Later, I will be going to the airport to fetch a friend arriving from the Philippines. I asked my friend to bring some face masks and told him that Singapore is in Orange Alert which is the highest alert level. But right now, there has been no confirmed or reported case here in Singapore. It's better safe than sorry so I decided to buy some fruits just to boost my immune system, at the nearest grocery in our block. I then went to Guardian, a pharmacy beside the grocery, and was trying to check where can I buy some masks. When I saw two people at the counter, the older woman asked the attendant in her a bit loud voice, about face masks. The attendant told her that they have none already. Geezzzzzzz that sucked. The older woman asked if when will they have some stocks and the attendant replied she did not know. So, I just walked out of the store thinking where can I buy some masks. As I have said, I am going to the airport but it's going to be later so I will have time to look for masks.
Anyway, when I scoured the net, there's already a confirmed case in Korea and Hong Kong. Click the link here to read further. Then I realized, I have team mates who went to Hong Kong for vacation and they will be back by Tuesday I think. Hope they will be safe. Hope they won't be infected and in the process spread the virus.
I think we need to take lots of doses of vitamin C and other immuno boosters. There's no vaccine yet so everyone should be careful.
Last thing, I hope I can get a mask or rather, masks and I mean the earliest time possible. Ciao!
