    Huh? Is it really true? Or just sensationalism?

    If it's true I think it may be those hoarders who buy in bulk hoping to flip for profit.

    All we need is to think laterally and come up with a creative use of the left-over face masks e.g paint our national flag on them to wear in the National Day parade.

    Govt will have to declare a state of emergency and classified Face Mask as essential control item 1st... which in return will panic S'porean to grap more mask to hoard before its restricted. And this causes price to rise and panic among the people who can't get any...

    S'porean are supposed to be educated and logical... but it seems we are not. Looking at how much accusation was made and the riot of comments on the internet... it really sadden me that as a people, we can't seems to depend and take care of OURSELVES...

    The haze may come back even this year. In future years the possibility is high.
    Those wanting to return may be speculators who bought in bulk to resell at a profit.
