Let's try and get this back on topic.
Now this chart is about a week out of date and can't find an updated one. But it strikes me that Hong Kong seems quite low in terms of tests done per million people. Doesn't fill me with confidence that the numbers we are going by are anywhere near accurate.
A nurse who I know well tells me she's never seen hospitals this full. Overall, something fishy is going on. Of those very few tests per million, a large portion of them are people coming from overseas to the airport with no symptoms.
This is a great policy which I support, but it means the stats are skewed to suit the Chinese government's agenda that we should blame the foreigners.
Most alarming is that they are NOT applying this compulsory testing and quarantine rule to those returning from China. They are literally the only country exempt from this widespread rule. Tell me that isn't for political reasons and to save face, please.
The numbers are being skewed to suit an agenda. People are not getting tests who should. And those tested generally come from a nice little pocket of people who make perfect scapegoats for a "it's not us. It's them" agenda
