Covid19: Seniors Gather Daily For Freebies At Petir Road Despite Circuit Breaker

Between 7-9am between Blocks 137 and 139 Petir Road in Bukit Panjang, several older residents gather daily to collect free food in boxes and free fresh produce from a silver van (unverified license plate was provided). They have been doing this for years, even before Circuit Breaker (CB). Some have started wearing masks as of 20 April 2020, but many continue not to do so. As you can see, this can so easily become a cluster if just one person among these seniors is an asymptomatic carrier of Covid19.

Covid19: Covid-19 infecting all, except our dead hearts

I was extensively snooping around the Social Media arena to gauge the well-being of society as a whole under this Pandemic.

Surely it is not much to ask people to refrain from treating service workers like a slave or even subhuman? Their work is literally among several that is keeping the existence of this country as a solvent nation, cut them some slack for making a few mistakes among a sudden flood of demand.

Covid19: If the Govt Took Drastic Measures To Deal With Virus Earlier, We Would Still Be Having Bubble Tea

The situation must be incredibly dire to severely limit the food options of this country more than closing all dine-in eating. This just makes me more scared of our domestic situation. But it is also getting me more distrustful of the lightning party. They would argue that only under their iron hand we would go through this crisis, but the same could be said for literally anyone in any crisis with enough time and patience given by the people. And if they had taken advantage of the buffer period of January to March where they had little infection and more time to take more drastic measures, we wouldn't be in this sort of crisis.
