SARS, You get it, you know it. Constant high fever.

COVID 19 is asymmetric spread...those who don't think they have it, carry it around for 2 weeks, infect everybody.. last stage when they get it, they technically only has 2 weeks of life remained if left untreated.

 

Yes, Covid-19 is spread easily, because no one including yourself really know if you already have it or no? The only way is ALL gets tested and  ALL get vaccinated.

I do see ppl jogging with masks on, though they are in minority.

So, you’re getting into running during a pandemic. Here’s what you need to know.

Quote

Should you wear a mask when you run?...The World Health Organization reports that the virus that causes covid-19 can be spread when an infected person coughs or sneezes, sending droplets into the air that eventually fall to the ground...smaller particles containing the virus can remain suspended in the air....travel farther than just six feet...10 feet is safer...concern that with every labored breath (runners who have the virus release infectious particles into the air around them)....recommended wearing a a face mask of tightly woven fabric....

Personal experience: if no wear mask on Exercise (Run), safe distancing of 3 metres (10 feet), wear mask immediately when not in Exercise (Run)...

Seen many using Exercise (Brisk Walk/Jog) for not having to wear mask, as long as keep safe distancing of 3 meters (10 feet), acceptable, but many really don't, just want to meet up or gather as social group like family actually for Exercise, and not Exercise Alone.

Seen even 3 generation members, Outdoor at Park "Exercise" and no wear mask and take Selfies, maybe just for a Family Reunion of different households. As long as stay 3 metres away from them, and what they do for "Exercise" is their personal social distancing, safe distaince and social responsibility.

Wear mask (Exercise) is to protect others and self (minority) is great, and majority that no wear mask (Exercise) is to make sure safe distancing of 3 meters (10 feet)...and wear mask always after Exercise...during CB SG Covid 19...and may have to after that...just wait for updates...restrictive outbreak measures rules.

It's time for another episode of The Amazing COVID-19 Barchart Race. :crazysmile:

I'm dropping Hong Kong, Taiwan and Australia and have added India, Bangladesh and Pakistan. Those are the 3 countries with the highest number of cases in Asia (excluding China and the Middle Eastern countries) 

I decided to have a little fun and added some additional elements to the video. Pls don't take it too seriously. I know the pandemic is deadly serious and no laughing matter. It's a race that really no country want to win (as far as the no of infection cases goes). 

Anyway, hope you guys enjoy the video. 

And here is another video that I put together for the Top 10 Countries with COVID-19 Deaths. It's crazy that China is not even in the Top 10. And I think they have not been for at least a month now.

Expected Safra Run to be cancelled, but still feel disappointed somehow. Last year didn't have, this year also. A 2 years vacuum.

Many events skipped a year or two and then quietly retired. 

eg. Pocari Sweat Run, Energizer Night Run, Jurong Lake Run, Newton Challenge.

Hopefully, AHM don't follow in their footstep.

I think AHM will continue because it is for NS guys. No worries

Covid-19: Virtual 1km run aims to get public to show support for frontliners
(info - https://www.todayonline.com/singapore/covid-19-virtual-1km-run-aims-get-public-show-support-frontliners)

I think food/gift donations to frontliners are what they need most. Best if it is monetary or pay raises of course.

This and other activity like mass singing HOME to show appreciation do nothing to help frontliners really.

The best thing I read about all these hand-clapping, song singing to show appreciation for the frontliners is NSFW.

So I will try my best to keep it out of sight unless you really want to read it. But of cos, having tease it now, of cos you will want to read it! :crazysmile:

=========================== Highlight below to read ==========================

These activities are basically masturbation; it feels good for the person doing it and does absolutely nothing for the people they're thinking of.

COVID-19: Phase two of post-circuit breaker reopening could begin before end-June, says Lawrence Wong

Coming soon to June 1...CB
 
CB extension...
 
Phase 1: Safe Reopening

From June 2, you can receive two visitors per day from your immediate family (children or grandparents). Some businesses are allowed to reopen with Safe Management measures in place and children can go back to school and student care centres.

Phase 2: Safe Transition

After a few weeks of Phase 1, the government will decide if it's safe for us to move to Phase 2 where more of our regular activities can resume. This is the phase most of us are looking forward to – but it's likely that Phase 2 will be rolled out over a couple of months. Activities include small group gatherings, dining in at F&B services, opening retail outlets, gyms and fitness studios. Sports, recreation and outdoor facilities like the stadiums can also reopen.

Phase 3: Safe Nation

If the situation remains stable after the completion of Phase 2, Singapore will enter Phase 3 and stay here until an effective vaccine or treatment for Covid-19 is found. During Phase 3, medium-sized gatherings can resume, and spas, massages, cinemas, theatres, bars, pubs and nightclubs are allowed to reopen.

    • Uncle - Aunty make one for you that I intend to do on the 6th Dec: 26 miles in 24 -26 hours. If 24 hours - do 3 miles for the first hour and then one mile an hour thereafter. - For each mile you must plant a tree or a shrub of some sort to highlight the importance of vegetation in our world for our lungs and to negate the effects of pollution - During each mile - you can litter pick to clean the mile. - Thereafter - repair something, repurpose something, renew something.... ya know Rethink, Reduce, Reuse, Repair, Repurpose Hope more of you will join me for this special event for our finale for the Covid year  
    • just to get consensus from all: 1) are you excited, so-so, or disappointed by the SCSM 2020 Grand Finale Week announcement? 2) what have you sign-up for and are you going to pay for the Challenge Bundle? to start off, uncle is very disappointed there is no FM. uncle signs up 21KM + 10KM [SCSM Grand Finale VR Double Up Challenge] just for good Stay Strong, Stay Healthy Fun... Not paying for this one... The Weekly SCSM Virtual Club VR and Challenge Events have kept uncle prepared and ready for any Ultra Distance VR events... uncle going for this one tommorrow...LAST one of the WMM 2020 Virtual Race... "Run for Medal (Marathon) " - There is no time limit. However, runners must complete the full 26.2-mile distance in a single run activity during one calendar day and upload the activity to Strava.  Because of Covid-19 Pandemic when ALL Races have been cancelled, and there is no Local Virtual Races (Challenges) that has exceeded beyond Half-marathon distance, the closest being 2020 STVR 17.5KM which ended on 23 Oct. Besides, SCSM Virtual Club which started 10 weeks ago with VR (weekends) and Challenges (weekday), these sessions are not FM-ready. Note: Kid's Virtual Races also completed (1.5KM and 3KM) You need at least 2 months of Preparation and Progressive Runs both in Distance and Duration. Last week VR 9 Double-Up Challenge...we completed 13KM + 8KM = 21KM VR Double-up with 2 Sessions. Perhaps, uncle provides this info...how then should we prepare for Marathon Virtual Race... Participant can opt for 50% discount on online Coaching Essentials to prepare for Marathon...  Enough said, uncle better prepare for tomorrow with the FM Virtual Run with Medal which uncle wants for 2020...have a great weekend! 😃
    • SCSM VR Competition Race Honorably....   https://oly-one-product.s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/SCSM/SCSM+VR+Race+Rules+Final.pdf  
    • Hey Thanks @RaijinFJ - really excellent really busy. Just making sure the virtual events round the world have my input LOL..... so have been talking to the organisers and added my 2 cents to how the virtualisations can be made better. Looking forward to see how the AR will work for SCSM.  At the same time as working am trying to circumvent the potential destruction of the Clementi Forest in Singapore to have greater consideration (https://mothership.sg/2020/10/clementi-forest/) Understand about the towns in the forest but destroying an entire forest to "create" a forest will mean the death of millions of animal lives in that section of untouched forest in Singapore and a loss of species. Am pretty upset that the govt has not protected it. Otherwise how can we say to Brazil and Indonesia they must protect their forests? Singapore says they will plant a million trees, but planting a million trees and destroying a forest.... yah yah I know need housing for an expanding population but there are other places.....like on the Green Corridor as they have already destroyed parts of the forest there to make it look more like a cultivated garden. Also have got involved with local government in the UK to develop proper cycling and walking infrastructure. So have learned a lot. Have been trying to share that knowledge with LTA that they need to make some tweaks to their plans and ensure they consider that bicycles should be treated as vehicles and not as pedestrians otherwise those shiny cycling paths are useless if cyclist have to stop at every minor road as well as try to maneuver right angle paths!  Already tested some out last year. Needs more tweaking.  Then of course there is leading a couple of eco-groups within the community. Haize - need to do less and get more people taking responsibility. Let's run SCSM  
    • In fact if you want a Full Marathon, VR 10, VR 11, VR 12, VR 13 may be FM Combination... VR 10 (this Weekend) longest is 15KM, VR 11 - 13, should be a 10KM, 16 or 17 or 18KM and 21KM.. SCSM VR Collector's Medal Series ($99) looks more attractive than the SCSM Grand Finale VR Single ($60) and Double Up ($65).
