Singapore Today – Would you report someone breaking safe-distancing rules?

Following up with the interview, our PI Lile was invited on live radio to share with the public his thoughts on the topic. Check out the sharing here! https://www.facebook.com/CNA938/videos/930375054058820/.

Let’s all do our part to stay home as much as possible, observe good hygiene and wear a mask when we are out. We’ll get through this pandemic together! 🙂

Gratitude could help us get through the pandemic

Gratitude could help us get through the pandemic

“In the midst of the coronavirus outbreak, we are seeing many acts of kindness and even heroism. Neighbors look out for one another by buying groceries or sing songs together. When doctors, nurses, and paramedics ran out of masks, people donated or sewed new ones. 

But not all people act kindly when feeling threatened. There are those who hoard medical supplies or refuse to stay physically distant from others. Sadly, some become more selfish when they think we’re competing against each other for survival.

How can we avoid reacting in self-serving or vindictive ways during the pandemic? A new study suggests that practicing a little gratitude may be useful.”

Is it your civic duty to whistleblow?

Is it your civic duty to whistleblow?

Many countries are currently in some form of a coronavirus lockdown. Not only are borders closed, many social-distancing measures (e.g. closure of retail shops selling non-essential goods and services, orders to stay home) and rules (e.g. mandatory to wear masks when outside the house) have been implemented too.

If you see someone breaking these rules, would you report them?
