“…infections below 800 for first time in 9 weeks” | SCMP

Government will no doubt claim its because of our Zero Covid Policy restrictions. It would have happened anyway. The shooting up, the shooting down. How to know that? Because that’s the way it’s been in every single other country in the world. As the WHO shows in latest figures.

Doesn’t matter which area of the world, which country, how many restrictions, how few restrictions, how stringent, how lax  — all the same. Up… and … down. Why should Hong Kong have been any different?

ADDED: Oxford University Stringency tracker confirms it — low to zero correlation between stringency of government NPI measures and outcomes of cases and deaths per million.
