“Cut thru the haze” – Rumours Vs Facts. ( Haze PSI 3-hour 65)

Rumour: PSI index on NEA website was 393 at 10pm on 19 June 2013 was 393, but later changed to 321.

This is FALSE.This is what MEWR says: “With reference to the queries on PSI readings posted on NEA’s website on the evening of 19 June 2013, NEA has checked its website records, which confirm that there was no PSI value posted that was higher than the 3-hour PSI reading of 321. This was the correct PSI value for 10pm on 19 June 2013. Our records also show that there had been no editing or deletion of that PSI reading on the website.”
Rumour: Tan Tock Seng Hospital had overcharged for N95 masks at $60/box.  

This is FALSE. Tan Tock Seng Hospital’s Facebook says:“Dear Friends,We understand the concerns of Singaporeans regarding the poor air quality. To clarify, we have not raised the price of the N95 masks. It has always been at $60 for a box of 20 pieces even before the onset of haze. We have been trying to attend to the overwhelming demand for the masks today and did not have a chance to review it.

We will bring the price down to $50 for a box of 20 pieces of N95, starting tomorrow to make it more affordable for the public. This will be in line with the other hospital pharmacies. We will do the same for surgical masks.

We sincerely apologise to all for the inconvenience caused.”
