On a whim, I decided to check out the statistics for the videos on Singapore and Infectious Diseases that we produced as part of the SG50 celebrations in 2015. They were uploaded on YouTube just over a year and half ago – an item off the bucket list! I still think the final video was pretty good, although we are not even anywhere near what can be considered a rounding error when compared to Gangnam Style’s 2.8 billion views.


The three most viewed videos for our channel were the original video, Prof Roy Chan’s interview clip, and – surprising but relevant given recent news – the clip on directly observed therapy (DOTS) that we were given permission to film at our TB Control Unit.
