Re: Long forest hike in Singapore

Here's a rather insane route - 4 hours alongside a 12 ft security fence. It seems Singapore has enough emergency shelters for the entire population, and some good explosion testing facilities. GPS went crazy at some point, probably signal jamming.

Re: Long forest hike in Singapore

@PNGMK maybe next Saturday?

Here's another route I found, involves some nastily overgrown paths, but you get to see some mysterious government facilities that are blocked on satellite view in Google maps.

If you have no symptoms then do not wear a mask, IMHO.
Why? Infected people can be asymptomatic for up to 14 days during which time they can be contagious. Do you want them walking around without a mask, breathing freely on children and elderly?

Re: Masks supplied free by Sg. govt. are of unknown quality

That's a good article and video that everyone should watch.

It's confounding that anyone would not wear a mask. Is the reason that is looks uncool? Or it's uncomfortable?

Re: Please wear a mask when going out

This is becoming a climate change style debate, where for every "scientific" study proving one thing, another study can be found proving the opposite. The way I see it is: 1. Most benefit from wearing a mask is when an infected person wears one. 2. I don't think anyone claims that a mask increases r...

Re: Please wear a mask when going out

@sms sure I can see that your original comment was tongue in cheek, but unfortunately others may not. It also detracted from the useful message the OP was sending. You or someone else then compounded the problem by deleting several posts that attempted to keep this thread on track. Anyway I think we...

Re: COVID-19 CB Enforcement

Just shut up and don't break the rules and you don't have to think about this.

Oh sorry, that's the moderators' job haha.

Anyway, to my limited knowledge these are false rumours.

Re: Please wear a mask when going out

Yes, they certainly should bother wearing a mask. It's very simple. If you go out, wear a mask. Don't tell people to "not bother", lives are at stake, it's more important than this petty internet squabble.

Re: Please wear a mask when going out

So if both people wear a mask, the risk is reduced by 25%. Which is much better than 0%.

So we should not tell people to "not bother". That's the part I had a problem with.

Re: Please wear a mask when going out

Thanks, but the OP"s advice is still correct - if you must go outside, please wear a mask. It's not good to divert the thread into a discussion about whether or not one should go outside. And it's even worse to delete posts that make this point.

Re: Please wear a mask when going out

Wow, this forum spreads misinformation about public health issues, and deletes posts that disagree. That might even be illegal.

It only helps if you use it in conjunction with Social Distancing. If you don't keep your distance, may as well not bother. Better yet? STAY HOME!
Not if you are infected. You may not know you are. Wear a mask for other people's sake.

Cool, if he's right, it end this month and we can all go back to normal, except toilet paper sales will be low.
