    That is clearly the way the world has moved and I was not premature, in fact bang on the money (thus far- nothing is guaranteed 'forever') as cases, deaths and hospitalisations have only consistenlty declined since I made my pronouncement on behalf of the entire world. (you're welcome, no need to thank me)

    You give a shit about it, I can feel the seething resentment that my maskless "shit eating grin" is big enough to see across town.

    And yes, too busy making hay thanks.... when I fly out of HK there will be no quarantine on my horizon.

    Citation still needed... anecdotal reports of reduced measures are not definitive proof of your assertions.

    I am as fed up with COVID as the next keyboard warrior but you don't help yourself by making unfounded claims.

    That it is accepted that evidence on the ground is compelling enough to draw the conclusion that the pandemic is over is ample for me thanks.

    That covid has melted into the background doesn't sell papers (generate impressions) which is exactly why those seeking to be contrarian demand such proof.

    I assume that unlike the box-o-rocks, you're smart enough to know politicians have little to gain by such announcements, but they have been made in some places none-the-less, whilst in many more, actions speak louder than words.

    By all means, wait for the WHO to validate what I proclaimed a year earlier, but you'll be amongst the last to be plugged in if you do.

    [Was supposed to quote Coolboy's post.]

    I reread Aramis' post and I have to agree with you. Aramis is only stating the regular measures that most governments are recommending, not necessarily his own regiment, although wise things to do aside from the glove wearing.

    For anyone following HK's strategy, these last fews days have shown that our strategy is not just wrong, it's also cruel and capricous. The insistence that the poor sods on the BA flight all extend their quarantine hotels by a day (while in a place with very limited communication) after they spent 40 hours on the plane was bad enough. Rumours have it that some who could not extend are now in Penny Bay (I have not verified such rumours). In other news, a guy who took a step outside his door to put his large bags of rubbish into the corridor is now also in Penny Bay, after the Marriott Courtyard staff took it upon themselves to send the CCTV video to the health dept. What kind of moronic response is it, for someone just putting their rubbish out to get sent to Penny Bay? The punishment does not fit the crime. The staff at Marriott have totally destroyed their brands reputation for quality. Nobody here applies any compassion or common sense. They seem to have totally forgotten that these are INNOCENT PEOPLE who have committed NO CRIMES and are also all RESIDENTS OF HONG KONG - not some kind of alien scum. It's disgusting to watch. (And hard not to watch, when you sit in a quarantine hotel with nothing better to do all day).

    Not forgetting the French woman with appendicitis, that was torture.
