Sadly, the 1st world is too woke and soft to make that call. At least Japan has got the balls, but no way that's going to happen further west.
You sure ‘bout that?


Whole world hates Chinar, and rightly so. Interesting few months ahead.

And that right there will be Cathay/HKG's Niche. Rather be lucky than good any day. Hang on, luck runs out if you can't crew the jets. And the tarts are pissed. Can't wait to read management update on this one. "Taking great care to select appropriate opportunities for reactivation....."

The world is open, unfortunately not for CX. Hitch your wagon to a single economy and you shall reap the rewards/ penalties.

From the New York Times:
The Biden administration, fearful that a surge of coronavirus infections in Beijing could spawn a new and more dangerous variant, announced on Wednesday that it will require travelers from China, including Hong Kong and Macau, to present negative Covid-19 tests before entering the United States.

The requirement will take effect on Jan. 5, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which made the announcement. Officials at the agency say they are deeply concerned over China’s lack of transparency about its outbreak — and, in particular, its failure to track and sequence variants and subvariants that are circulating within its borders.

C.D.C. officials said the requirement for testing will apply to air passengers regardless of their nationality and vaccination status. It will also apply to travelers coming from China who enter the United States through a third country, or who connect through the United States to other destinations. Italy and Japan have already imposed similar restrictions, and India has mandated negative Covid-19 test reports and random screening at airports for passengers arriving from China, Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong and Thailand.

January 5 will surely be mostly symbolic, i.e. way too late to make any real difference.

I've lived and worked in China 100's of times since 1995 - the people are NOT the CCP.

Not only did they hitch their wagon, they got on their knees and showed a lot of love towards the CCP

We've been saying that for decades, but sadly it hasn't gained any traction.

Right, The CCP caved in due to a few thousand people protesting and covid transmission does not already exist outside of China and oh, never mind about the XBB 1.5 variant now dominant through the US.

The PRC’s economy with the truth has cost hundreds of thousands of lives lost. Jobs gone. Economy’s (individual and governmental). stuffed. And no one holding them to account.
The lack of empathy is truly evident here. Sad world we live in.
