"Our doctors and nurses do their best for every patient. Unfortunately, despite their best efforts, not every seriously ill patient will make it through. Sadly, quite a few will succumb, just like with pneumonia. Every year more than 4,000 people die of pneumonia in Singapore, mostly elderly and with other underlying illnesses.
"Over the next few weeks and months, we will likely see the number of COVID-19 related deaths continue to go up."
Lee urged the unvaccinated elderly to get their vaccination jabs as soon as possible, while those who are already vaccinated should get their booster shots to strengthen their immunity.
Funny the papy, rich elites don't feel threatened. Because they are rich and can afford the best private healthcare in Singapore. Normal Singaporean go hospital queue up 10 hours, make appointment for two months later, illness already deteriorated.
