A Brand New Day




So GE2020 has come and gone. 

The dust settled, the euphoria of wins soaked in, animosity abated. Views on politics are normally polarising and this election had shown some ugly sides as a result of having different political views. 

At the end of the day, regardless of your stance and beliefs, we have to remember that we are Singaporeans First.  Let's put our difference aside and look forward to nation-building together.  For us, it will be back to normal transmission.

Politics per se will be on the backburner. We are not here to discuss politicians or parties. After all, this IS a Family Lifestyle Page. Rest assured, we will not shy away from policies that will affect you and us. If you had been following us for the past few months, you would know our style. We do not choose sides but Singapore first.



1) 170 new cases confirmed
145 cases in dorms
24 community ( 7 Singaporeans, 6 Work Pass Holders, 11 Work Permit Holders)
1 imported 

After the election, it is back to refocus on the main issue at hand, Covid19. Community cases are back to 24. This is the 3rd time in a week with cases rising above 20. The total number of cases in community over 1 week is now above 100 at 106



2) Work Permit and Work Pass cases outside dorms continue to rise
The majority of the community cases came from this group. Some had asked what is the difference between Work Pass and Work Permit.
The details can be found on MOM website

A point to note. Not all of this group was issued SHN during the Circuit Breaker period. For those in the construction sector, those staying outside the dorms had to serve notice from 20 Apr to 18 May. Other sectors were not issued a similar notice. Given the daily occurrence of Covid19 in this group, there is a possibility that spread has occurred beyond the construction sector. 

It may be prudent to consider mass testing on this group, especially on those who are staying on communal lodging with other work permit holders from different sectors.  Given the daily occurrence, it will not be surprising to find more cases within this group.

3) Tangs and Bedok South Food Center among locations visited by infectious Covid19 cases.

With higher number of cases, this list will only grow longer. Do note it is more for those who had been in the affected area during the period stated. It is not a list for you to avoid these places.

GE is over but that does not mean we cannot learn a thing or two from it

Hawker Centers, Coffeeshops, blank cheques are the reasons cited.
