Tan Tock Seng Hospital Nurses Plead Citizens To Stay Home While Healthcare Staff Fight Covid-19

Earlier this month, Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong asked citizens to carry on with their lives in the Covid-19 landscape, albeit more cautiously.

However, in light of latest developments, perhaps it is best if we stay at home instead.

In a Facebook post on 20 Mar, a Tan Tock Seng Hospital nurse urged citizens to stay home for the sake of healthcare staff who are toiling on the frontline.

She reiterates that Covid-19 is now a pandemic, and asks for people to stop spreading germs so that their loved ones can stay safe.

Referencing the rest of the world as a lesson, she highlights a key takeaway that medical supplies are not infinite.

As resources are limited, the nurse preached the age-old logic of prevention being better than cure — which strikes very true in today’s context.

She concludes by reminding us not to take things for granted, and that we should rally together and beat the Covid-19 pandemic.

Taking care of ourselves so they can focus on Covid-19 battle

At the very end, the nurse came up with a very sensible hashtag: #westayhereforyoupleasestayhomeforus

Healthcare workers battling on the frontline already have a lot on their plate. Let’s not add to their burden by being socially irresponsible.

Support them by keeping yourself and your loved ones safe today.
