In fact, someone needs to make a documentary about what has happened in the aftermath of the DORSCON Orange announcement.
But because I’m a writer and not a director, here’s a quick summary of it:
Singapore recently increased the DORSCON level to Orange.
This came after an increase in the number of confirmed cases of the Wuhan virus without any clear links and with no recent travel history to China.
- Surgical masked ninjas can be seen everywhere you go
- People going to war in NTUC FairPrice and emptying the shelves of rice and instant noodles
- Travelling across the border to Johor Bahru to stock up on daily essentials at the supermarkets there
- Profiteering from the sale of surgical masks
- Using toothpicks to press lift buttons
But there’s one thing even the Wuhan virus can’t take away from Singaporeans, and that’s our love for bubble tea.
Entertaining Video Shows The Aftermath of DORSCON Orange; Bubble Tea is Still Important
Lest you’re too lazy to watch it, the video showcases what’s happening at Orchard Road amidst the Wuhan virus outbreak on day one of the DORSCON Orange.
It is observed that there are still many people out and about on the shopping belt. However, most of them are tourists.
Some people can be spotted wearing masks.
Even the ice-cream uncle at Orchard is affected by the Wuhan virus outbreak.
This is because there has been a decrease in the number of tourists who are usually the ones purchasing the ice cream.
However, even the novel coronavirus and DORSCON Orange scare can’t stop us from having our daily dose of bubble tea.
A lot of people could still be spotted queueing for Hey Tea at Orchard despite the DORSCON Orange announcement.
That said, according to the video, the host notes that the queue is usually longer, but that the crowd inside is “still not bad”.
The host then ends off the segment by saying “I guess bubble tea is more important than health which I agree 50%.”
How about you? Would you still queue up for bubble tea?
The video also lists helpful insights on the proper way to wear your mask.
