    Very sad how times have changed. The pearl of the orient is now a wart.

    His wife got it early in the pandemic as well, would be interesting to see what would happen here if leaders tested positive (assuming it would be made public) presser from hospital covid ward?

    Remember those Hong Kong students in the UK complaining about not getting food delivered to their door or something when they were isolating?

    It's really damning that, despite having two years to prepare and all the other countries' experiences to learn from, that an 88 year old woman could get treated like this.

    This is the reasoning behind the decision to open the borders from the IATF-EID which makes the decisions on handling covid in the Philippines.

    Japan cuts quarantine period for int'l travelers to 7 days, from Jan 29th 2022.
    (It was cut from 14 days to 10 days only 2 weeks ago)

    Still no non-residents though, almost two years with closed borders now.

    Manila and surrounding provinces eased to alert level 2 from Tuesday.

    The wave is now in the other provinces. A couple of weeks and it will be over I think.

    On the other hand, Blighty and Scandinavia rule the world once again with regards to knuckling down and getting on with it with forward thinking policy.
    I think china is thinking, in the worst case scenario, their robots can replace their humans, and are even better because they don't need hospitalization or quarantine. better to just shunt all these lousy humans off to a iso facility. moreover it's a best kept secret automation saved chinese manufacturing

    have you seen previews of the winter Olympics? there are virtually no humans to be seen, just drones and automatons and save for the (very) few athletes competing

    It's pretty sad when even Philippines is ahead of HK in a commonsense policy.

    It would be sad if any country was worse than HK for commonsense policies
