I have been neglecting this blog because of time pressures from the SG50 Project. That’s thankfully being wrapped up now, and life can slowly return to normal.

In any case, here’s a staged video from the project about directly observed anti-tuberculosis therapy (DOTS) in Singapore. Unfortunately it is too onerous (not to mention potentially stigmatising) to film a real patient going through this, but I am glad one of the students from Ngee Ann Polytechnic’s School of Life Sciences & Chemical Technology agreed to “stand in”.

The nurse is the real deal however. The process is rapid and the queue is short, whether be it at the TB Control Unit or at any polyclinic in Singapore.
