President Xi Jinping will speak today at the World Health Organization (WHO) annual conference. But he may receive a frosty welcome as 100 countries are now calling for an official investigation!

Singapore : The tiny country of 5.7 million people now has one of the
highest infection rates in Asia, according to official figures, due to outbreaks in cramped dormitories housing over 300,000 mainly South Asian low wage workers...this as well !!!

:o

Do they still allow people to congregate around Orchard Road on Sundays? Some Filipina maids in Singapore get one day a month, that's where they meet up.

China supported the call for an investigation. The story is covered in many outlets.

Just as a reminder, perhaps politics can be kept out of the thread.

Hahaha...Orchard Road is a 'dead' town after the lockdown (youtube has a few great drone videos on it!)...Re-opens 1st June (iagw) ...congregation/smoking in Orchard Road will still be a Big "NO NO" even after that!
Filipina maids will have it very tough getting to go out or even holding onto their jobs after lockdown is lifted.
(With many of their own employers facing job losses/pay cuts)
But who knows!!!

:D

Hope to get some form of compensation fm Big Brother being locked down & all!
