IN our bitter battle against our common enemy, Covid-19, I would like to suggest the following.
Foreign workers must be treated the same as citizens not only because it is only fair but also in our own self-interest. We are in the same boat, which can be sunk if they are not vaccinated or not given proper facilities that allow them to take necessary precautions like physical distancing.
Have we not learned from our neighbour’s and our own experience with the many infection clusters in factories and construction sites?
Secondly, we must go all out on vaccination now – and woe betide those who meddle with this!
Many are still wasting time and effort when they don’t turn up for their appointments. While it is sensible to discourage people from walking in without a date, it may be wise to allow senior folk through if they arrive with a family member or friend and are willing to be on standby with no promises of a shot.
Let’s make this a transparent and fair policy to save vaccines and get more vaccinated without extra expense.
And let us all pray that God helps us.
