Singapore has been seeing an upsurge in COVID cases, with the reinfection rate climbing due to the XBB Omicron subvariant. Since the end of September, the number of new locally transmitted cases has hovered around 3,000 to 4,000 a day. But on October 11, new local infections spiked to 11,399, the highest in almost three months, sparking concern. The weekly infection ratio also increased to 1.74 as of Oct 10. There is a fear of a new wave here and this is especially worrying because mask mandates are off except for in medical settings and in the public transport system.
Today’s quote is from someone famous throughout the planet – Oprah Winfrey. She reminds us that the more we praise and celebrate our life, the more there is in life to celebrate. This is a good example of being positive and seeing a glass as half full as opposed to it being half empty. When we start to focus on the good things in our life and start and end each day with gratitude, we will be grateful and happy. Conversely, when we start and end each day with negative thoughts and negativity, we become resentful, angry and sad at life which in turn becomes a neverending loop of negative energy in our lives.
And that’s all from me this week. Please do not become complacent and remain safe wherever you are.
