He shares about the need to be responsible for our own personal health by practising good hygiene, including washing hands with soap. He even makes it a point to give special attention to his long finger nail on his right pinky finger.
He also reminds viewers to check their temperatures twice a day, throwing in a “hot” joke for good measure.
As the best in Singapore and JB, he cannot help but admire a sturdy window even while reminds everyone to keep their homes well ventilated.

The video ends off with him encouraging his fellow Singaporeans that “together, we will get through this.”
