Hampering contact tracing effort, the Singapore government has rejected Indonesia government’s request to provide details of the infected whom is said to be imported from Indonesia.
The secretary of the Health Ministry’s Disease Control and Prevention Directorate General, Achmad Yurianto, slammed the Lee Hsien Loong dictatorship:
“We have asked for the identities of the Indonesian nationals from Singapore. They did not give us the names. How are we going to conduct the tracing in Indonesia? Singapore is adamant on not disclosing their identities.”
According to Singapore, at least 5 Indonesian nationals tested positive in Singapore hospitals – namely case 147, 152, 153, 170 and 181 in Singapore.
The Singapore Ministry of Health played dumb despite playing a goody in front of the World Health Organisation (WHO). The WHO recently praised Singapore for its anti-outbreak efforts, but it turns out to be corruption for publicity. The Chairman of the WHO taskforce on coronavirus was bribed with a director position at the National University Hospital.
There are now 212 cases in Singapore, with 12 reported yesterday. Most of the 12 contracted the virus while in Singapore, despite claims by the government that they are imported. One was infected without no known link to existing clusters.
Local transmission has been out of control since January, with confirmed cases now jumping 100% since it crossed the hundred case in late February. Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong maintained that the “situation is under control”, despite having no face mask or enough hospital facilities to test suspect cases.
