As of 18th May 2020, 88% of the covid19 cases are Work Permit holders living in Dormitories. This also means that all of them will be returning to the workforce soon when they have recovered. So what happens next? Singapore is using a device that is given to every worker to monitor their oxygen level and can help detect early signs of a deterioration in health
It is important for Singapore to provide medical support in the recovery phase of covid19. This helps to ensure that workers living in the dorms are supervised and are well enough to eventually return to work
MyCLNQ wants to be part of this. Our app may not be popular among the work permit holders in Singapore but we are definitely looking to change this by
- Giving them e-vouchers to use in case of the need for non-emergency medical transport
- Contact relevant companies that have employees that are made up of work permit holders to educate them on how to use our app
The team at MyCLNQ feels that EVERYONE should have the knowledge and access to simpler healthcare especially during this time when everyone is using a smartphone. If they can use Facebook, they will definitely be able to navigate our user-friendly app.
We hope to kickstart this project by early June to ensure that we are doing our part as a company to help Singapore in this difficult time
mindful eating during covid19
We are seeing impressive growth of online doctor consultation worldwide because of the pandemic. This action is necessary to supply the demand of people who are unwell but not because of covid19
There are still children who need to see the paediatrician or elderly who are unwell due to hypertension or other diseases that are no longer accepted as walk-ins at the hospital.
Though the medical infrastructure in Singapore is good, most companies or people who are serving their Stay Home Notice at the designated hotels are advised to seek online medical consultations. There are a number of digital health startups that provide video consultations where patients can now keep track of heir health without compromising the social distancing and self-isolation norms.
MyCLNQ is continuously improving our app to make healthcare experience seamless and simple for everyone. We are currently working on adding this new feature to our app at soonest possible considering the high demand.
Our video doctor consultation will also be available in all 4 languages (Malay, Mandarin, Tamil, English) in support of the elderly who may not speak English as their first language
More features aside from the video consultation are coming your way this year so please stay updated by following our telegram channel or our FB/IG

While there is not enough evidence at the moment to determine if COVID19 can be contaminated through parcels and deliveries. What we do know that SARS-CoV-2 was more stable on plastic and stainless steel than on copper and cardboard, and the viable virus was detected up to 72 hours after application to these surfaces.
There is a possibility of your parcel to be contaminated along the way, but, the infection risk is very low because, as the New England Journal of Medicine study found, the survival time on cardboard is thought to be around one day.
Unlike plastic or glass surface area that is somewhat “waterproof” and can hold water droplets for a longer period, most cardboard parcels would absorb the droplet and it may not be so easily picked up when you touch the package.
The survival time on cardboard is thought to be one day. So some people are leaving out their deliveries and mails for at least 24hours before touching them if it is not something to be open urgently.
Essentially, we should always be cleaning with alcohol wipes on things that we often touch or we do not know where it has been like your phones and parcels. Clean them regularly with alcohol wipes (which need to be around 70% alcohol). You may use baby wipes however, most baby wipes only have a low percentage of alcohol so are less effective
Though most deliveries companies have strict rules to follow due to covid19, most of them do not require you to touch a device for signature or handling of the package. Most delivery companies have adopted the drop and go system to decrease the risk of spread.
That being said, you should still consider wiping down a package before opening it and washing your hands well after disposing of the packaging.
The government has encouraged us to stay home as much as possible, but if you need to head out for work or to run essential errands; Here are some things you should have in your bag
- Bottled Water : It is important to keep healthy regardless the virus outbreak. Your body will need to be hydrated so that you won’t fall sick easily. You need at least 2 litres of water a day. So keep one handy in your bag
- Hand Sanitiser: We are advised to not touch our face when we are out until we have cleaned them. It is very handy to carry this in your bag to clean your hand and public surface areas
- Mask : Wearing a mask in a crowded area ensures extra protection to prevent other people’s water droplets such as coughs and sneezes from your face.
- Gloves: Wearing gloves is also an extra precaution. Use disposable gloves when you know you will be touching or in contact with other unknown objects frequently but make sure to get rid of it immediately
- Tissue/ Wet wipes : This is helpful when cleaning surface areas in public places
- Vitamin C : This is also the time to ensure your body is getting all the vitamins it needs to maintain a strong immune system
Some people fear of boredom during the lockdown that Singapore just implemented. Take this time to relax, meditate. Take this time to reconnect with family members. Here is some list of things to do to make the most of it.
Read. Have people forgotten about books? When is the last time you actually have this luxury to just sit and read with a nice cup of coffee?
If you don’t have any books to read and you can’t go to the book store, there are so many online books you can download or even audiobooks.
Reading is actually relaxing and a habit of most successful people. Bill Gate reads 50 books a year!
Games. Yes, online games. Remember how fun it was. Remember how annoying it is to stop playing all because you have lunch plans outside, or because you need to run for an appointment. Now you have the luxury of time and being indoors. Play NEW games and support local game developers
Free online course. There is an abundance of educational resources on the web readily available for anyone who wants to learn. You can go to websites that offer free courses like Udemy, Coursera, Future. So many skills you can learn to master
Homecook Meal. Learn new recipes
You don’t always have to rely on hawker centres and take out meals. Give your mum a break, or whoever does the cooking by shifting meal routines. Take turns cooking a meal. Improvise on your cooking skills by learning new recipes online. There are youtube tutorial videos for cooking just about ANYTHING
Indoor Workout/Yoga Don’t give yourself any more excuses. You can still be healthy and fit indoors. You don’t have to go to the gym or run to the beach. You can do all these at home.
Download a movie online or simply Netflix. Set a time for everyone to watch and enjoy together. You can even prepare popcorns and bites just to make it extra enjoyable
We hope that we have inspired you to do a thing or two from the list we suggested. Let us know which one you are enjoying most.

Myths about Covid-19 as adviced by WHO
Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease that is highly contagious and has affected the whole world. Most people infected with the COVID-19 virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness. However, it can be deadly for older people or people with existing health diseases/chronic diseases
As there is currently no cure for Covid19, the best prevention method is to be well informed about the COVID-19 virus, the disease it causes and how it spreads.
Hygiene is an important precautionary method. Protect yourself and others from infection by washing your hands or using an alcohol-based rub frequently and not touching your face.
Stay home and self quarantined. If there is no emergency to be outside, remain indoors as much as possible. If you need to be outside, please practise self-distancing. Self-distancing means being at least 1.5m – 2m away from someone else.
#1 Cold weather and snow CANNOT kill the new coronavirus.
There is no reason to believe that cold weather can kill new coronavirus or other diseases.
#2 The new coronavirus CANNOT be transmitted through mosquito bites.
To date, there has been no information nor evidence to suggest that the new coronavirus could be transmitted by mosquitoes. The new coronavirus is a respiratory virus which spreads primarily through droplets generated when an infected person coughs or sneezes, or through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose.
#3 Hand dryers are not effective in killing the 2019-nCoV.
To protect yourself against the new coronavirus, you should frequently clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water.
#4 ultraviolet disinfection lamp cannot kill the new coronavirus
UV lamps should not be used to sterilize hands or other areas of skin as UV radiation can cause skin irritation.
#5 Spraying alcohol/chlorine all over your body cannot kill the new coronavirus
No, it won’t kill viruses that have already entered your body. Spraying such substances can be harmful to clothes or mucous membranes (i.e. eyes, mouth). Be aware that both alcohol and chlorine can be useful to disinfect surfaces, but they need to be used under appropriate recommendations.
#6 regularly rinsing your nose with saline cannot help prevent infection with the new coronavirus
#7 Eating garlic cannot help prevent infection with the new coronavirus
Garlic is a healthy food that may have some antimicrobial properties. However, there is no evidence from the current outbreak that eating garlic has protected people from the new coronavirus.
#8 Antibiotics are not effective in preventing and treating the new coronavirus
No, antibiotics do not work against viruses, only bacteria.
The new coronavirus (2019-nCoV) is a virus and, therefore, antibiotics should not be used as a means of prevention or treatment.
However, if you are hospitalized for the 2019-nCoV, you may receive antibiotics because bacterial co-infection is possible.
