My friend told me that Beijing has introduced blue tooth tracing (just like our Trace Together app).
It is well used.
Beijing allows free movement of people, without any restriction.
His previous office held a function with 700 people. There was no limit on the number.
If there is any infection, it would be detected by the Blue Tooth tracing.
He was quite surprised that Singapore is adopting the following measures:
* Safe Entry by QR
* Trace together
* Limit to 8 people per gathering.
He asked – why not just rely on the Trace Together, which has been proven to be the most effective way of contract tracing, and leave out the Safe Entry and crowd control?
As the community spread has been nil for several weeks, why is Singapore still carrying out many layers of precautions?
I told him that I will send his question to the covid ministers (I shall not call them insane minsters).
