The goverment should fix the place where the migrant workers is working. They are living in a place there is alot of bacterias n everything. That is the reason why alot of the new cases of covid-19 come from dormitories

Why can’t the govt test every residents in SG? We have a population of 5.8 million. They can test by district and isolate those who are infected from those who are healthy. This would prevent further community spreading. Without rigorous testing, we are dealing with the unknown unknowns.

I still see foreign workers going back to dormitory at Changi lodge when i took a bus 35 to Changi Alps Ave early in the morning. This workers must be working night shift on essential jobs like shipyards, MRT repairs services or road repairs. What's this government thinking? If all dormitories are shut down. Why is there still foreign workers going in and out? I feel really unsafe when they boarded the bus. Maybe they are tested negative by the task force and allowed to travel for work. But why are they still allow to go back to a isolation dormitory to stay?

Editor rushes in

Editor: “Boss, Another 1,000 cases today with 891 Residents infected!”

Boss: “Damn, doesn’t matter just do what we normally do, fudge the numbers and say their foreign workers, we need to tickle the public’s balls a little.”

Really don’t mind staying home. But we need the truth regarding the origins of test kits and what will happened after this issue has been resolved.

Spreading rumours and injecting fear by ignorant people, both citizens and foreigners and the press must be curbed…Let our leaders do their job without harrassment. It is getting popular to spread rumours with no facts by members of public. Fake news reporting is terrible..

It is quite weird to compare testing in dormitories and testing the entire population. But nvm, it just show that they are still testing the fw in dormitories.

Most of the local cases come a welfare home, so it mean that the community spreading is dying down. So please just stay at home.

Hope that the local cases will drop to single digit tommorow!

No point on keep testing on the migrant worker while the people in the community are not tested. Once the circuit breaker end, there will large pool of people going back, how do we make sure they are safe from the virus since there are cases of people with covid 19 with no sympthoms. There is still a chance the virus will spread once the circuit breaker ended and history will repeat.

I am glad to see both South Korea and Singapore as great examples in combatting this COVID-19 virus. Just need to keep testing and testing nonstop. I have hope that both South Korea and Singapore will get through this crisis together!

Yeah, even if you test all also can have false positive/negatives.
