  • Hongkonger Sit Pui-yu, 72, is staunchly against taking a Covid-19 vaccine, even if his refusal means he will no longer be able to dine out or shop for food in wet markets.
  • Sit, who is single and lives alone in a public housing flat in Wong Tai Sin, said his decision was due to his lack of confidence in the government.“The government has never truly taken consideration of the elderly in every single measure and policy it has carried out since the start of the pandemic,” he said.
