  • i think govt of world are lying about this outbreak.

  • Contagious is the keyword

  • How likely are some of them to hide vital contact information?

  • Game over. Nobody welcomes Chinese ppl anymore......

  • Minister don't forget to wear mask often... We care you too✌🙏🙏☝

  • Singapore peoples have the WILL POWER mentally to fight with COVID-19. Prevention is better than Cure, better we avoid crowded places then provide work from home options to all offices can reduce more spread among peoples in singapore.

  • 💪🏼💪🏼💔🕊🙏🏼

  • Indonesia government did not lie since the first time. That s the reason , people are so aware and care of each self. Once there is a lie.. there is always risk exist. Keep pray, faith and hope. 🙏

  • Contagious is the keyword




  • whats the benefit of this virus ? please list down below .

  • clearly, MOH had become too arrogant to believe warning from China's National Health Commission which CNA reported on 27 Jan that covid-19 can be spread during incubation period before any symptom. . China had been asking every individual to wear mask in public places long ago to minimize infections. Unfortunately, it is too late now in SG when community spread is expanding day by day.

  • Very well done documentary. The various reasons for vanishing and especially for deciding not to return have been well explained and are absolutely true. When you leave on bad terms, there sometimes is a window for making things up but as times passes rivers dig deeper and those who left have a double reason not to return, 1. their original reason 2. being blamed for leaving (as most family will not recognize they are responsible for someone leaving).

  • Abandon the forest for the sake of Big tree

  • the malay stronghold empire is in Indonesia, us Filipinos have forgotten our roots.

  • Thank you Health Minister Gan for your good work! If not for you we might be DORSCON Red already.

  • They China gonna kill us all. Spreading the plague

  • close all and stop working somedays and find out where its spreading. dont think about economy pls ☹️🙏 life is important not money . y govt dont understand

  • Typical asian parents, they hold onto their special needs children as long as possible. Even if they're not special needs, most Asian parents continues to want to hold onto their children. Good for them.

  • I pitty these kids my child is amoung them too no future at all daddy dont have job and facing facist discrimination outside here in this islands.poor kids there is no future beside becoming a waitor in a restaurant.

  • My mother might be infected she is related to the church

  • If you are a politician or minister,you should know how to balance between politics,social and SOCIAL is priority not economy(people lives at stake)

  • Singapura if lust you're kids than you now

  • virus... try the spanish flu more like it killed millions no air in the lungs means 1 thing you turn blue ....then you die a horrible death look it up the 1918 spanish flu

  • welvome to cambodia

  • hallelujah....

  • get us a new education minister pls.

  • i wonder how much of your millitary is sick ha ha ha

  • China gradually take over Vietnam n Laos .😢😢😢

  • The idea of EU to tackle coronavirus is good at this time. This should do quickly. This will be helpful for countries around the world.

  • It's a shame for the leader of the most civilized and developed country in the world to have such a thoughtless statement, the people of singapore would surely be extremely embarrassed to have such a prime minister.

  • Government do nothing,,,, only keep telling Singapore is the safe country, Singapore is the clean country,,,, sshhh,,,,

  • This virus has really caused a lot of trouble worldwide. God of China 🇨🇳 please take away this bad virus. Stoners around Singapore 🇸🇬 and Malaysia 🇲🇾 can get some good green 🌿🍁 from me.

  • anyone for new china buffet all you can eat

  • Our newly assigned DR LAWARANCE WONG. Next up and coming Health Minister.

  • Mr. Xi you dont look good have some nice bat poop soup

  • CHURCHES, SINGAPORE please educate the world with BIBLICAL CLEAN AND UNCLEAN FOOD FOUND IN LEVITICUS, DEUTERONOMY AND ISAIAH. I have many dreams for 25 years and i maybe foolish or so called crack nut but please these clean and unclean food are here more than 2000 years ago from YHWH WORDS. May GLORY BE TO THE BEGINNING. PLEASE NOT ECONOMIC GROWTH AT THIS TIME.

  • chinese commie party is godless therefore the have no souls xi has said too many worker ants

  • Diseases don't just suddenly appear in 1 location like this. That's not how science works. This is obviously manmade & was release in that city. These science criminals must be imprisoned for life. Who are they getting their orders from & why? Why would anybody create a virus like this & let it free knowing it'd kill people?!!!!!

  • bye bye xi calls it population control ha ha ha maybe 500000 chinese left ha ha ha

  • Its so unexpected of an advanced and very proud country to be so unprotective of its women. No laws or protection against battery and abuse. Its shameful.

  • Duterte cant remain in power.

  • so xi pitt bulls ate good tonight

  • I thought this outbreak will stop china from eating and killing everything that crawls on four legs and for a moment there I thought the animals in china are finally saved but it made it so much worse.

  • That church is right beside my school

  • To be true, during those period, not a lot of people worry or panic. To think of China locking down the whole of Wuhan and a few cities show only socialist country can do it. I don't US and the West could do that because there would be mass revolt as people treasure individual ism than society 's collectivism.

  • Fight until someone is koed is brutal.

  • Fake rm 35 nadal 😂

  • At last a simple explanation Thanks

  • At this time... We really have to remember the 6 pillars of Total defence. Take care of yourself and others gais💓

  • ???

  • This is a good PR stunt. But make no mistake about it, he is the person who started the policy of neglecting the little Singaporean. He is the person who ditched the SME and focused on the MNC. He is the person who say we just need to attract of a few billionaires to the country and forget about the ordinary Singaporean. He is the person who undo what his father did, trying to make Singaporean be able to compete against the best in world. Look at Singapore workforce today, ignorant and stupid!

  • Seem there no adults,lol

  • Why is it only Chinese are dying? Is this a fake to make peole fearful?

  • Ban Taiwanese forever from entering the Philippines

  • family members, members mingles with publics = spread, worker back to dormitories spreads,lol

  • Are there medical facilities at home and dormitories?

  • Lockdown London.....

  • Meanwhile... the US continues to allows flights to and from china every hour on the dot goes the last month.

  • Splitting PAP into 2 won't work. Just look at the Barisan Sosialis.

  • At this point of SG still try to control this situation is stupid and foolish. Start a lock down for 24 days for good and diagnose all those sick. 58 cases can become can 3000 in 1 month. Can SG government build a functioning hospital to cope in 10 days like China? Stop kidding yourself now and do it now rather than wait till it’s too late. Once the number explode there’s no turning back. People still commuting on train. Going cinema. Celebrating vday. Etc.

  • To family members, not knowing, the members doing theirs daily lives as normal, u see the scenario

  • 5 days m/c? Home quarantine, sorry wrong move. Should he/she have the virus, infections begin

  • wow, its getting bigger in singapore

  • China is JUST getting around to considering the healthcare workers' conditions, lack of supplies, beastly hours??? This virus has been known now for over a month, has probably been going on even longer than was disclosed.

  • And people just have to cough loudly and sneeze like nobody’s business in crowded areas in front of you 😔

    • Really need to include personal hygiene in primary school syllabus,.

  • The Spartans were right

  • now officially i hate batman.

  • Guys,Pls drink more water or take congee.Start now don't eat oily or heater food. Pass urine and don't hold for too long. WC every day .This may help your body system and temperature going down.

  • Just another common flu eolve. Soon every GP will get the vaccine.

  • We have to suspend all schools. I disagree with Ong Ye Kung, who wants to keep primary and secondary students in school. Prevention is better than cure.

  • My son is 6 years old and have autism i should keep strong and still praying he’ll be better and okay sometimes me and my husband gets tired taking care of him how much more when he get big and we are weak!God knows why this happen to us when I’m giving birth to him he struggle much in my womb almost going to die but he survive but medication affect his brain!i love so much my son there’s time Mama is almost giving up but I will take care of you as long as I can!

  • Eat fish.. Than animal flesh

  • Singapore is going to be the new hot spot of the virus. It has already spread through the city, The Economy will go into recession.

  • Waiting for an end result to see the real truth. 😾

  • Where can we find a list of PHPC?

  • Great and my guess is that Canada is allowing Japanese people into the country With out quarantine. Hang on folks it’s about to get bumpy and Trudy is in the drivers seat

  • And brainwashed weebs still Japan is some kind of heaven

  • Im a filipino who is a supporter to pres duterte, but this! Its a wrong movee. I dont know why would he do that. But its done. Goodluck to my country, i hope for the best

  • There are more than 10000 ppl died in the US because of American Flu till now. How many Singaporeans travelled there and got infected, no one knows. Once they came back they could infect other ppl, and ppl died because of it. No one knows too.

  • Why does this dude say “uh” 1 billion times

  • Some good news, latest report has shown that blood donated from recovered covid19 person is effective to help those with severe symptoms in China recover, death rate will prob go down as more blood donations is on-going.

  • How dare you be racist, now sit still and absorb your Coronavirus like a good citizen should.


  • another communist country on lock down, something they are really good at.

  • Fear mongering on the people as always. To maintain control

  • In China outbreak, the video circulating online of 3~5 DEAD kids sharing an adult body bag(Probably no size of kids) is haunting😨😨😨😨😨😨😨 Anyway, Live each day as if it's your children LAST day😊😊😊😊😊

  • I think spore 70 years ago, those generation may have still acquainted with good education. What minister enjoying his brainwashed belief system in this session was purely academic education. What prof Tommy Koh highlighted to him was the dire need of another pragmatically belief system that will bring Singapore into the future essentially the elite and future elite that brainwashed into academic supremacy. If academic education really done eternal efficiently good for its people, charity organisations will not be increasing and medical costs are not a genuine concern. And hope that the elite enjoying themselves in there are donating much of their salary, monthly to those charities organisations😁. Academic supremacy landed US in debt and many living homeless in street in US and in many other countries economic not doing as so well.

  • Love cambdia

  • When children gone home use Ultraviolet C wavelength light, be very careful Not to expose eyes or skin to light ok as uv light is dangerous UVC light kills viruses and bacteria ok

  • Noice! <3

  • Medical staff are in the frontline fighting the evil of pestilence. They have much load on their two shoulders. Let us be gracious, not to add on their risk with human abuse. Let us be responsible for ourselves in personal prevention following medical advice than abusing medical staff. Be a people of understanding that the medical staff attending to the sick will carry their work easily. Be polite, be thanking, and be encouraging.

  • She’s special, we need to protect her

  • 67.....sigh.

  • The US has no military base in the Philippines. The Chinese are stealing their fish from this poor nation. Good luck.

  • How 2 stay safe ? Don't get close to ppl & put on masks! Gosh u ppl ! What's wrong with SG government ??? Only 3.5 million citizens u get 70 cases & so many out there , meaning u have very serious community contagion , don't you know ???

  • That happen mostly in early stage, overtime it should improve

  • Wow what a mess Communist China has made of its self.
