HK public don't care either.

To them it's better that these infected privileged pilots and cabin crew and their families get locked up so the chances of infection to them is reduced.

Nobody gives a about how bad things are in Penny Bay until they themselves get force to go there... people always think about themselves...

Ain’t that the truth. The CHP are shaming the Stasi with this latest stunt.
Just to be clear, that’s the individual concerned, his entire household, (partner, kids, babies, helper if you have one, pets etc), banged up, just because the individual concerned was enjoying the unique privilege of doing his job, which includes bringing precious commodities in to Hong Kong. And this is in the absence of a positive test ? The place is well and truly stuffed.
Down tools. A mass, anonymous orchestrated outbreak of back pain is the only way to deal with this. And what are they going to do about it ? Fire you and place you on a lesser contract ? They’d have a job finding one.
They are also missing the fundamental point that the mental strain of this, combined with almost 2 years now of being confined to hotel rooms, food, regular unnecessary testing, and trying to keep some semblance of competence going with poor recency, is a recipe for disaster.
What a crock.

oh ppl know, I have a friend who's been there while his dad was in ICU with the virus, he didn't really mind cuz he gets to take 14 days off work blaming internet there.....but also because normal people who don't go in and out, they don't get tested as often which means they have less chance of getting sent there, then why should they care?

So the families got 21 days as well, having somehow become a reverse contact.
Foreign children being detained under a communist regime with no rule of law.
Really displays the mentality of this place, which has descended into a 3rd world city. With detention with no recourse to any semblance of science or justice.

minimum 3 days. Now 21. Noticed trying to keep a lid on it. So they can continue to crew planes with the added risk.

False positive test, so all involved released from the shackles/confinement.

Any compensation for all the suffering each person affected had to endure for their "false positive"? 😞
