    Economically, things are not looking good in the next 6 to 12 months for Hong Kong.

    Many more shops will close; jobs will be lost....

    HKSAR's government's fiscal position isn't great either.

    What further relief measures should there be by the HKSAR government?

    Another round of cash handout of $10,000? perhaps more?

    industries-specific assistance?

    issue long-term bonds (HK$70 billion) while our credit rating is still good?

    issue more i-bonds?

    borrow money (HK$70 billion) directly from the Central People's Government?

    what do you think?

    I would suggest building a big island off Lantau to put all the poor people.

    Why on earth should anyone still getting their regular salary get a handout?

    HK needs a proper unemployment system/ safety net and any handouts should go to those individuals in need and should be carefully targeted as would any cash going towards industries in trouble,; making sure the funds were used to keep/hire back employees on payroll and not for golden parachutes for useless twats at the top.

    Agreed on hospitals/health care, nurses, doctors, and front-line workers should all get a pay bump or one time bonus for all their hard work and additional money invested to deal with future flare ups and/or other (gulp) new outbreaks.
