Contact Tracing Worked In Singapore & Taiwan — Why Is The US So Behind?

April 26, 2020



Test, trace, and treat have become three major words when it comes to the coronavirus pandemic, but when it comes to stopping a second wave of COVID-19 cases, tracing might be the key. But while other countries have aggressively traced new cases, the United States is still behind, even though companies have access to location data that could help.

  • What if you don’t want to be tracked by the government? Maybe this is natures way of thinning out the overpopulation.

  • Never trust a code written by a person that have no state license or security clearance like Doctors, Nurses, PE's. It will end up putting people under corporate based governance. We already have enough of that.

  • Because these countries aren't lead by money. USA coronavirus response has been about profits from the start. trump holding back as if the virus didn't exist was about ramping up the demands of hard to get medical supplies. I'm an American, but our draws have been fully exposed and trumps zombies still think trump gives them control. I am an American and this is my opinion….

  • The virus survives longer in cooler weather. Singapore’s climate is another reason the disease wasn’t as deadly.

  • The whole event is created to try to push chipping, total vaccination, and total information control.

    How do you know, it is suggested that in America they haven't tested for the virus itself that the RNA material could also be the result of the person's own rna cellular wastes.

  • "The US is MUCH larger than tiny Singapore and Taiwan"
    While this is very much true, I don't think this what the video wants you to see. What should be taken away from this video is that while other countries are persuing this PROVEN way to slow the spread of the virus, the US has done almost nothing. As clearly seen by the number of disease detectives in NYC compared to the larger city of Wuhan. and other countries. To summarise, other countries try to prevent the spread, the U.S. calls it impossible without even trying.

  • I am Taiwanese. The video is very bad by assume Contact Tracing worked by collecting private information from people's phones. Taiwan is a free and democratic country, the government can do limited access to private information. The Taiwan CDC will ask the diagnosed person, where they have been, and who they have contact with. Then the CDC will keep asking the same questions to those who contact with the diagnosed person. All of them will be required to stay in their homes for 14 days. The government will let the public know the travel history of these diagnosed people, and the relevant stores and shopping malls need to be disinfected. People who have been to these places need to pay special attention to their health and avoid contact with others, and they must wear masks. Taiwan CDC will hold a press conference every morning or afternoon to inform all people the current situation and the recommended prevention measures. The pandemic situation changes every day, so the press conference become an important communication channel.

    This has nothing to do with autocracy or democracy, nor private information issues, but the government have the will and experience to control the pandemic. Different countries can still take corresponding measures according to the political system and culture. Of course, in this emergency, there are some special measures and restrictions that will need to be enforced, such as travel history record, quarantine and social distancing.

    It is a pity this time that WHO did not actively inform the world to prepare for prevention as early as possible. Each country has different expertise, but only little experience has been shared earlier. Taiwan was also rejected by the WHO, making it difficult for Taiwan to learn from other countries and communicate with the world. I hope the world will not be full of politics but caring.

  • There is no strict need for the app to know and/or tell which person is using it. The data can be kept anonymous and only app-ids be notified. That doesn't mean anonimity is garanteed, as that might be mined out of the data, but it does mean that privacy isn't broken upfront.

  • This is CV misinformation! Contact tracing does not control not identify the spread of CV. CV can be asymptomatic for up to 14 days (as we know it at this time)… so everyone I have been near or touched surfaces I had been around for the last 14 days does not mean that you have CV. And "contact" tracing is a misnomer… they are not tracing people who have have come in contact with nor the surfaces that I have touched that may have been touched, breathed on, coughed on, etc, in the last x days

  • As a virologist working on Covid-19 here's a good read for you guys below

    The virus affects these genes:

    Aryl hydrocarbon Receptor (AhR) gene : is basically a master-switch which turns other genes on and off.AhRs are responsible for recognizing polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), which are compounds that can cause cancer. AhRs signals the body to neutralize them.A group of Russian scientists has found that in pneumonia, the carries of the 'A'

    allele ('AG' and 'AA' genotypes) for the AHR SNP rs2066853 had a higher risk of developing ARDS.

    During Covid-19, the lungs

    no longer work properly because they get filled with fluid leaking from the blood vessels.AhR can protect the lungs by:

    Combating oxidative stress,

    Decreasing neutrophils (a type of white blood cells).

    CYP1A1 gene : belongs to a group of enzymes called CYP enzymes. CYP enzymes help eliminate toxins from the human body and
    are found in the lungs.A group of Russian scientists has found that the 'A' allele of rs2606345, a SNP in the CYP1A1 gene,was associated with increased susceptibility to pneumonia (3 studies each with several hundred people)

    Furthermore, in another study of 750 people, those with pneumonia who had the 'AA' genotype had a higher risk of acute

    respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).

    IL17A gene : codes for interleukin 17, a pro-inflammatory cytokine that combats pathogens.Activated Th17 cells produce IL-17 to enhance the inflammatory response and recruit white blood cells such as neutrophils and monocytes.

    “Cytokine Storm”

    Uncontrolled inflammation caused by excessive cytokine release is the hallmark of Covid-19. The stimulation of white blood cells can cause a so-called cytokine storm and do more damage than the infection itself.Patients with Covid-19 usually
    have elevated IL-17 in the lungs and blood, which correlates with ARDS severity.

    ACE2 receptor gene : There are 6 major types of its allelles of which Caucasians or 65% of European populations carry this major allele.The major allele in all these variants is associated with greater expression of ACE2, which researchers theorize may increase susceptibility or severity of COVID-19 because this genetic variant potentially provides more entry points for the virus.Indians due to extensive racial admixture have a little advantage over Europeans since maybe less than 40% of us carry major of these.That being said Indians are also at risk owing to other factors I talked about.

    MX1 : MX1 codes for a protein called MX dynamin like GTPase 1 or interferon-induced GTP-binding protein Mx1, Mx1 is

    considered an effector protein of the interferon system; interferon alpha and beta (IFNα and IFNβ), also part of the
    innate immune response, activate Mx1 and put it to work.Mx1 interferes with viral replication, preventing new viruses from being made in the host cell.at rs17000900, the minor ‘A’ allele shows increased Mx1 antiviral activity when interferons are absent. Since coronaviruses appear to suppress interferons, one would expect that rs17000900-A would be associated with reduced rates of coronavirus infection.

    IL-6 : IL-6 also suppresses Th1 cells, while it induces Th2 cells.

    ID01 (Indoleamine 2, 3-dioxygenases) – heme gene modulating the expression of interferon-γ (IFN-γ)

    IRAK3 (Interleukin-1 receptor-associated kinase 3 ) – protein gene related to Asthma,

    TNFSF10 – gene related to Thoracic Cancer,

    OAS1 – a gene related to Pulmonary functions,

    Enzymes like ST3GAL4 & ST6GAL1 – related to Lung functions

    Drugs being used currently to stop Cytokine Storm in India with positive results (but do not self medicate yourself, it's just for your knowledge):

    Statin drug Rosuvastatin – Inhibits Hydroxymethylglutaryl-CoA reductase to reduce pro-inflammatory cytokine and have reduced sepsis levels,

    Aspirin – Anti-platelet effects to reduce neutrophil recruitment by platelet activation,

    Siltuximab – cancer drug that stops CRB directly.

    Canakinumab – cancer drug that has anti-IL-1β antibody.

    Hydroxychloroquinone – Inhibition of Toll-like receptors and high mobility group box 1 (HMBG1) to reduce pro-inflammatory cytokine levels.

    Ivermectin – inhibits IMPα/β1-mediated nuclear import of viral proteins

    Stay Safe, Reward our hardwork by staying at home while we do our work in the labs and hospitals to get this virus under control. Let us forget our differences and unite as one! Cheers from India 🇮🇳 ✝️
