  1. “Oops, some patients were accidentally discharged even though they tested positive, we’re gonna have to put the city on lockdown. No more protests, everyone stay inside”

  2. At first, I was very confused as to why people would protest the opening of health clinics. Then I read on to find out about 24 hour security, only being able to enter or leave with approval, and the lack of communication with the public before starting to set up these clinics. The government really does whatever it wants …

  3. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.hongkongfp.com/2020/02/17/hundreds-hong-kong-protest-plans-open-coronavirus-clinics-residential-areas/) reduced by 75%. (I’m a bot)

    > Protests unfolded around Hong Kong over the weekend against government plans to set up designated coronavirus clinics near residential areas.

    > The demonstrations came as the Hospital Authority announced that 18 out-patient clinics in 17 districts would be transformed into clinics to treat people with suspected Covid-19 infections.

    > The Hospital Authority condemned vandalism to two clinics during Saturday's protests – the Tai Po Jockey Club General Out-patient Clinic and Tsuen Wan's Mrs Wu York Yu General Out-patient Clinic: "The malicious behaviours [affected] the operations of clinics and patient safety," a press release read. Lawmaker Claudia Mo, who attended a demonstration in Cheung Sha Wan, told HKFP that the government could "Use other more desirable sites, including PLA barracks.”
