For once, please be a human being.

Just remember that we are all basically HUMANS though we are separated in the forms of races & religions. We are still the same people regardless of our skin colors. Please think as a human being and allow yourself to abide simple rules and guideline as we move forward to fight against this deadly virus. Only through the cooperation of 100% population in the world, this will be able to end without having further death occurring worldwide.

Will we be able to have 100% cooperation worldwide?

Very unlikely! Reading the news daily and we can see that there will always be resistance by a certain percentage of people to disagree of doing the right thing. They will feel that they have the right of not doing it as it is their freedom of doing so if it may cause death. This is a kind of mindset that may be in some people’s thought but we still have hope that people can change if they give themselves a little more time and thoughts! It will likely be a very slow process and as long as there is a light of hope, we will emerge victory against this virus.

What should we do?

For all who are ready for fighting against COVID-19 pandemic, should continue to be more vigilant and not complacent by doing the right thing. This simply means continuing to wear masks and social distancing in public. Washing of hands with soap as frequent as possible and not touching your eyes, nose and mouth before washing your hands. Do the right thing for yourself and others to avoid further transmission. As long as the majority of us are doing the right thing, we might be able to persuade those who are not to also follow our examples. We might have hope to influence those who are against doing the right thing. We always believe if there is a will, there is a way!

Here are simple guideline that can help to fight against COVID-19 pandemic.

Stay isolated or quarantine for 1 month at the same time for the whole country.

Washing your hands with soap often as to get rid of any virus on your hands.

Sothorn Thai amulet

Sothorn Thai amulet

Critical period happening now worldwide that is causing a pandemic crisis is the time we seek a kind of protection and blessing as to tide over it. We need to view this matter with a degree of seriousness since it had gone out of hand with the rising amount of deaths and infections. We do sincerely believe that Buddha protects those who want to be protected. Simply means that you need to take your own safety precaution and safety measures when handling the situation. Please do abide to the simple rule of social distancing and isolation whenever possible. Do this and you will keep yourself & loved ones safe.

This maybe a simple thing to do but unfortunately not everybody adhere to this rule. They just like to do whatever they want and not following the rules. It is their freedom of doing whatever they want to. It is indeed sad that we are all human beings but when comes to encounter this type of danger, some are not convinced and being uncooperative about it. How we wish that for once, everyone will act like a normal human being and do what is necessary to help one another to tide over this crisis.

Guess not!

This will only prolong further spreading of COVID-19 pandemic without even knowing when it can actually ends since looking for a vaccine cure will be a long way to come. As long as we do not have 100% cooperation from everyone in each country as to eliminate further human to human transmission then the cycle will keep continuing without its ending.

This is indeed very sad but it is the true fact in life.

Human’s mind is always a mystery to everyone as we cannot predict or control what are the thoughts going through in each person’s brain. So it does not matter whether or not there is control or warning over the current pandemic, it will be up to individual’s mind as what is the right thing to do for themselves. No one can control your thoughts as you will decide on your own. So, whether or not the crisis to be over sooner or later or even never will depend on yourself as a group.

As said, it needs to be isolation for everyone together at the same time to stop further human to human transmission.

So, can we do it together as a community of people in each country?

The answer will likely be negative as not everyone see it the same way as the others. Again, this is indeed a very sad thing even though we believe individual understands the impact and seriousness of this virus that really can KILL humans. We only can pray for individuals that they will come to the senses and be cooperative about it. All we can do is HOPE!

The question is are you fated to rent this amulet for protection?
