Coronavirus is changing Hong Kong residents' daily routine
- By: SamuelMoEdited by: Carol Yuan
Coronavirus is spreading in Hong Kong. Since the Lunar New Year, local residents have been searching for surgical masks, hand sanitizers and disinfectant. Three weeks after the lunar new year, the supply of face masks is still under the demand. The Hong Kong government tried to purchase surgical masks from other parts of the world but they still cannot provide a stable supply of masks. Some Hong Kong residents are panicking about the lack of face masks and spending hours queuing up for a box of masks. Some organisations distribute free face masks to elderlies in communities. The situation on valentine’s day is still the same.
