    He ALREADY did:

    The challenge with diabetes is that in the early stages, it is an invisible disease. You do not feel sick; there are hardly any symptoms. You may not even know that you have it. But if it is not treated, over time it can become very serious. If you look at the top causes of death in Singapore, diabetes does not appear there but actually, many common causes of death can be traced back to diabetes – heart attack, stroke, kidney failure – underlying causes, pre-disposing them to diabetes because diabetes damages all these organs. You may also lose your limbs, or go blind, and for the men, if nothing else worries you, diabetes can make you impotent! And that should cause you to sit up. So what can we do?

    Because after spending $66billion p.a. on elderly healthcare costs , there will be little $$$ left to pay the military's operating costs to protect expensive PAP cadre owned properties and even less to pay exorbitant PAP Minister's salaries.

    Short of disposing off their shares in Singapore Inc., i guess their next best option would be to keep the population healthy, fit and productive just as healthy racehorses win medals and healthy cows produce more / better milk.

    Elderly health costs to rise tenfold by 2030: Report
    The findings on elderly healthcare costs could influence government policies and decisions on healthcare infrastructure spending as well as personal insurance and retirement planning.

    Each senior in S'pore will need average of $51k a year, the highest figure in Asia-Pacific

    Elderly healthcare costs in Singapore are projected to rise tenfold over the next 15 years to more than US$49 billion ($66 billion) annually, according to a report.
    This means an average of US$37,427 will be spent on healthcare for each elderly person by 2030. This is the highest in the Asia-Pacific region, just ahead of Australia.

    The report was released yesterday at the launch of Marsh & McLennan Companies' new Asia-Pacific Risk Centre, which is supported by the Economic Development Board. The firm provides professional services such as risk management.
    The US$49 billion figure was derived by taking into consideration demographic changes, long-term care costs and medical cost inflation. It includes public expenditure, private insurance and out-of-pocket spending.
    The report estimated that US$5 billion was spent on healthcare for the elderly last year as a senior citizen's healthcare expenditure is estimated to be four times that of an average person's. By 2030, the healthcare expenditure for each senior is estimated to rise from US$8,196 in 2015 to US$37,427.

    MODEST ESTIMATE
    It's a conservative estimate given that the numbers do not take into account indirect costs, such as transport, and opportunity costs from caregivers' time... It also assumes that we have the same ready access to cheap foreign labour which may not be the case in the future.
    DR JEREMY LIM, a partner in Oliver Wyman global health practice, on the findings.
    "It's a conservative estimate given that the numbers do not take into account indirect costs, such as transport, and opportunity costs from caregivers' time," said Dr Jeremy Lim, a partner in Oliver Wyman global health practice.
    "It also assumes that we have the same ready access to cheap foreign labour which may not be the case in the future."
    Dr Ng Wai Chong, chief of clinical affairs at Tsao Foundation, agreed. He felt the figures might even be an underestimate if the current health and social care systems are not improved and people do not manage their own health more proactively.
    Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam said last year that healthcare spending in Singapore is expected to rise from over $9 billion last year to over $13 billion in 2020.
    These are just public expenditure figures, the Ministry of Finance confirmed yesterday.
    The implications of these new numbers are wide-ranging, said Mr Wolfram Hedrich, executive director of the Asia-Pacific Risk Centre.
    "Our findings will influence government policies and decisions on healthcare infrastructure spending. Individuals need to carefully consider how well-prepared they are to fund their retirement healthcare needs, especially given the limited range of affordable insurance products," he said.
    Dr Lim said the proposed review of ElderShield - announced during last Sunday's National Day Rally - is timely as it covers only the severely disabled and the payout is modest.
    "We can also look at other new solutions such as having reverse mortgage schemes to allow people to monetise their housing assets to pay for healthcare when they are old or allowing the use of MediShield and Medisave overseas if their price points are lower," he added.
    Dr Ng said there is a "keen awareness of the risk of rising healthcare costs at the government, community and personal levels".

    When asked for its comments on the report, which it received yesterday, the Ministry of Health said it is studying it and will respond at a later time.

    Probably due to poor fitness and health, many Singaporeans are not fit for employment and poorly productive at work, even senile and not even fit to do Uber eats, deliveroo food delivery work (leg pain, breathless, unfit etc).
    His cabinet is worried at having to face a S$66billion p.a. invoice for elderly healthcare costs and is thus performing emergency surgery on Singapore's only resource: its citizens to save the Singapore economy.

    Rather belated, but better late than never i think.
