Meanwhile, Carrie Lam said closing border is discriminatory.
And by doing so, Carrie Lam discriminates all Hongkongers who reside in Hong Kong.
No one ever said that closing the borders is discriminatory towards mainland Chinese. The way that the border control depends on the "trustworthiness" of said mainland Chinese travellers is problematic. On the contrary, if mainland visitors would actually be honest about their travels, the public wouldn't have been so incensed. Closing the borders effectively gets rid of the problem, and prevents uncontrolled spread of the virus.
If she's worried that closing the borders would hurt the economy, well, not closing it certainly isn't doing anyone any favours. She should really take a page out of Singapore's book.
Quoted from the article:
Song said while the tourism and retail industries would be affected by the lack of Chinese visitors, the government’s precautionary measures would maintain business and consumer confidence in Singapore.
Song added that not having Chinese tourists in Singapore meant residents and other travellers would be able to get on with life as usual, and that would also limit the impact on tourism.
It's been a week since talks of demanding the borders closed and I'm so sick of the stubbornness of this puppet.
As a result of the declaration, foreign nationals who have traveled to China in the last two weeks and aren't immediate family members of U.S. citizens or permanent residents will be temporarily banned from entering the country, according to Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar. Azar also announced that anyone entering the U.S. who has been in China's Hubei province in the last two weeks will be subject to a two-week quarantine.
If someone really wanted to do real damage and on purpose as a bioweapon. Then spreading it during the Super Bowl in 2 days would be the PERFECT opportunity to do so. Luckily those kinda people and governments don't exist.
In the Philippines, the propaganda they're (pro-government trolls) using is the "humanity" and Trip to Busan logic - like we should let the people in even if they might be zombies. The propagandists are appealing to the humanity of Filipinos to not ban Chinese tourists because of the logic that we should help those who may be fleeing China (even if they may have the virus). They think China wouldn't close its own borders if this virus happened elsewhere. Unfortunately, our government thinks just like Carrie Lam. Some Filipino trolls are even accusing their fellow Filipinos of racism for promoting a temporary ban for Chinese tourists.
Come to think of it maybe this "discriminatory" / "racist" propaganda is coming straight from the Chinese government. It's just odd that they have the same excuse to not implement a temporary travel ban.
She’s still trying to play her politics in favor of Beijing. When will the rest of the HKers realize that her and her administration does NOT have the best interest of the people she serves. Such stark differences between how she handled the protest and how weak she is with this viral outbreak.... #motherofmutualdestruction
A spokeswoman for the Chinese foreign ministry, Hua Chunying, struck back on Friday at the United States’ decision, calling it an unfriendly act at a difficult time for China.
“True feeling shines through in hardship,” Ms. Hua said. “Many countries have shown their support and help for China’s fight again the epidemic. By contrast, the United States’ words and deeds are not in keeping with the facts and less are they in keeping with friendship.”
Is there some minimum cunt requirement you have to fulfill to work for the communist party? What "friendship" is she talking about? Incessant attempts to steal intellectual property, espionage, and regular threats extortion and intimidation of anything and anyone that sympathizes w/TIbet/Taiwan/Uyghurs/HK? THAT friendship?
Get fucked CCP. You already closed your own province borders to protect against the virus, other countries are simply doing the same thing.
This woman is completely nuisance. She is making a joke of herself showing her IQ is below average, meanwhile she is risking and harming hkers’ lives. How misfortune it is for Hkers to havr her as the chief executive. Mind you, this woman is not elected by Hkers. This woman is appointed by Xinnie the pooh.
