Man Who Claimed to Have the Coronavirus Charged for Public Nuisance 

A 41-year-old man who claimed to have contracted the Coronavirus was charged with public nuisance upon being found guilty of using threatening behaviour against another man at the Singapore Post (Singpost) outlet in Tampines.

According to CNA, the accused, Vijayan Pillay Sandarasegaran, had visited the Singpost outlet without a mask on 30 March. Charge sheets from the day of his visit showed that he had failed to undergo the mandatory temperature screening upon his entry.

Now, remember: it was 30 March 2020. Walking around without a mask isn’t an offence.
