...“Unfortunately, given the continuing pressures on our #healthcare system, more time is needed for the situation to stabilise,” said MOH in a media release."
"SINGAPORE - The Ministry of Health (MOH) has lifted the suspension on overseas leave application for all healthcare workers."
"#Singapore - More than 4,000 children from low-income homes can now start their school day with a free bowl of cereal in the morning.
The initiative is being rolled out from October to 32 PAP Community Foundation and My First Skool pre-schools in Ang Mo Kio and Yishun.
The children will get breakfast for a year under a tie-up between Kellogg Company, The Food Bank Singapore (FBSG) and KidStart Singapore."
The #Ivermectin idiots have struck in #Singapore. One grandmother is now hospitalised for taking the drug to try to prevent getting #COVID19, at the instigation of her so-called friends from her church.
An example showing that #Singapore isn't completely immune to harmful #COVID19 disinformation stemming from religious zealots: a woman allegedly took ivermectin after some convincing from her church friends, and ended up in A&E
You think those "friends" are going to face the law of POFMA or what?
Plus there's supposedly gonna be punishment for non-compliance, involving restriction of access to services like WiFi and school emails:
Saw that NUS is apparently ramping up FET testing of #COVID19 for students and staff intending to come to campus, with a minimum rate of once per week:
Pretty bummed to hear the news of the death of Chris Ho today, didn't even know he was fighting cancer
You might've thought that with all the pushing for Singapore to live with COVID-19 that there'd be more preparation for the expected surge in cases, both mild and serious, but apparently not
What's the point of laying out expectations for treating COVID-19 as endemic if medical resources are feeling strained + implementations of procedures for mild recovery are shoddy
The pandemic nearing to 2 years means there's an entire batch of JC students who had their JC experience entirely affected by COVID-19 restrictions
Imagine those in JC who looked forward to club activities but had to move to completely online sessions and cancel multiple events (competitions, performances, outings, etc)
Something nice about this year's National Day show - also apparent in the theme song's music video - is the heavy involvement of animation
There's probably a practical benefit of having fewer live action scenes, and hence lesser need to congregate people together, but I think the quality shown so far is pretty great and casts a nice spotlight on local animation talent
I thought today's (postponed) National Day event would've just skipped the contigents since that was dealt with on 9 August
But no, the poor military personnel have to do it again today, so they essentially have to do their whole marching bits again, which practically means at least twice as much rehearsal time spent too
