🚨 PM Lee Hsien Loong’s Sneaky Sneezy Encounter with Covid-19 for the First Time! Says He’s Like, ‘NBD’ 🤷♂️
Look who’s saying ‘Covid-19, who’s asking?’ It’s none other than Singapore’s main man, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, catching the virus for the first time ever! 😱 He’s been jet-setting to South Africa and Kenya recently and guess what? Covid hitched a ride back with him. Despite being 71, the PM says he’s feeling generally okay-ish. 💪 Plus, he’s self-isolating now because, let’s face it, who wants to share a virus? He’s also taking Paxlovid, an antiviral med. Remember, he got his most recent Covid booster last November. Stay vaccinated, folks! ⚠️
It’s the first dance with the viral devil for Singapore’s Prime Minister, Lee Hsien Loong. You can almost hear him singing, “I will survive!” 🎵 while munching on his breakfast. Yep, this Monday morning surprise came to him courtesy of some globetrotting adventures to South Africa and Kenya. 😎
Question is, was it the lion safari or the penguins at Boulders Beach that were not socially distant enough? 🦁🐧
His medical squad advised him to stick to his own company until he’s virus-free. A bit like a time-out, except you can’t really hang out with your buddies. The doctors hooked him up with Paxlovid, an antiviral medication, which, considering he’s on the flip side of 70, seems like a good call. 👨⚕️💊
Now, our hero of the hour is no slacker in the Covid-prevention department. He received his most recent booster in November. Yet, he caught the bug. 🦠 So, how many of us are keeping up with our jabs?
Ironically, PM Lee was in Cape Town and Nairobi for official visits when he could have been safe at home watching Netflix, just when Singapore was at the peak of a Covid wave. 🌊 At around 4,000 cases a day, who could blame him for wanting a break? But, hey, when you’re the PM, duty calls! 📞
Health Minister Ong Ye Kung is feeling the heat too, as the vaccination rates among seniors have dropped from 58% at the start of 2023 to 50% by May 9. He’s urging everyone to keep up with their shots to maintain the city’s resilience against Covid. 💉🛡️
In his words, “We must continue to stay safe and healthy.” But how do we ensure that, especially when the man leading us is battling the virus himself? And with the Covid wave still going strong, how safe are we really? 😰
Just some food for thought, Singapore. Let’s hope our PM beats the virus soon and comes back stronger. 🙌 But, in the meantime, let’s take his ordeal as a stark reminder that this pandemic is still far from over. So, question is: are we doing enough to protect ourselves and our loved ones? 🤔
