Dr Leong Hoe Nam: Now need at least 90% vaccination, which is technically not possible due to hardened anti-vaxxers or refusers

Leong Hoe Nam, an infectious diseases expert from Singapore's Rophi Clinic, said the Delta strain had moved the goalposts, in terms of what level of community vaccination was necessary.


"They set a target of 80 per cent, which is too low … it would have worked fine for the Alpha strain but this is Delta, a variant with easily two to three times more transmissibility," Dr Leong said.

"They now need at least 90 per cent vaccination, which is technically not possible due to hardened anti-vaxxers or refusers."

Dr Leong said 80 per cent was "not good enough because it can still burden the hospital system very significantly and there will be too many excess deaths".

"The numbers are mind-boggling, given what's possible over the next few weeks," he said.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison set a vaccination target as part of his four-step opening plan for Australia, with phase C triggered when double vaccination reached 80 per cent.

However, Australia's threshold is actually lower because it is based on the population aged over 16.

Singapore's threshold is based on the total population.

Just more rubbish and goalpost shifting.

Later 90% reached still spread like siao, say we need 95% because children cannot be vaxxed.

Then need 100%, then 80% booster, 90% booster.

It's never ending. They don't know what else to suggest other than to keep jabbing.

Stop lying to the public.
Having a higher vax percentage will not make any difference since it will also gift more daily cases as of now.
More daily cases will create more burden to the healthcare system which is already happening now AFTER we achieved 80% vax.

So, who are you kidding ?
If 90% dun make it, how about 95% ?
Stop playing with human lives.

I hope people who has fair bit of common sense should consider twice engaging/seeking medical consultancy with Dr Leong as his performance so far has been dismayed and unconvincing as a Professional Infectious Disease Expert. :o
