The problem with a zero Covid strategy is that there is no end game now. I donít see the Chinese culture allowing them to change their strategy in the face of a highly transmissible variant of SARS COV-2, so HKG and China will no doubt remain isolated and cut off from the rest of the world for the foreseeable.
I donít see how Cathay can survive at all

The only way forward is an outbreak in China or Hong Kong.

SYD and LHR got suspended for 14 days. RIP long haul stopover revenue.

Zero Covid Strategy will and always make no sense when vaccines are a thing. It sucks that agreement with ZCS doesn't seem to be limited to the pro-establishment or pan-democracy camp in HK - it seems to be agreed across the board with only expats against it. Very little local talk on switching to SG-style Living with Covid and abandoning 21 day quarantine.

Huan yin lai dao Xiang Gang

Edit: my bad should have said pan-democracy supporters ("yellow ribbon") and pro-establishment supporters ("blue ribbon") instead, I was talking about the regular people not the politicians. Exodus is slow but sure, it takes time for people to plan and execute their exit. It is painfully obvious that Carrie only gives fxxk about reopening with Mainland and not the rest of the world lol, not even possible to have wishful thinking.

I agree Dual. Indeed it will be a miracle if they manage to keep it out now.

1. There is no more pan-democracy camp in HK, they are all either in jail or left HK
2. As the former HK Legco President Rita Fan once said, if you can't accept the 'one country two systems', you are welcome to leave... and FYI, their definition is one country > 2 systems, so if PRC says control covid at all costs, the SARs do as they are told.
3. The HK Gov is ONLY interested in opening the border with PRC, whether or not the rest of the world can come to HK, they don't really care.
4. Ppl in HK want to travel, many actually want to go have a look at what it's like in UK/Canada/Australia as it's not easy to move without having actually been to the place for more than a week. But at the same time, many locals are happy that because of the border restrictions, there are much fewer mainlanders on the streets in general.

Just like you don't question why North Korea has a 0 COVID strategy, you don't question the CCP's policies if you want to continue to live in HK. The CCP has been getting ready for internal circulation of the economy since the trade war started, as the current Deputy Chairman Wang said a few years ago, the Chinese can survive on just eating grass for a year. You might as well stop the wishful thinking and just accept it or just do what many locals have done in the last 12 months, leave...

All this panic and PB visits for something less severe than the Delta variant?

https://www.livescience.com/omicron-...early-evidence

Those with the variant are estimated to be between 31% and 45% less likely to attend A&E compared with the Delta variant, and 50% to 70% less likely to be require admission to hospital

I could post another 10 links but I am sure you get the point.

Oh FFS, just shut down the whole dog & pony show already!!



The Cathay Pacific crew member had left for the United States last Wednesday, and tested preliminary-positive for the coronavirus on Saturday, triggering mandatory testing Ė though not an overnight lockdown Ė for residents of Tower 3 in Tung Chungís Visionary condominium complex.

Cathay Pacific flights from London, Korean Air services from Seoul and Emirates Airlines flights from Dubai were halted for two weeks each after passengers the carriers brought to the city were found infected on arrival.
