Why is Hong Kong’s coronavirus ‘vaccine bubble’ plan already drawing flak?
Hong Kong’s latest efforts to incentivise coronavirus vaccinations have proved unpopular with some.
Covid-19 contagion among vaccinated individuals is still being studied but the likelihood of post-vaccination spreading is likely to be reduced.
Hong Kong will allow locally based, unvaccinated cargo flight crews to skip quarantine if they have stayed in six Asia-Pacific countries deemed lower risk, while fully vaccinatedaircrews will also be allowed to bypass isolation, the Post has learned.The new policy, seen in a document obtained by the Post, was revealed hours after the government on Wednesday night tightened criteria for banning flights as well as entry rules for passengers from high-risk countries where new coronavirus
variants have been identified.
