    WHO and CCP worked togheter to hide the truth, is the reason today more 200,000 people died, the CCP reputation is above human lifes and chinese are ok with this, seem like so many years of marxism got the nation of china empty of real meanings in life, the reason why even black people are seen as sick and filthy in China in this day and age… China must pay ! China will pay some way or another

    So many workers in a single room. I hope Singapore take actions to make the immigrant workers' environment better.

    Like in any other country….Singaporean 1st.
    If foreign workers felt discriminated…best go back to their home country.

    Really to end the news with "…it remains to be seen if its too little too late…" is disappointing. Not only are human lives involved it also is a disservice to the many working hard to get through this in the city.

    This new generation of Singapore government officials are not as competent or smart as their predecessors.

    South Korea also had a huge spike in cases a couple of months ago, but has since then contained the spread of the virus. It may take a while, but given the efficacy of the Singaporean government, Singapore should have little problem overcoming this mistake. Looking forward, hopefully they will pay more attention to their migrant workers' plight next time.

    Let Singapore show America how a pandemic is handled. One misstep doesn't mean you should give up testing and start blaming others for your own incompetence.

    Singapore government are giving free medical treatment to all the infected migrant workers and make sure their employee pay the salary on time. They also pay for their meals 3 time a day during these difficult time. The bad dormitory issues are also responsible of the company that hired the workers.

    When the Singapore students were repatriated from all over the world, the first thing they did was to go to the pubs etc. even though they are under quarantine. They also infected their maids. These maids have foreign workers boyfriends whom they meet every weekend and also infected them. Those infected also have other maids as girlfriends. The spread continued like wildfire!

    Fort Detrick -> Deaths from vaping -> US soy sauce soldiers participation at Military World Games in Wuhan -> First coronavirus patient reported

    1) Fort Detrick Deadly Germ Research Is Shut Down at Army Lab Over Safety Concerns Problems with disposal of dangerous materials led the government to suspend research at the military’s leading biodefense center. Safety concerns at a prominent military germ lab have led the government to shut down research involving dangerous microbes like the Ebola virus. “Research is currently on hold,” the United States Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases, in Fort Detrick, Md., said in a statement on Friday. The shutdown is likely to last months, Caree Vander Linden, a spokeswoman, said in an interview.

    2) Doctors are treating a disease of unknown origin " So far, the patients have a few things in common, according to the CDC. They suffered from respiratory symptoms, including coughing, shortness of breath, chest pain, and difficulty breathing. Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fatigue, abdominal pain, fever, and weight loss were also common symptoms. " "On lung X-rays, the lungs appear to be inflamed, as if a PATHOGEN infected them. But when doctors have tried to find a common bacterial or viral source of the disease, they’ve failed to turn anything up. Again, patients only have vaping in common, but no specific products or substances link all the cases together. "

    3) Oct 2019, Military World Games in Wuhan, China. 400+ US athletes and personnel participated. US soy sauce soliders did not even win a single gold medal and was ranked 35th in the medal tally. The Chinese were surprised and suspicious at such a lacklustre performance from the US team.

    4) Two weeks later on November 17, China reported the first patient who was sick with COVID-19. They did not know that he had the coronavirus at that time. First case of someone in China suffering from Covid-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, was traced back to November 17, according to government data seen by the South China Morning Post.

    Of the first nine cases to be reported in November – four men and five women – none has been confirmed as being “patient zero”. What were the violations at Fort Detrick which got them shut down by the CDC ? "Another departure was that the military laboratory systematically failed to implement biosafety and containment procedures. In one instance, personnel DELIBERATELY PROPPED OPEN the door to the autoclave room while the employee removed BIOHAZARD waste. "This deviation increases the risk of contaminated air from room [redacted] escaping and being drawn into the autoclave room, where individuals DO NOT WEAR RESPIRATORY PROTECTION," according to the report. The report includes a large section redacted to protect against the release of a report or inspection of a specific registered person that would endanger public health or safety. Propping the door open was an "incident," Cox said, not one of the breaches. It was noted by the CDC during one of its inspections. The person who propped the door open did not have mal intent, he said. "They weren't doing it to openly flout the rules," Cox said. "They were doing it for a reason that they thought was reasonable. But I mean, it still was not in compliance with [standard operating procedures]." There were other incidents like the door propping that led the CDC to determine there was the systematic failure, he said."

    They are not really Singaporean per se, so they are not looked after. Then again they still can spread it to other Singaporeans.

    What are you even trying to achieve here at this point….
    Pulling people's attention from Chinese Communist party and criticize others? Pathetic.
    If you really want to control the pandemic, learn from your evolved, democratic version of China, the Singapore and Taiwan.
