Countless residents in public have been infected after severe lapses at local GP clinics, where GP doctors refuse to report suspect cases on government orders. These lapses however are no misdiagnosis, but based off “guidelines” issued by the Ministry of Health.
The ministry recently also rejected new testing methods like CT scan and clinical diagnosis to identify suspect cases.
Alongside shoddy guidelines at GP clinics, the corrupted Singapore dictatorship is trying to depress the number of suspect cases.
A 50-year-old Singapore taxi driver was infected with the Wuhan virus from an unknown passenger he ferried, and he continued driving for the next 11 days while coughing. The Singaporean was forced back into work because the four clinics he visited refused to diagnose him as a suspect case.
Visited GP clinics 4 times
According to the Ministry of Health, the taxi driver first started coughing on Feb 3, and sought treatment at a GP clinic on Feb 5. The GP clinic sent him away and refused to get him checked for the virus.
The Singaporean did not trust the GP doctor and visited 3 other GP clinics on Feb 7, Feb 10 and Feb 13. All 4 GP clinics refused to diagnose him as a suspect case. The last GP doctor referred him to the emergency department at the National University Hospital, and on the next day Feb 14, he was subsequently tested positive as a carrier of the deadly Wuhan virus.
The Ministry of Health did not explain the severe lapses in clinical diagnosis at Singapore GPs, even when there are more than 10 cases where a confirmed case visited GP clinics at least twice.
The official figures of confirmed cases is 72 as of yesterday, and the government recently stopped publishing the number of those in quarantine and suspect cases.
It also appears that Singapore has ran out of quarantine facilities, because government ministers are now advising suspect cases to rest at home. Minister Lawrence Wong said on Friday that the government may stop contact tracing when the number of infected gets too large.
