S’poreans react to Minister Tan Chuan-Jin recovering from TB

Three thoughts that must have went past your mind at some point.

Tan Chuan-Jin, Minister for Social and Family Development, was diagnosed in February 2015 with pleural tuberculosis, which infected the area between his lungs and rib cage.

He is reported to have made a full recovery in October.

Apparently, there was very little risk of Tan spreading the disease to people he came into contact with because this otherwise contagious infection was contained within his body.

 

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “Why didn’t Straits Times ask if this was a cover up? Why is the public only informed about this now? Where is the timeline?”
Hei Koo, 44-year-old asthma drug importer

 

sian-half-uncle “Voters were not told he had TB during the General Election 2015 in September. Was it a political decision?”
Hu Xi, 62-year-old shoelace maker

 

happy-bird-girl “No wonder his lips so white.”
Zhui Chun, 17-year-old lip balm retailer
