I remember when I was in Singapore during SARS. An infected family went to see a doctor. He said "you have/probably have (I don't remember which one it was) SARS. Please sit on that bench outside my office. I call an ambulance. Don't move. They will be here in 20 minutes." He went out 10 minutes later to check, and instead of sitting on the bench they went to the local hawker centre.
It's not the country, it's the people. If you are dealing with idiots you have to take drastic actions.
Many many part time / zero contract hour staff across HK are seeing their businesses destroyed over the last six months. They are not getting any subsidies either.
Pain is across the spectrum. Not just teachers.
Hong Kong is a battery farm for humans. Store, tax, bleed, repeat. It fails if the chickens boycott. If this system gets looked at again, maybe there's some positive in that down the road.
