I'm still appalled by this question - Why is it only made known to MOH in August after discovery in April/May, and then to the public now (after the elections)?

Sounds likely to me. Add -> 'Lack of ownership of responsibility' [cue: pointing of blame].
It might be an example of serial disbelief that something unplanned for is happening, and being terrified of reporting it until they could categorically say they had it resolved.

Same shock that was seen when SQ006 happened ...

As for sacrifice, my nursing friends say not likely ... details are still sketchy though.
