    3900 a day does not strike me as all that compelling to work over the most important holidays in the Chinese calendar, from 5pm to 2am, in hazmat suits in presumably high infection risk areas.

    You think retired civil servants will throw themselves headover heels to work in high risk areas on the biggest HK/Chinese Holiday of the year for less than 16k?

    I know those fuckers wont lift a finger, why should they when their bank accounts are already bursting from pensions and any kick backs they managed to squirrel away. Im just thinking the govt could offer that money to people who would line up to do the job even for 4 days.

    Bloomberg report dated 31st December.



    The fundamental contradiction remains you can’t both live with Covid and reopen to a zero-Covid Mainland.
    You seem to be forgetting that the mainland doesn't have 'zero covid', and it's not going to be too long before it doesn't even have low covid.

    HK has already, backtracked on that lie, and is implementing policies that render it utterly impossible to return to anything resembling zero covid, dynamic or otherwise.

    The longer this goes on, the more it's going to become apparent that covid can be slowed and nothing more.

    But with brakes this inefficient it will soon literally make no difference whether they press the peddle/pull the lever or not, acceleration will barely change.

    Clearly it's not designed to strike you, it'll hook a fair few retired cops and their ilk though.

    Yet more waste of public funds trying to cocoon those wastes-of-space.
