Operation Santa Claus

Front page of the South China Morning Post today. 

One thing I immediately notice: some are masked some not. The masked are all men. The unmasked are both women. Why? Clearly no one said “you must wear a mask” otherwise they’d all be. So must have been individual choice. And yet in Hong Kong we have achieved the nirvana of Zero Covid. We have had zero local cases for over three months. So, again, what’s going on with all the men masking up and the women not? One of life’s little mysteries. 

Operation Santa Claus has been going for 34 years. An initiative of the Post to help the underprivileged in Hong Kong. We support it. It does good work.

But why the split message on masks? I don’t get it.
