    Now 250 can gather maskless indoors. What about outdoors?

    WTF is wrong with some of these fucking reporters .... rando from RTHK suggesting that the relaxation is sending a wrong message at this time.

    Open air with more space is clearly more deadly. The virus may be spread to unknowing bystanders and also sucked into AC ventilation systems resulting in even more bystanders catching the virus. Also, outdoor air is nice and fresh, which keeps the virus live longer.

    I think I can land a consultant job under DOH.

    Not that anybody is complaining,

    1 Year ago - very low cases, very high restrictions
    Now - very high and increasing cases (relatively), removing restrictions..

    Only in Hong Kong..
