Watch for some problem, reaction, solution from the CCP.

Authorities said in a statement Saturday that an area comprising 16 buildings in Yau Tsim Mong will be locked down until all residents have undergone tests. Residents will not be allowed to leave their homes until they have received their test results to prevent cross-infection.

News of the area lockdown was leaked at noon yesterday. When authorities were moving in the area last night, residents were seen packing up and moving out. Staff working in shop fled, abandoning shops.

I'm torn. Sewage testing is a valid health testing technique and Yau Tsim Mong is extremely densely populated.

Take the test. See your results. Don't cause trouble over that. It is better to know for you, your family, and your neighbors. Yau Tsim Mong is full of tiny spaces around every corner, on every level, of each building.

They timed it for a weekend, though Hong Kong weekends aren't any less busy with people going to work. This could be a 100% health/COVID related effort.

If I were a high-profile democratic protestor/leader, I'd have left already.

Hong Kong water system isn't trusted by anyone there. They all drink bottled water.
