We we now have 5 cases of H1N1 in Singapore.
It's kinda surreal isn't it? I think we should worry...oh no, we shouldn't worry. It's life as per normal...oh no, it cannot be normal, we must be careful. Is it a pandemic? Not a pandemic? Or a qualified pandemic? Is the sky falling? Who knows anymore?
I think the regulatory authorities, and health ministries, including the WHO and our own MOH have kinda painted themselves into a corner, don't you think? Is it ever going to get better? Obviously not, because the number of cases will just increase until the virus loses steam. Maybe then we can live outside our artificially constructed bubble. What if it doesn't? Well, I think we got to get used to living in our bubble, cos the WHO too 'paiseh' to admit they got it wrong.
I wonder if anyone is keeping track of the economic costs of maintaining this charade?
