Re: How long do you think COVID19 will last

The asymptomatic spread is the real PITA. Most viruses have a short sub clinical period and sick people can be isolated or treated quickly.

Suspect you’ll see greater chance if you actually live in Singapore.

Makes zero difference if you work outside, how Long do you actually stay when you visit anyway?

Re: Will frequent business trips affect one's PR approval rate?

I traveled near 50% when I obtained PR 4 years ago.
