Tuesday Tips: Haze survival tips

Over the weekend, the Pollutant Standards Index in Singapore has reached 3 digits, the first time in 3 years! As a rule of thumb, anytime the PSI goes into 3 digits, it's bad news.

We can't control the weather, but we can give you a few tips to help with minimising the effects of air pollutants on our eyes, nose, throat, and lungs.

1. Stay indoors. 
This may be obvious, but yes, close the doors and the windows or any openings that may let dirty air sneak in. Turn on the air conditioner or the air purifier (if you have one). Your electric bill won't thank you, but it's better than getting a hospital bill. Avoid outdoor activities - you can always join a gym if you're afraid of missing out on your cardio.

2. Wear appropriate masks.

When it hit Singapore 10 days later, just before the Chinese New Year break, our team was not preparing for the festivities, but rather preparing for a crisis. We knew our digital healthcare platform had the capability to respond quickly to the epidemic that was fast turning into a pandemic.


First, let me quash some rumours: The latest coronavirus outbreak is not the faste…
