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.

Coronavirus may never go away: WHO

Of the new cases, one is a Singaporean or permanent resident.

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.

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.

=========================== Highlight above to read ==========================

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.

    • Slightly OT, but from the Straits Times article quoted by Lady Ice: A time of 2:46:57 is fast of course. Impossibly fast for a slow runner like me, but whenever I look at race results from marathons elsewhere in the world, and compare it to the times of our best runners of countries in Southeast Asia, even if one were to exclude the times of African runners from the equation, our runners here in SE Asia appear to be outclassed. I've always wondered why??? 🤔 Even in Japanese marathons, the Japanese winner's times are usually at 2:30++ on average. Are we at some disadvantage because we live in a hot climate, compared to those in temperate countries? When I mentioned to a runner from Victoria (AUS) that I usually run in temps of 27-33C, his jaw dropped...

    • SCSM T shirts are also usually sold at the pre-race expo, not just in SCSM but also other IAAF certified marathons in other parts of the world. The actual finisher shirt handed to you at the finish line is of course different though. I have nothing against those who want to buy a souvenir or presents for family and friends back home, but I strongly believe finisher shirts should be earned. Medals are usually just made of cheap metal or plastic, but to a runner, that "token" represents all the blood sweat and tears  you put into finishing the race. I don't remember where I read this, but there was this story about a guy whose wife completed her first marathon in Chicago. He told his friend: "I just bought her an expensive designer bag. That finisher certificate she got from completing the marathon probably cost the organizers a few cents to print. If she had to choose between the two of which to keep though, I know it would be that finisher's certificate & medal on our wall!" 🥴
