[No one can fight an endless war with limited weapons]

1/ Unfortunately, this piece appeals to identity politics & loses touch with reality in #HK, especially #HKGov's messy mishandling over the past few weeks. It's #quarantine rule is entirely toothless.…
2/ Though people returned from #China are required to be quarantined, they can actually leave home during 14-day incubation. Although inflected with #COVID19, a Wuhan couple were also found fled from hospital to escape from quarantine.
3/ All these mean the concern over community spread is real. And concerns grow when our adjacent province, Guangdong, is now the second hardest-hit after Hubei. Don’t forget, over 80 cities in #China have already been sealed to stop the virus spread.

#Hongkong’s new #quarantine rules are entirely toothless! New measures rely heavily on the self-discipline of the targeted people? #WuhanCoronavirusOutbreak

1/ Even though the rule has been put in place today, there is no staff informing newcomers about the new measure.
2/ Even though #HKgov claims that 14days quarantine is mandatory, new arrivers are told that they can “go out” during the quarantine periods so long as they wear masks. It puts into doubt the effectiveness of quarantine policy as it means #coronavirus can spread in communities.
3/ Although #HKgov warns to impose imprisonment and fines on violators, such punitive measures are only supported by daily phone calls and random checks. Even if quarantined people violate the rules, they will be only warned verbally.

1/ It's terribly alarming that #HKGov barred Kenneth Roth from #HongKong for no reason. It well illustrates how #Hkgov now cooperates with #CCP to deliberately undermine our international human rights system.
2/ That is how #China’s global censorship regime works. First UK activist @benedictrogers, followed by reporters like @VJMallet and academics like @DanGarrett97, and now even US human rights advocates @KenRoth were denied entry.
3/ Bit by bit, #Beijing tightens its red line on #Hongkong, isolates this international city from the world, and puts #onecountrytwosystems in peril. The case is the best indicator of #Beijing ’s authoritarian expansion and weakening human rights situation in #China.
