33 岁的佘雪玲是一名坚定的反对党人士,其在 6 月 25 日的一次新闻发布会中以工人党候选人的身份出席。

佘雪玲是 2011 大选时国民团结党的明星候选人之一,但并未加入 2015 年的选举。

时机是她的一个考虑因素,她说自己“现在的职业生涯稳定”,个人生活也处于”非常好的状态”,所以非常适合加入即将到来的大选中。

她承认,决定在今年的选举中参加竞选的做法可能会招致更多的严苛审查,但她说自己这样做是“为了党”,以及“为了我的女儿”,也就是为了新加坡的下一代。

佘雪玲补充道,她相信自己的党派及其领导人。

“我确实意识到自己的回归可能意味着更加密切的关注。但我这样做是为了党,因为我相信党内领导人,我相信党派的愿景。我这样做是为了我的女儿,因为她是下一代的新加坡人,我想为她留下一些东西,无论她的政治倾向或者观点如何。”

在解释自己在 2015 年大选中的角色时,她表示自己一直是旁观者,支持着同样将参加今年选举的候选人余振忠。

2015 年时,佘雪玲曾说过,“人民的情绪”是温暖而欢迎的,虽然这样的情绪并没有直接反映在投票上。

这让她意识到“每一张选票都很重要”,并表示选民“不能选择让其他人来把票投给工人党”。佘雪玲此前曾出现在工人党于选举公布后不久发布的先导视频中。

S'pore firm develops first Omicron-specific testing kit

Dec 06, 2021 | 🚀 Fathership
Home-grown biotechnology firm BioAcumen Global has launched Singapore's first Omicron-specific Covid-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) kit.

This means that a person taking the test will receive one of three results: Covid-19 positive and Omicron positive; Covid-19 positive and Omicron negative; or Covid-19 and Omicron negative.

Currently, PCR kits here that are capable of detecting Omicron require an additional gene sequencing step to confirm the specific variant. This takes an additional day.

Some PCR kits, such as those currently in use by medical technology firm Acumen Diagnostics and biotech firm MiRXES, are able to detect both the Delta and the Omicron strains, but to confirm if a positive case has been infected by Omicron, gene sequencing is necessary.

Mr Jimmy Toh, director of BioAcumen Global, said: "We are looking at ways to cut down the steps and time needed to run this test. This is crucial, especially at the borders where accurate tests need to be done on-site. There is no time to wait on sequencing results to know if a positive sample is infected with Omicron."

Mass production of the kit has begun, and the BioAcumen Global team hopes this kit will provide much needed help locally and in the region for the surveillance and control of this new variant, Mr Toh said.
