Hey, it's complicated. Even under normal conditions, Totalitarianism requires a large set of rules. Then the Kung Flu sets in, and it's Komrade Katy bar the door. Luckily, the Singapore Ministry of Health and the various helpful media outfits have been answering
Commenter Adam Smith referred me to a site with "pbs" in the URL that had the above graphic. I spent some time going for the source of it. It turns out that that "ST" on the top right stands for the Straits Times, a big newspaper out of Singapore. The only site I have found that had the actual graphic had a very blurry version on a really dicked-up website out of, I assume, that region. In the meantime, I noted the news and advice out of the Straits Times (an example) and other outlets (another), and the ministry of health (per CNBC) and other gov't agencies (Enterprise Singapore, really??), respectively.
I'll tell you what. After reading a number of Kung Flu advisement web pages and seeing graphics like the one shown here (especially from that last link), I believe this is no fake stupidity, gentlemen. This is real, and these people are real.
I met a young lady from Singapore 15-odd years ago. Let me tell you, though she had a nice body (wish I had more details to tell you!), her mind had me somewhat disgusted. This was the mid-00's still, and I asked her about rumors, oops, rumours for her*, that people were being tracked everywhere. "Sure", she told me, "but what's wrong with that?" I wrote this anecdote in case the reader was wondering what I suddenly have against Singapore. I know, crime is low. I know, it's very clean, as you will get your ass caned for spitting. It's not the way a free man wants to live though.
These are smart people, so when the put numerical values to their Kung Flu hysteria, they do it right. They can figure this stuff out. If you have any confusion due to the above graphic as you enter a restaurant down there, I'm sure the Singaporean hostess could set you straight right away: "C'mon, guys! It's so simple. Whaddya leed a leaflesher course? It's all social distancing lowadays!"
* and yes, for Fleetwood Mac.
