Singapore haze hits worst level

The haze this morning is extremely bad.

I’m to stay at home the whole of today because I woke up with rashes and outbreak of pimples.


There’s a group of engineers in Singapore who came up with a system to count the number of particles in the air.
Prior to the haze, there’re about 30K to 120K particles in the air but now there’s about 750K particles in the air.
It’s better to trust your own eyes and nose as not only it’s a three hour average, they may have brought the machine indoor to do the readings as well.
Asking them to punish their own companies is about the same as asking them to check on AIM.
If one’s health can no longer take it, just apply for no pay leave, your life is not worth just a day of salary.
Sadly, we don’t have independent trade union just like we don’t have independent mainstream media to provide us with accurate but “right” news and our Prime Minister along with the Manpower as well as Health Ministers are so certain that subjecting outdoor workers to daily inhalation of hazardous air will not result in the permanent damage of their health or even in the loss of lives.
Singaporean, health comes first not money.

Biochemistry people have said that these particulates in the haze are too tiny and they will bypass the hairy and mucous nose to lodge into the lungs. As these particulates are non-water solvent, they will stay in the lungs and cause cells to mutate and potentially cancer cells can develop from there. Children and elderly should stay indoors now.


Prime Minister: We cannot tell how this problem is going to develop because it depends on the burning, it depends on the weather, it depends on the wind. It can easily last for several weeks, and quite possibly it could last longer until the dry season ends in Sumatra, which may be in September or October. So we will need to adapt our response to suit the changing situation and protect ourselves in practical and sustainable ways.

Ministry of Manpower: Under the Workplace Safety & Health Act (WSH Act), employers have a duty to protect their employees’ safety and health at work. When PSI levels exceed 100, employees will be exposed to higher levels of safety and health risk due to poor visibility and/or ill effects of haze. Hence, it is incumbent upon employers to carry out a proper risk assessment and to implement appropriate measures, including specifying when to stop work, so as to ensure that risks identified are minimised or mitigated.

Ministry of Health: asked hospitals, which were already seeing a rise in complaints of haze-related ailments, to prepare for a spike in the number of cases of asthma, bronchitis and conjunctivitis.

Yet none in the government thus far ask to stop work especially outdoor, is this the kind of government that people in Singapore want?

Emeritus Senior Minister: the Singapore Child better learn to survive the tortuous smog and haze

You voted for this?

In forest fires, there are large amounts of small particles, but also many chemical hazards such as carbon monoxide (CO), hydrogen cyanide (HCN), and lots of largely undefined, highly reactive, short-term and long-term toxic chemicals (aldehydes, acids and volatile aromatics) which are not measured by PSI.

The government currently has 9 million N95 masks in stock, and there are plans to purchase more.

But they are not gonna give for free instead they’re gonna sell at an inflated price so that their GDP will increase as more people visit the doctor or pharmacy etc agree?

The particles readings have gone down, it seems that the wind has changed directions, instead of coming from the front of where I am right now, it’s coming from the back.
Let’s just admit it, the smoke that we’re getting right now is nothing compared to how the government have been smoking us in the past years.

This is the government people have been voting the reason to why we have been suffering over the many years.
