Professor Lung's strategy: Hong Kong explained the re-introduction of quarantine - with a "gentle regime"

Hong Kong is receiving news of a decision by the authorities to return the quarantine regime, which was canceled some time ago, after a decrease in the number of detected cases of COVID-19 infection in China.


The reports say that when the authorities decided to return the residents of the city to work again, after a short time the doctors had concerns because of the excessive crowding of people in public transport, at workplaces, and in other places of mass residence. On this basis, Hong Kong officials decided to take the advice of an expert in virology.

Particular attention was paid to this fact in Europe. In particular, the Italian Corriere della Sera writes:

Now in Hong Kong, they are afraid of the possible return of coronavirus and a rapid increase in the incidence. They are afraid of a new phase of the spread of a serious infection. However, they decided on a new tightening. But this quarantine is different from the previous one. It will not be a complete blockage of anything and everything.

It is noted that for residents of Hong Kong it is forbidden to visit cafes and restaurants, other entertainment venues in the evening and at night. The regime is established, which can be described as "home-work-home" with some indulgences, with a sparing mode.

In the daytime, visits to entertainment places are allowed, based on the norm - a company of no more than 4 people at one table. At the same time, the distance between the tables increases.

It is reported that such a strategy for the gradual return of Hong Kong to a "normal life" was developed by Gabriel Lung, a specialist in medicine in the profile department of the University of Hong Kong. Lung in Hong Kong is known for being at the forefront of confronting the SARS virus in 2002-2003.

Professor Lung:

We must go through several different cycles, alternating measures of total deterrence and relaxation for citizens. This will help return with minimal risk to normal life amid the search for a vaccine.

The material says that this approach will help to resist the return of the flash or completely prevent it.

From the material:

Lung’s strategy will delay the restoration of coronavirus until at least October. A vaccine may appear during this time.

    Hong Kong's strategy for a phased return to a “normal life”

    Good strategy. Avoids a repeat epidemic.

    I think it's not a virus. They want to squeeze the local Maidan.

      Why not. Interesting on the other hand. Is there anything else to work in Hong Kong (international banks, corporate headquarters, etc.), after a year of unrest? Not all investors have escaped yet? Any Maidan, as it does not contribute to improving the economic situation.

    This is quite logical. It would be possible to abruptly quarantine measures in one case if a vaccine is found, people are vaccinated, there are no new diseases for any reasonable period of time.
    With a perfectly good development of the situation, I think that we also need to understand and get ready for a month or two at least a strict restriction in movement and communication. Only reasonably and soberly, without panic.

    И все затихло, всё пришло в норму. Куда подевались летние побоища в Гонконге желтые каски, ошеломляющая поддержка Запада, и вдруг всё прекратилось, в один момент. Митингов нет, провокаторов нет, а Запад вообще забыл о Гонконге. Как бы то ни было, а революционная спесь прошло. "Любовь прошла, завяли помидоры".

      arrogance passed

      And the Maidan people returned to the extreme ... That's what the coronary virus does!

        Something like this, well, here I can only recall one slogan that was on all banknotes in the USSR.

          remember one slogan

          Вы на тему "майданутые всех стран соединяйтесь"? Так они и так работают из единого центра. Уши госдепа торчат из любого майдана.

      Where did the summer helmets in Hong Kong go to the yellow helmets, the stunning support of the West, and suddenly everything stopped, in one moment.

      So the protesters did not list the salary, not until them yet
