Intentionally splotching a public area with bodily fluids would be widely regarded as a bad move on a regular day, not to mention when it's during a global virus outbreak.
Such is what apparently happened in the infamous neighbourhood of Yishun recently. The Nee Soon Town Council actually had to print out an advisory to urge people from committing such acts after receiving feedback about “vandalism” at a residential estate.
Embarrassingly, the female vandal had been caught on CCTV smearing blood (presumably hers) on the lift door panels. Thankfully, she wasn’t demented enough to do so on the elevator buttons.
From the looks of the notice shared on the All Singapore Stuff Facebook page, it appears that the bloodstains aren’t that huge — more blots than splashes. Still, it’s pretty revolting.
Speaking to Lianhe Wanbao, Nee Soon GRC Member of Parliament (MP) Louis Ng mentioned that the identified culprit had been smearing blood on the lift panel repeatedly over the past few months — the poor cleaners were tasked to remove the stain several times.
“We didn’t fine her or take action because we want to give her a chance,” remarked the MP, adding that the exact location of the sanguine scene cannot be disclosed as they don’t want her to be harassed. The town council, however, will take action if she ignores the advisory.
It’s a good thing then that Nee Soon Town Council has taken cautionary measures like getting the cleaners to disinfect the public areas at HDB blocks, from letterboxes to playgrounds.
We don’t want to be presumptuous about the source of the blood, so we’ll just let the internet reactions do the talking.
