Some People Are Super Disease Spreaders

Wonder who will be first to die in a massive killer pandemic or perhaps in a zombie apocalypse? Those who have an especially large web of contacts. At least the authorities in Singapore are going to know who these people are. As soon as some of them start acting like zombies all of them should be hunted down in order to save the city. That much is clear. Other parts of the world face a grimmer prospect.

Though perhaps Tokyo's government will follow up with research of their own patterned after the work in Singapore. Many Tokyo subway riders already wear face masks. So I think the Japanese would get into measures to protect them from super spreaders.

Likely super spreaders should at least take vaccines at the beginning of flu seasons for all new strains so that they do not serve as conduits.

Those who have an especially large web of contacts. Hilarious, you do realize who would fall into this category? Politicians, Police, Municipal Inspectors, DMV workers, teachers, PTA members, retail workers... basically anyone who deals with society at large.
