And this is why the infection increase in a lockdown. Wuhun virus is airborne. People need to buy food and supply in a lockdown. Only a few place will be open. Infected people go to the same place as healthy people in a lock down to buy food and supplies. The shop will be contaminated. The infected people will infect the healthy. These people that just got infected will contaminate their building.

You need to think it logically. Step by steps.
In the context of Singapore, what difference in availability of shops open with food and supplies is there? Got lockdown no lockdown also go to the same NTUCs and kopitiam to buy things what.

He is saying it is causing massive collateral damage. Psychologically and economically.

It may be better to let people die if the cost of lockdown is greater.
Covid is supposed to rid of selfish and reckless people who die die refuse to stay home and must go out to endanger others :vijayadmin:

If everyone in the world stay home for 3 weeks the pandemic over liao

Yes we all saw what happened last year in countries that didn't take the virus seriously or had half-hearted lockdowns

Full ICU capacities, high number of deaths, an overburdened funeral industry - like what happened in India

Staying at home obviously a worse choice compared to the above

Speaking to The Telegraph’s Planet Normal podcast, Professor Bhattacharya said:

“I do think that future historians will look back on this and say this was the single biggest public health mistake, possibly of all history in terms of the scope of the harm that it’s caused.”
Typical of some "experts ".
Say something contrary to what is being done.
And hope people will pick up and believe especially if there's no lockdown so he's not proven wrong.

Ya.
End of the day, hospitals overburdened.
Those who would have lived will die cos insufficient medical facilities
And medical staff will also get covid and some will die from it

When I speak of "building" I meant it metaphorically. Building being the country not an actual hdb block. We can have human import controls while still keeping food and goods moving.

This morning the New Zealand gdp figures prove that a country can limit human imports while still enjoying economic growth.

It's a bio weapon design to reset mankind.

If lockdown, economy suffer, people tiao lao. If don't lockdown, people suffer from infection or die.
Either way also tio checkmate. There is no way to escape.

The best any Gov can do is to try to contain the spread as much as possible while preserving the economy and livelihood of its citizens.

It's an acid test on the capability of Governments on a global scale.

In addition to above, imagine if someone (or country) experiment with another virus which will trigger severe reaction/death from those who take COVID vaccine but is otherwise harmless, then the world will be in total chaos. :s22:

So please thoroughly investigate the lab leak theory and prevent a possible second more deadly Disease X leak.
