On 16 January, a Facebook user named Siti Shahira posted on her timeline urging people to contact her if they have seen her son, Danish Farazqi bin Md Fazlee.

A couple of hours later, the Singapore Police Force (SPF) put up an appeal on the whereabouts of the 7-year-old child, who was last seen at Block 61 Geylang Bharu at about 10am wearing a white and orange shirt, paired with orange shorts.

According to Danish’s grandmother, the young boy with autism had apparently gone missing while his mother was sending his two other siblings to school.

However, after just three hours of posting the appeal, Danish was found at NEX, a shopping mall in Serangoon, by patrolling officers from Serangoon Neighbourhood Police Centre.

It appears that the boy had taken several buses before reaching his final location.

The ordeal which lasted for about five hours finally came to a happy ending for Danish’s family. Although the police could have just returned the child safely to his family, they decided to go beyond that by actually buying him a toy.

After the reunion, the boy’s mother updated her Facebook post, thanking her family, friends, and most importantly, the SPF for their efforts in locating her child.

Upon posting this news on Facebook, many netizens shared their happiness and congratulated SPF for their job well done.

Besides the general public, Danish’s mother, grand-aunt and grandmother also took the opportunity to thank SPF for safely bringing the boy home.

尽管本地出现凤山Sparkletots幼园感染群,多达15教职员和五名校长家属感染,不过总理李显龙解释为何未作出关闭学校、停课的原因。 李显龙今日于总统府接受本地媒体访问。总理提及,有许多人问,为何疫情当下不关闭学校? 目前,包括日本、香港等地都已宣布停课。 对此他解释,学校可以是安全的地方,且学校提供很重要的服务予学生家长,“如果不开课,不代表(疫情)问题解决,但是学生要如何安顿?” 他指出,那些有家长或大人照顾的孩子,或许会“乖乖”待在家做作业,但是家里没有大人可能就溜出去溜达、到电玩中心、去商场等,更有感染的风险。 他强调政府仍密切监督情况,“尽管我们有凤山Sparkletots幼园感染群,但多数是教职员,多佛国际学校感染群也是教职员。” “应作个别单位看待” 对此,总理认为就如同对待工作场所,应把学校作为个别单位,而不是整体来看待。例如有工作场所出现感染群则重点对应处理,而不是关闭掉整个体系。 早前,一些家长对疫情进展感到担忧,有者也发起网络请愿,要求教育部继续延长关闭学校的期限。 对此教育部长王乙康曾解释,多数年轻患者都是因为家里或学校以外的缘故被感染。 他也引述新加坡国立大学医学部主任、世卫组织全球疫情和警报响应网络主席费舍尔(Dale Fisher)的说法,学生如今能够上学可能会更安全,因为他们会与同侪一起相处而不是与到其他社区闲晃,增加感染机率。…
