[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.

China's Nat'l Health Commission announces drop in new #Covid_19 infections outside Hubei 15 consecutive days. It's too early to be confident. Data may be flawed due to weak surveillance or change of case definition.
I have a much more fund'l concern. Prevailing narrative from China & @WHO is spread outside Hubei is all we care about. That's flat out wrong. Yes, we want to stop spread, but must start caring a lot more re plight of >50 mil in Hubei.
Ongoing threat to physical & mental health in Hubei is unconscionable- trapped together & fearful. Moreover once #Quarantine ends people in Hubei will flee. During Influenza pandemic, 1918 quarantines delayed spread, but over time made little difference.

I love the huge variety of "novel coronavirus 2019" images conjured up by science. The number & density of doodlehangers keeps changing....sometimes it's only 15, sometimes 50, sometimes 100s! Look at this thread! #coronavavirus #photooftheday #Contagion
China on "lockdown" due to one of these pictures, but no-one is sure exactly which one.

#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.
