    I'm sure the travel agent constituency has some sway. They probably hand out blue LED lights that you wear about your neck.
    It's SCIENCE man. The group tour staff can wave the covid away.

    It's a whole bunch of things. There hasn't been any logic in Hong Kong for a long time.

    One thing that comes to mind is racism. One rule for the Chinese, another one for 'foreigners'.

    Violent Protests Erupt at Apple’s Main iPhone Plant in China


    By
    Bloomberg NewsNovember 23, 2022 at 11:48 AM GMT+8Updated onNovember 23, 2022 at 1:21 PM GMT+8



    Hundreds of workers at Apple Inc.’s main iPhone-making plant in China clashed with security personnel, as tensions boiled over after almost a month under tough restrictions intended to quash a Covid outbreak.


    Workers at the Foxconn Technology Group plant streamed out of dormitories in the early hours of Wednesday, jostling and pushing past the white-clad guards they vastly outnumbered, according to videos sent by a witness to portions of the protest. Several white-suited people pummeled a person lying on the ground with sticks in another clip. Onlookers yelled “fight, fight!” as throngs of people forced their way past barricades. At one point, several surrounded an occupied police car and began rocking the vehicle while screaming incoherently.


    The protest started overnight over unpaid wages and fears of spreading infection, according to the witness, asking to remain anonymous for fear of repercussions. Several workers were injured and anti-riot police arrived on the scene Wednesday to restore order, the person added.


    In one video, irate workers surrounded a silent, downcast manager in a conference room to voice grievances and question their Covid test results. It wasn’t clear when the meeting took place.


    “I’m really scared about this place, we all could be Covid positive now,” a male worker said. “You are sending us to death,” another person said.

    Seems some places of employment in China are more akin to prison work camps. And this isn’t even considering the Uighers!

    Nothing a good dose of Lei Feng spirit won’t solve.

    China may have 'passed the point of no return' as Covid infections soar


    As of Monday, about 412 million people were affected by lockdown measures in mainland China, according to Nomura estimates. That’s up from 340 million the prior week, the report said.
