Hep C outbreak: Reserve blame culture for Workers’ Party, opponents of ruling PAP govt

Hep C outbreak: Reserve blame culture for Workers’ Party, opponents of ruling PAP govt

Learning culture only applies to the establishment, everyone else not included.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who believe some people can never be wrong, are nodding their heads and clapping their hands in agreement.

This after Health Minister Gan Kim Yong said in Parliament that revealing the names and punishments received by staff from the Ministry of Health (MOH) and Singapore General Hospital (SGH) in the wake of the Hepatitis C outbreak last year would lead to a blame culture.

Instead, a learning culture needs to be fostered and all Singaporeans need to know is that four MOH officers holding Director-level or equivalent roles and 12 SGH leaders including senior management were punished.

One Singaporean, Shou Cheng Fah, said, he agrees with this sentiment fully: “The blame culture must only be reserved for the opposition political parties, especially the Workers’ Party and other opponents of the PAP.”

“The ruling establishment does not need to be punished because this will get in the way of learning.”

Other locals said this initiative would deter opposition parties and PAP opponents from doing better as they will then never learn.

Another local, Zhen Zhou Dao, said: “I think it is good that the Workers’ Party has not been held responsible for this Hepatitis C outbreak.”

“Because if the PAP were to start a blame culture proper, I am sure they can trace this Hep C outbreak back to AHPETC issue and lead to some probe by the mainstream media regarding someone from the opposition having an affair.”

No one is ever wrong in Singapore.

70% of S’poreans: SGH-Hep C outbreak should have been kept under wraps until end 2016

That would have been ideal.

Singaporeans from all walks of life who are healthy and hepatitis A, B and C negative, have come out to strongly condemn Singapore General Hospital.

This after SGH revealed that there was a hepatitis C spread several months ago in one of their wards where kidney failure patients were residing and the news was made known in October after the General Election 2015.

One Singaporean, Yeo Ji, said SGH should have done more on their part: “I am disappointed that the news of this Hep C outbreak was made known after keeping it secret from the pubic for several months.”

“More should have been done by SGH to keep it further under wraps, preferably until the end of 2016.”

“It is disheartening to see SGH working on a time scale that is not here nor there, not immediate and not enough to look like a cover up.”

Other locals said this news bodes well for the state of medicine in Singapore and there is no need to work up a fuss about it.

Ai Zi Ping, another Singaporean, said: “At least it is only a Hepatitis C outbreak and not an AIDS-Ebola-small-pox-chlamydia outbreak.”

“And we only find out it has been happening since before GE2011.”

Majority of Singaporeans do not remember voting for this.

Singaporeans from 70 percent walks of life are up in arms and chastising The Straits Times reporter Rachel Chang.

This after Chang wrote an article asking questions and suggesting that public officers and medical professionals, in both the Singapore General Hospital (SGH) and the Ministry of Health (MOH), may have delayed the disclosure of information of a Hepatitis C outbreak to the minister and the public for political reasons.

One Singaporean, Shou Bu Leow, said: “I don’t know if she got the memo, but there is no place in Singapore for a reporter whose sole interest is asking difficult questions and getting at the truth.”

“Who does she think she is? 70 percent of Singaporeans did not vote for this type of wayward behaviour.”

“I don’t remember voting for this during General Election 2015.”

Other Singaporeans said the new 70 percent mandate climate has made it loud and clear that reporters with an agenda to ask questions will be promptly dismissed.

One local, Qu Si Bah, said: “If Rachel Chang wants to ask so many questions and put the government in a tough position, she should just join the opposition and get voted into parliament.”

“That is the only venue to ask tough questions. Actually even then…”

Problem lies with too many questions asked, they said.

sgh-ward-4

Singaporeans from 70 percent walks of life who voted for this, have come out to say that there is not much to be said.

This after an Independent Review Committee has been convened in short notice to investigate how hepatitis C infections occurred at the Singapore General Hospital and to get to the bottom of things to give Singaporeans an answer.

However, only 30 percent felt this move was necessary.

Boh Wei Kong, a Singaporean from the majority, said he sees the issue clearly: “A lot of Singaporeans can tell you straightaway where the problem with the hepatitis C infections lies: Too many people asking too many questions.”

“This has resulted in a lot of information disseminated that would take too much time to process and understand, when people could be busy playing mobile phone games or going on holiday.”

Other locals said they preferred a quieter approach to things instead as the unnecessary details reported daily do not help them understand what happened, so it is better to tune out.

Another local, Tia Buay Teo, said: “For the sake of Singapore and Singaporeans, we must not ask any more inconsiderate questions about what happened. This will only inconvenience the authorities who will then have to be accountable. This process is tedious and eventually untenable.”

“We must always remember why we gave the current government a strong 70 percent mandate this General Election 2015: Because they must do whatever they want, we don’t care.”
