Even the US has a food shortage because of the lockdown..

The lockdown was a terrible blunder the world made. It must be ended except for the vulnerable.
Well, we have been in lockdown here in Australia for weeks and there is no sign of any food shortage out here....

(...but then, this country is a bloody marvel! :lol: :D )
Neither is there food shortage here in Singapore. Rich countries like the US, Australia and Singapore can survive a bit longer without people working. But no nation can last forever without people working. The first to suffer will be the poor in each society. Then poverty will spread to the higher income groups.

Congratulations Apparently your CCP overlords apparently have done a good job.

Better be careful though that they don't get upset with Oz.

Gee as if you didn't start this by giving unsolicited advice. :roll: Full enough yet?

Singapore had 800 new cases of COVID-19 on Friday. But out of that bunch, only one is Singaporean. The rest came from the foreign workers community, mostly from the Indian subcontinent.

We are in lockdown because of these foreigners.

The Singapore economy has been propped up for years by the labours of those foreign workers Cass. They have been doing the work for which there are not enough Singaporians-by-birth to undertake. Often low status but necessary work that these locals would rather not do themselves. Instead of disdaining them as contemptable "disposables"; is it not high time that Singaporeans extended solidarity to them as fellow-human beings in their present day plight?

Yes, we are doing what we can to help them. But we forgot that these are third world people who need a different approach to get them to do social distancing.

For example, in Indonesia 🇮🇩, they had to employ ghosts to get them to stay at home at night.
/Indonesian villagers dress up as ghosts to spook superstitious locals into staying indoors

This is how third world people practice social distancing:

To be fair, their crowded dorms is also a major factor as to why so many FW get infected. But so is their lack of understanding.
