Hong Kong residents in mainland China will be allowed to return to the city from November without being quarantined, Chief Executive Carrie Lam Yuet-ngor revealed on Tuesday, and said the travel bubble with Singapore was also expected to go ahead next month. But amid the worsening Covid-19 situation in Europe, Lam said Belgium had been added to the city’s list of high-risk countries, and Spain and Italy could soon follow. Speaking before her weekly Executive Council meeting, Lam said those returning from the mainland would be exempt from any quarantine, but numbers would be subject to a quota arrangement because only two border crossings would reopen. “It is a good beginning,” Lam said. “We have only the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge and Shenzhen Bay checkpoints operating, which means the number of Hongkongers to be allowed to come back will be restricted. The border will be further reopened in an orderly manner.”
A bicycle is a pretty great way to get around while burning some calories. For some drivers though, they're proving to be little more than a nuisance on the roads. Two young cyclists certainly had netizens riled up after they were caught on Monday (Oct 26) hogging a road in Sin Ming and weaving in and out of traffic — all while riding without helmets, lights or brakes. Dashcam footage uploaded to Facebook group SG Road Vigilante showed the pair cycling along Sin Ming Avenue at about 7pm that day. As one of the boys overtook a bus which was moving off from a bus stop, the other squeezed past the same bus before swerving to cut it off. They then pedalled along Sin Ming Road, where they each took up one lane of the two-lane road. The boys appeared to be using fixed-gear bicycles, also known as fixies, which are generally ridden without brakes. They were also not wearing helmets, nor did they have any lights on their bikes.
Time is running out for an ailing baby girl in Singapore and her parents are seeking a liver donor for her. In September, Vicky Cheng posted a call for help on Facebook for her daughter who suffers from a deadly liver disease called biliary atresia. It is a rare condition in infants where bile is trapped in the liver due to blocked ducts. If left untreated, the blocked bile flow will cause liver damage and eventually liver failure. Although the baby underwent surgery to drain the bile when she was six weeks old, it did not work out for her, Cheng wrote on a crowd-funding page. Her condition worsened over time and she is suffering from end-stage liver disease. Now, the baby needs a liver transplant. Unfortunately, her parents are not suitable liver donors. While the baby's placed on a waiting list from deceased donors, the odds of finding a match are low, Cheng shared.

SINGAPORE - Netting has been put up along parts of the Changi Jurassic Mile, following an incident where a female pedestrian was hit on the head by a stray golf ball from the adjacent golf course. The Changi Airport Group (CAG) said in response to queries on Monday (Oct 26) that the netting was installed last Saturday night, as a safety measure. The netting extends vertically above fencing that segregates the walking path from the dinosaur exhibits and the golf course. The Changi Jurassic Mile is part of the Changi Airport Connector, which stretches from East Coast Park to Terminal 4 and Terminal 2 at Changi Airport. The connector runs alongside the Tanah Merah Country Club. A Facebook user Derek Yap shared that his domestic helper was injured as she and his family were walking along the dinosaur trail last Thursday evening. He said his helper was taken to the hospital and found to have bruising on her head. She was advised to monitor her condition at home and was reported to be «fine so far».
Some users are allegedly breaking open their TraceTogether tokens, removing the battery and even swapping the QR code with that of another device. But doing so is not only a crime, it also puts Singapore at risk. In response to queries from The New Paper, a Smart Nation and Digital Government Group (SNDGG) spokesman said it was aware of online forums where users claimed to have modified the token. «Any deliberate or mischievous act to tamper with the token is a criminal offence under the Computer Misuse Act,» he said. More than 400,000 tokens have been collected since distribution began last month. The spokesman said TraceTogether has helped cut the time to identify close contacts from four days to less than two days. But tampering with the token can hamper contact tracing. Last Tuesday, the multi-ministry task force said checking in with TraceTogether will be mandatory by year-end, with cinemas starting yesterday.
SINGAPORE - Singapore has temporarily halted the use of two influenza vaccines as a precaution after some people who received them in South Korea died, becoming among the first countries to publicly announce a halt of the vaccines’ usage. South Korea reported that 48 have died as of Saturday after getting flu shots, but said it would carry on with the state-run vaccination programme as they found no direct link between the deaths and the shots.
