    special treatment for tourists proposed

    If Ducky gets his way, there will be fewer tourists, he wants all tourists to be screened on arrival, masked at all times, and tracked, plus extra special screening from disease hotspots like Africa and the Middle East

    To be fair, it is not our northern brothers and sisters, so the impact will be zero...

    In the article published in Ming Pao, the experts also suggested screening tourists from disease hotspots like Africa and the Middle East where outbreaks of Ebolavirus and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome often occur.

    no discrimination - tourists to be masked and tracked

    They also believe tourists should wear a mask at all times and undertake epidemiological tracking, and authorities should minimize exemptions on border controls so as to prevent infections from entering Hong Kong.
    I doubt it will happen, targeting visitors from middle east while CE is right now busy courting middle east money is not a smart idea. my best guess he is fishing for more funding

    That guy needs a muzzle.

    Coming into Taipei recently (where they still have a whole bunch of covid-esque control channels, posters, segregated walkways, and gowned people with thermometers) was really triggering. It's bad enough here already as you land in surely the only place in the world still talking about monkeypox on every flight.
