    this is a pathetic answer how can we let this kind of minster to protect us Singaporean, said that people who came back to Singapore from China to stay home for 14-day quarantine and implying to have a strict home quarantine which going out is not allowed but people visiting is alright and will be monitor by what phone tracking? don't we have a solution at all why not use a building to quarantine people who have gone to China and which will help to prevent from getting out or people getting in and best what about using the Jail Tag Tracker to track where these people are if they are home quarantine? this is to prove Singapore government is not prepared for this kind of outbreak after hearing what they said I have lost hope on their capability of handling the situation. Prepare for more cases coming to Singapore you know it and it happening. the word "I don't think" from a minster is rather show how they know they cant take care of it

    Being quarantined is enforced, but having visitors is "discouraged", but not enforced. doesn't that defeat the purpose of quarantine? And what about the family members that live with them? are they forced to stay home too? Also, there's a good chance one of them will be stubborn enough to violate the quarantine rule. sure they will be punished if caught but what if they are actually infected? once they spread the virus in public there's no going back... can't they stay in a secured/guarded apartment just like those previously quarantined before? I know it costs money but at this point in time, you can't put a price on risk right now.

    Wonder why food handlers don't wear masks? Plenty of masks available, don't panic. Your honorable words are trusted. Where to buy.? Most pharmacies don't have. Any lists of shops to buy? Don't wear masks if you are not sick. But what happens when someone else is sick, knowingly or not knowing with symptoms will to talk to you or cough face to face near you, no time to avoid. Also good example of not %afraid of virus, leaders of Singapore, i didnt see wearing masks. Ignorant or trying to calm the people. Immune? Even President Xi wore 1. and assembly postpone.

    Questions should be asked seriously about the people on Diamond Princess and how they continue to get infected. If they are being confined to their cabins then they should not be infected. unless the virus is moving through the air-conditioning system via an aerosol. If so then the Cruise ship is a giant petri dish. Doctors are the worst spreaders of viruses ... they can't acknowledge and diagnose when they are ill themselves.

    Ocean engineering materials is a tough dilemma. Sea water is basically 'life paste', where if you stick something in the ocean, stuff will grow on it, and often into it. Then there's the corrosion of sea water itself, especially at the oxygenated 'lapping' level. Things get ugly quickly when you stick them in the ocean, unless it's coated in something toxic. It's fine to put on virtual reality goggles and have hope, perhaps, but there's a massive lack of practicality without a materials and maintenance discussion. It's the difference between an investment scam and an investment, or waste versus progress.
