    We don't paid top $ to our health minister for him to be an alarmist.

    It's best he behaves like MERS is something never happens and will not happen here.

    It's supposed to be profound, intellectually challenging and out-of-the-box.

    Let's see, if he shuts down Singapore, forces any with potential MERS to visit TTSH, we will see another set of whiners..
    Do you really want to see the same measures instituted during SARS right now ?
    Did you live through the horrors, fears and death? It was a terrible time, and it's not easy for a leader to decide what's best.
    Kudos to the last health minister for making the call to clamp down, but it really disrupts lives and it's a damned if you do, and damned if you don't situation bro..

    Be vigilant, it's up to the individual to take our own precautions too, instead of relying on and blaming the government for everything.

    Yes, his cure is a bullet to the head. Cures the population from the disease. It also helps against diverging opinions and other misaligned thoughts.

    Maybe a good idea to stay away from Kopitiam for a few days.

    I kind of suspect that the MERS may already had in SG. The gahment might contained it as not to panic the citizens.

    Think of it. It hit Msia last year April. Why we dont hv any single case and there are so many msians moving across our boder.

    Because unlike SARS... MERS may not be airborne yet

    But I doubt the authorities will 'Cover Up' something like this... you can't quarantin large amount of people who has contect with patient 'Zero' without people noticing... look at Bangkok, Thailand... one middle eastern patient kena... over 175 is exposed amd is quarantined... you think if same thing happened here... authority could do the sa me to over 100 people and no one would said anything... ??

    Cover up is not on the cards, it will only make things worse.
    And I can tell you with some certainty that it's not here ... yet...

    Most nation also cannot "quarantine people by train load"... and we are talking about a cover up of about over a 100 person and no one is talking about it... NOT, do WE, have the will, space or money to do so...

    MERS will come to our shore just like gonorrhea, syphilis, chlamydia etc. brought by the pleasure seekers and sinners.

    Keep your mind and body healthy and pure and you'll be safe guys.
