Even just saying you'll do it will surely reduce the numbers out and about (even if it isn't thoroughly policed).
    The saddest part about all of it is the need for legislation because of people’s own stupidity. LKF is much too easy a target to say it is all the expats fault and there is nothing that can be done about that except muse about the complainants in their glass houses.

    Or of course wait for the inevitable MK outbreak to happen in a locals bar

    Wow. Absolutely rattled here. Citing lancet seems a world a way.

    I completely disagree with this. Technocrats have deep technical expertise in their area (hence the name). They can be effective- the current obvious example of recent times is Angela Merkel.

    HK government members would more accurately described as sycophants.

    Tbf. How long were you expecting people to sit at home for (whether expat or local). It was mentioned back in Jan that realistically people would last a couple of months or so and then want to return to some sort of normality. The UK and Italy will be no different. Just now the UK is very much "this is great lol Joe Wilks did a youtube lol"..
    Give it antoher 4 weeks and see if they're in such good humour.

    Also the weather was shite here after the first outbreak. Nice out now. That has an impact for sure. I remember the first really nice day in late feb and it was noticeably busier in parks and on the street.

    No one was being forced to stay at home just work from home and practice some social distancing. Not the end of the world, certainly not for those privileged enough to have a good home with a reasonable amount of space.

    But to avoid frequenting crowded bars, during a pandemic, seems like a no brainer. Not to do so was/is extremely selfish and shows a cold indifference to what's been happening all over the world.

    Sorry your bubble was burst, welcome to the reality many of us excepted long ago.

    Love how you had to squeeze in the caveat that it's ok for locals to ignore social distancing norms because of...small kitchens, right? Was that it? Have you personally measured the size of flat of every non-Chinese person who was infected at LKF that weekend?

    Seems like a no-brainer, and yet for hundreds of people it clearly wasn't. Many of whom will be no less intelligent/well paid/well thought of/loving family members than you are, regardless of their background. Perhaps they have a different value system from you though. If the government close bars, restaurants, clubs, wherever else, then problem solved. People won't be able to go. Until then, people will judge potential consequences and then exercise personal choice. For better or worse. If you practice your own social distancing properly, you have nothing to worry about.

    And another school yard fight. Guys, people come here for news, not for your petty back and forth arguments. Could you please start a thread for that or argue via pm..

    I'd be fine if they just did take away/delivery like back home.
    Why should eveyone else have to sacriifce for your comfort and pleasure?

    Agreed. It's pointless. Some people only care about themselves. @shri please move to discussion or delete
