    If you can guarantee that the owner of the QR is not going to attempt to check in at the same time, then that risk is entirely eliminated. But even if you can't guarantee that I predict that the risk is also non existent if coupling with a burner.. You can scan your own QR code and get the "bing bong" and then immediately scan it again 10 seconds later and get another "bing bong" and therefore you will be able to do that in 5 mins, an hour, 12 hours etc. Thus the vaccine pass has no record of when you leave.

    Does anybody think that this system is backed by AI so that it can flag an alert if ya QR checks in in central and then 15 mins later checks in in Yuen Long? Even if it could, is someone going to check the CCTV in both locations after the fact and try to figure out what occurred? Is there even CCTV? Are its time codes synced perfectly with the vaccine scanner? Can they void the QR of a legit user and re-issue another one? If they can, how long does that take?

    As for being raided - I've never been in an establishment that has been raided (Has anyone here?). Is it still happening? (I guess not). What's the procedure for checking sign in's vs patrons on site?
    Its far simpler to just take a screenshot of your own blue code before you turn amber. No friends required.

    Firing Lo would be a very easy way for Jon Lee and Paul Chan to save face and go straight to opening up.
    Given that Lee/Lo/Chan all were picked and answer to the same boss it wouldn't matter at all. All this waffling is just because they await further instructions from Sai Wan/up north.

    At this point, all speculation is pointless.

    All depends on what Xi sees best.

    Yeah... Just wanted to give it a try. Was out for a coffee with a friend, so we had to sit outside, sweating like a pig...

    It's still crap.
    But it will be amazing for Japan, Thailand, Korea! Imagine how many HKers will be off out of here once no hotel quarantine?

    Only so many staycations you can handle.

    Not insignificant numbers, but not that many.

    Asia's tourism boom was built on mainland Chinese tourists the past decade or so.
