The anti-epidemic measures have been maintained for nearly three years, and many netizens welcome them. However, some people have rational discussions, thinking that the recent daily confirmed cases are about 20,000. Increasing the burden on the medical system is also concerned about the increase in the number of severe illnesses or deaths among high-risk groups such as the elderly.

Regarding the abolition of mandatory nucleic acid testing for entry, and instead issuing health advice to people entering the country to quickly test themselves for up to 5 days, some netizens believe that this requirement is useless, because not everyone will be self-disciplined.

Some people hope that the mask order can also be revoked as soon as possible, and the Director of the Medical and Health Bureau, Lu Chongmao, reiterated at the press conference that since Hong Kong is in the peak period of respiratory infections, the mask order must be maintained in order to avoid the double attack of the new crown and winter flu. .
