Mozzie Wipeout


 

Daily Dose: Mozzie Wipeout

We are on Day 9 without local transmission. This is great news. Another 5 more days and we will pass the incubation period for Covid19 ( 14 Days). Would this mean that the virus is eradicated?

On that note, there are deadlier killers out there. Dengue has officially claimed more lives than Covid19 in Singapore (29 vs 28). While Covid19 might be the headline for 2020, in Singapore, it is not the number 1 killer. Nonetheless, the impact of Covid19 can be felt throughout with shops closing down, people losing jobs and disruption to our normal way of life. Let's not be dishearted. With vaccines on the horizon. 2021 might just signal a brand new start for Singapore and the world.

3) Free 3D Masks for Singapore Residents from Nov 30 to Dec 13

Each Singapore Resident will be issued one mask kit containing 2 black reusable masks plus additional filters. Is this a signal for Phase 3?

An announcement will be on 26 Nov for mask collections. By Nov 26, if we were to continue to have zero cases, that would be Day 16.
