Agree with him.
Lets keep f&b on hold until regular testing becomes mandated.
If patrons or staff no regular testing, then f&b should not be allowed to operate.

Lets see what happen to f&b and pappy votes.
Lets go!

Just once and for all, do a full CB and weed out all cases man. Now drag and drag no ending. F&B and retailers are suffering because of these dragging thing.

Yes just do a decisive whole island Cb and mandatory full swab to pin point all the cases out then open and close and repeat this whole **** again like an endless loopzzzz…. Can set up so many vaccine station might as well set up swab stations instead

Dr Leong Hoe Nam, an infectious diseases specialist at Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital, said the spread of Covid-19 in an open-air environment like the Bukit Merah hawker centre is alarming.

"What the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention and we have been saying is that ventilation helps (reduce the spread of Covid-19). In terms of outdoor dining and preparation of food, it doesn't get better than a hawker centre - but yet we succumbed to many cases," he noted.

This means that there could be risks if Singapore returns fully to dining in, including in air-conditioned settings, he said.

Dr Leong believes dining in may have to be put on hold unless the country is prepared to take drastic, large-scale measures, such as requiring all residents to go through antigen testing once every few days, or setting up antigen testing and Covid-19 breathalyser systems at all malls and food centres.

in the same article, got another sexpert gives opposite opinion

But Professor Paul Tambyah, president of the Asia-Pacific Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infection, believes that Singapore should continue with its reopening plans.

"The numbers remain low and the rationale for lockdowns has always been to protect the healthcare system. The healthcare system in Singapore is well protected and the high rate of vaccination has ensured that the number of ill patients remains relatively low despite the large number of elderly cleaners infected," he said.
