穿凯蒂猫T恤公然抽电子烟 青年反差形象惹议

日前,一名身穿凯蒂猫T恤,但在公共巴士上公然抽电子烟的青年,其反差形象被身旁的朋友拍摄下来放到网络上,引起网民议论。 据悉,该视频并没有明确指出所拍摄地点与时间,但巴士经过义顺公园小贩中心。9秒视频内,可清楚看见青年是坐在巴士内吸起电子烟,浓浓大烟从嘴巴吐出,青年显然没有顾及旁边的乘客,自顾自吸起烟,甚至身旁朋友也一起拍下视频。 在被朋友拍下视频后,青年仍对着镜头作出剪刀手的姿势,并不惧怕被拍摄下来。 视频上传后,引来网民的议论,大部分网民非议该青年行为,而且并揶揄表示与身穿的凯蒂猫 的形象不符。 根据《烟草(广告与销售控制)法令》购买所有电子烟、电子烟斗和电子雪茄属于违法,将可能被处以最高2000元的罚款。此外,任何人在禁止的地方或车辆内吸烟,最高可处以 1000 元的罚款。 另外,任何引进电子吸烟器属违法,换言之,任何人透过网络购买并运到新加坡供个人使用均属于违法行为,初犯可判处最高一万元罚款或6个月监禁;累犯则将被处以两万元罚款,或12个月监禁。 有网民把该视频转发给环境局,目前尚待当局回应。

强调冠状病毒检测没问题 印尼“零确诊”属上苍护佑

在武汉冠形病毒疫情迅速传播的当前,印度尼西亚再次强调该国的病毒检测程序没有问题,国内没有确诊病例,都是“上苍的护佑”。 据《路透社》指出,印尼卫生部长普特兰托指出,当局从冠状病毒怀疑病例患者身上提取了134个测试样本,包括两名于本周因感染病毒症状而死亡的患者进行检验,但是每个检测结果都呈现阴性。 他表示,若目前所有结果都呈现阴性,那么这个拥有超过2.6亿人口,身居全球第四大人口的国家,就是获得了上苍所给予的护佑。 印尼政府曾于周三指出,该国迄今未出现确证病例,但是不少单位和国家都质疑有关的说辞。 然而,世界卫生组织的印尼代表帕拉妮萨兰则表示,世卫组织对印尼在应对类似情况上所做的准备,充满信心。 医生确认后才检测 报道指印尼的人群检测,比一些邻国来的少,普特兰托则认为,只有在医生确定患者的症状与冠状病毒相似后,才需要进行检测。 “试想像一下,若要检测每名咳嗽或感冒的患者,将要为数百人进行检测。” 据报道,我国一名男子曾在峇淡岛出现发烧和呼吸急促症状,并于2月23日过世,因此曾被传是因冠状病毒而离世。 惟,当地的卫生机构负责人之后表示,该男子是因为另一种未指明的疾病,才出现类似状况且病逝。
