    The new work builds on a recent Cell paper... which showed that 40 to 60 percent of people never exposed to SARS-CoV-2 had T cells that reacted to the virus. Their immune systems recognized fragments of the virus it had never seen before. This finding turned out to be a global phenomenon and was reported in people from the Netherlands, Germany, the United Kingdom and Singapore. Scientists wondered if these T cells came from people who had previously been exposed to common cold coronaviruses—... For the new study, the researchers relied on a set of samples collected from study participants...
  • Singapore Scientsts Find Widespread T-Cell Immunity

    Singapore, 16 July 2020 – The T cells, along with antibodies, are an integral part of the human immune response against viral infections due to their ability to directly target and kill infected cells. A Singapore study has uncovered the presence of virus-specific T cell immunity in people who recovered from COVID-19 and SARS, as well as some healthy study subjects who had never been infected by either virus.
  • The Economist: Trump On The Verge Of Triumph Against Huawei And China’s Manipulations

    Will Donald Trump score an important victory against China by locking out Huawei from western networks? The Economist tried mightily to avoid giving personal credit to Trump in its analysis of decisions by the UK and Canada to exclude the regime-linked firm from its 5G projects. Instead, they cast it instead as “America’s war on Huawei” while noting that the final battle will take place in Berlin.That didn’t fool Donald Trump, who retweeted it out to his followers: The Economist’s unsigned analysis of the Huawei fight is sound enough, but for some reason they barely mention Trump at all,...

    Leaves crunch underfoot as Spot marches through the park, back straight as a tabletop, stride brisk as a soldier’s. A grassy field encircled by trees beckons. But Spot is focused on the asphalt path ahead, where a few joggers and bicyclists are out for some socially distanced sunshine. A cyclist in a brimmed hat rides past. Spot pipes up, not with a bark, but with a recorded message. “Let’s keep Singapore healthy,” comes a woman’s voice, polite but firm. “For your own safety, and for those around you, please stand at least one meter apart. Thank you.” Spot, clearly, is...

    A 40-year-old Singaporean woman was arrested on Monday (May 4) night for committing various offences at Shunfu Mart the day before.

    A wee dog in Toa Payoh has joined the pantheon of meme-worthy critters who’ve masked up during the pandemic, and in adorable fashion too. It was on April 29 that the canonical canine first appeared on Singapore’s radars through a rather superb picture taken by The Straits Times photographer Gavin Foo. In a worrying article about the vulnerability of senior citizens to coronavirus infection, an all-encompassing photo was used. It’s a picture taken at Toa Payoh Central that aptly captures the current situation of the heightened safety measures in Singapore. There’s a cordoned-off coffee shop. There’s a GrabFood delivery rider,...

    When the cat is away, the mice will play. While most people are cooped up at home during the circuit breaker, a three-metre-long King Cobra was spotted taking a stroll near Marsiling MRT on Sunday (May 3) afternoon. The curious spectacle was captured on video and uploaded onto Twitter that day. "I was strolling to NTUC to get groceries when this big girl came out of nowhere," the woman behind the camera, who declined to be named, wrote in her tweet. Speaking with AsiaOne, her sister Feeza recounted how the venomous snake had slithered from a lift lobby of Block...

    The government has decided to extend the circuit breaker for four more weeks till June 1, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong announced today (April 21). This is to keep everyone in Singapore safe, he said, after consulting with the multi-ministry task force (MTF) and assessing that "we will not be able to achieve our intended objectives by ending the circuit breaker on May 4." The MTF's two objectives are to ensure that transmission in the migrant worker dormitories is under control and that it does not spread further to the community. Current breaker measures will also be tightened further. He...

    A 45-year-old man was jailed for 17 months on Wednesday (April 8) after he was caught smuggling 22kg of white rhinoceros horns worth an estimated US$563,000 (S$804,000) at Singapore’s Changi Airport without a permit. In a statement issued after the sentence was handed down, the National Parks Board said the penalty was "the heaviest sentence meted out for the smuggling of wildlife parts in Singapore" to date. The court heard that the horns had been removed from at least five adult white rhinoceros — a species that is threatened with extinction according to an international convention — the court heard....

    Singapore has announced a change of direction in its fight against the spread of the novel coronavirus. Schools will close and all but essential workplaces are ordered shut from next Tuesday. The high-tech island nation was one of the first outside China to discover virus infections.

In a TV address, Friday, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said that “food establishments, markets and supermarkets, clinics, hospitals, utilities, transport and key banking services will...

    Uncooperative patients, long hours and a lack of protective equipment are hampering health care workers across the world as they take the fight to the coronavirus, leading many to fall sick themselves. In Malaysia, a pregnant woman who did not disclose that her father was infected tested positive after giving birth, leading to the shutdown of the entire hospital for cleaning. In the Philippines, nine doctors have died, two of whom had dealt with a patient who lied about her travel history. In Spain, where more than 5,400 health care workers have been infected, accounting for about 14 per cent...
