Angry Goh Meng Seng says he got audio proof that CCS admits to his grassroots that SG is short of masks

Goh Meng Seng
24 mins ·
I have received an audio recording of Minister Chan CS candid dialogue with his grassroots.

He replied to a question on masks.

He implicitly admited that we are like HK, we do not have enough masks if we were to have everybody wearing a mask.

I did not hear his part on why he thinks mask is not needed but to me, it is really a great divide even among the medical field on whether Universal Masking is needed and whether it helps to reduce the chances of infection.

Most probably universal masking together with other hygiene practices will help to reduce infections but to what extent masking will contribute to the Defence, nobody knows exactly.

The strategy of Universal Masking is not just about how effective mask will add on to the effectiveness of Defence but rather, a practical measure based on the assessment of the situation, on both human psychology plus nature and on the nature of the virus we are dealing with.

Minister Chan rationalized that we face a logistic or supply line problems with getting masks. But we must be very careful in dealing with these issues, they are TWO different issues.

One, the need of putting on mask.

Two, the means to get supply of masks

Reason 1 of the need of putting on mask should not be compromised by the problems faced in 2, the difficulty to fulfill the needs of getting enough supply of masks.

It is a Need, not merely a Want in putting up a mask to defend against the virus.

It is DANGEROUS to compromise the need in view of safety of health just to cater to the problem of getting enough masks.

What should have been done is:

1) Advise people to wear mask if they are in a crowded place or a place with higher risk of infections, like clinics and hospitals.

2) PAP should learn from China. Just like what the Chinese authorities have done, they put up advisory in what types of mask would be sufficient for different groups of people in different places or with different roles.

3) Encourage people to make or buy their own reusable masks using appropriate materials, non-woven and best, waterproof textile.

4) PAP should not "gamble" by giving out 4 masks per household. That's a wastage. What it should have done is to set up a proper rationing system. I have touched on vending machines stationed at MRT stations which restrict purchase.

Such approaches are more responsible and appropriate in tackling BOTH the needs and problems of getting sufficient mask supplies.
