Singapore is experiencing its worst pandemic wave since the start of the pandemic, reporting around 2000-3000 cases a day. And that’s because it abandoned the “zero-covid” strategy, saying it’s not feasible in a long-term.
To support its new “living with COVID” strategy, Singapore needs to get more people vaccinated and reduce the strain on the healthcare system. Around 90 percent of Singaporeans are fully vaccinated – but that number has to get even higher to reduce the strain on the healthcare system.
I had some pretty toxic feelings on Sept. 1. Hundreds of anti-vaxxers were gathered in all their lack of glory on the street outside the hospital where I work, repeating this stunt on Sept. 13 at hospitals across Canada. My co-workers and I were incredulous. Their presence outside our facilities was too callous to be real.
How arrogant, how tone deaf would it have been of me if I’d urged my exhausted colleagues to meet them with “kindness?” And who believes that people intent on screaming outside a children’s hospital would receive directions from Jesus himself if he happened to be in the neighbourhood?
