    This is terrible. You risk these innocent labourers. Authorities should realise the gravity of this is danger and not a joke.

    Our Health is important .but that is basic we need much more and we called on them to provide those services around the house or outside .like this job ..They did face health and safety risks .but we took it in stride .But this virus has changed our attitudes and we do appreciate all who take risks to provide a service for our welfare .

    Work can go on. Look into where the men live how the health condition there, how they travel and such details. In Spore they thought all under control but discovered many patients in thousands in worker dormitories.

    Actually this is a good time to build some infrastructure, if we are a forward looking nation that is. Like farming construction activities should continue.
