looks like HK will be overrun with more mainlanders to compensate the loss of people
Or maybe I'm just full of shit.

The pandemic is not a primary reason for me to want to leave, although the way the government has used it as an excuse to trample on basic rights is a clear red flag. Feeling like I'm stuck in Hong Kong because I'm not willing to take the time, expense and risk of the entry and quarantine system has definitely made me want to go anywhere and there is almost certainly bleed-though to wanting to leave for good.
To put it another way, if I'd been able to travel for leisure and/or to see my family this year, I probably wouldn't feel quite so strongly about HK no longer being a place I can happily live long-term.
Re-opening the border to the mainland requires a 0-case policy. This means closing the borders even further to the rest of the world (i.e. matching China's border restrictions).Original Post Deleted
That's not a choice that many will want in Hong Kong.
