Pattaya, Thailand- On Thursday, September 9th, 2021, members of the Rotary Club of Pattaya, led by 2021-2022 Club President Niels Colov, donated several PAPR devices (Powered air-purifying respirators) to the hospital for use with Covid-19 patients and hospital-related work. For those not familiar with PAPR, the US CDC (Center for Disease Control) describes them as follows: “A PAPR is an air-purifying respirator that uses a blower to force air through filter cartridges or canisters and into the breathing zone of the wearer. This process creates an airflow inside either a tight-fitting facepiece or loose-fitting hood or helmet, providing a higher assigned protection factor (APF) than the reusable elastomeric non-powered air-purifying half facepiece (half mask) or N95 FFRs. A PAPR can be used for protection during healthcare procedures in which HCP are exposed to greater risks of aerosolized pathogens causing acute respiratory infections.” More pictures of the occasion are ... » Learn More about Rotary Club of Pattaya donates powered air-purifying respirators to Pattaya City Hospital

Most of us are still processing 2020. Covid-19 not only kills, it also takes a toll on mental health. Covid-19 has a way of making the walls close in. Restrictions affect socialising, whether you're at work or trying to relax with friends and family. And when restrictions come so close on the heels of easing up, it creates a special kind of agony . How fast should Singapore open up? Or in more recent parlance, should Singapore "trot" or "gallop"? If you're wondering what horses have to do with anything (besides masquerading as a fake "cure" for Covid-19), I'm referring to this post made by Ho Ching, outgoing CEO of Temasek Holdings and wife of Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong. Ho was referring to the number of Covid cases, but "trot" and "gallop" could also refer to whether Singapore ... » Learn More about Should S’pore have another lockdown because of a Covid-19 ‘surge’?

The Multi-Ministry Taskforce (MTF) will be piloting the use of pre-event Covid-19 testing for larger-scale and higher-risk activities like weddings, live performances and other events, it announced on Oct. 20. This is to reduce the risk of individuals with Covid-19 being present at events and to allow more large-scale events to resume in the future. Pre-event testing Participants to an event will be required to be tested shortly before the event, at the event venue or at a testing facility. Only individuals who test negative will be allowed to take part in the event to prevent transmission. MOH is exploring the use of antigen rapid tests that can produce "fairly accurate" results quickly as there is a need for shorter turnaround time for pre-event testing. However, as antigen rapid tests have lower sensitivity, there is a chance that a person with Covid-19 might not be detected. Thus, safe management measures such as wearing a mask, safe distancing and size and ... » Learn More about Pilot trial to begin in S’pore for pre-event on-the-spot Covid-19 testing for weddings, live performances

As the number of Covid-19 cases surges in recent weeks , some Singaporeans are taking safety precautions to the next level. On Wednesday (Sept 15), three photographs of a man wearing a powered air-purifying respirator surfaced on social media. He was spotted waiting for the train at Serangoon MRT station, appearing to be heading to work. Tickled by his choice of protective gear, some netizens said the respirator reminded them of things such as the characters in Among Us. Jokes aside, other netizens approved of the commuter's get-up and commended him for taking initiative in protecting himself from the coronavirus. Odd as it may seem, this isn't the first time such respirators have made their appearance in public. Back in May, when Singapore was in Phase 2 Heightened Alert, Facebook user MD Shariff Abdullah shared a photo of a woman wearing a similar apparatus while she was ordering food at Tekka Food Centre. In the caption, he expressed curiosity about where she ... » Learn More about Next-level Covid-19 protection: Man spotted wearing respirator at Serangoon MRT station
