Cathay Pacific has a new video with people showing tattoos on their arms, repeating over an over “show me some” as part of a new “arm up, let’s fly again!” campaign meant to encourage employee vaccination.
The planned travel bubble between Hong Kong and New Zealand has been suspended in light of new mini-outbreaks of Covid-19 cases in Singapore.
Hong Kong is generally using both the Chinese-made Sinovac vaccine, which works as a vaccine passport for mainland China but has low demonstrated effectiveness, and the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. Approximately 16% of Hong Kong residents have received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine, about a third the vaccination rate of the U.S.
Since ‘One Country, Two Systems’ has been largely obliterated I’m surprised the airline – which received a state bailout – is merely ‘encouraging’ vaccination, rather than telling employees ‘do it or you’ll be considered disloyal to the State’.
