I agree that measures should be adapted to the situations. We've been at this for a couple of months in HK and the clusters of cases have come from large social gatherings(weddings, bars, churches) and not from taking public transport(apart from the returnees on planes) or places of leisure where social distancing is fairly easy like gyms, cinemas, hiking trails, parks or bowling alleys. Comparing with the UK, Italy or the Phil isn't really relevant at this point. Singapore would be a better point of reference and they have more cases than HK.
Things are not perfect but so far, HK isn't part of the problem and has been at least maintaining a lid on it and the current resurgence of cases have nothing to do with gyms, cinemas, hiking trails, golf courses or bowling alleys having been open.
