Since the episode of SARS, we have seen the outbreak of multiple new viruses like H7N9 and MERS. Living under the ever-present, shadowy threat of a pandemic, how often do we make decisions that will protect ourselves and the people we love from risk of a deadly influenza? Read to explore the social dilemmas during a pandemic and win yourself an iPad Mini!
To raise public resilience and fuel discussion on the issue of social responsibility, the National Security Coordination Secretariat (NSCS) is running a four-part interactive video series, titled ‘The Viral Effect’.
Follow the lives of three ordinary people – a student, a breadwinner and a businessman – who not unlike you and me, are at the centre of a potential pandemic which has begun to affect the lives of their friends, family and colleagues. The nation’s security and the health of the individuals around them lies in the hands of these three ordinary Singaporeans and the choices they make.
When faced with such complex decisions that may carry drastic consequences, what would you do if you were in their shoes?
