The Chief Executive, Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor, recently stated on her Facebook page that “Hong Kong’s epidemic prevention and control work is based on scientific evidence and evidence.” She also claimed that the measures were effective on the grounds that the number of confirmed cases was lower than that of many countries.) Our epidemic prevention measures are of course effective, but it is definitely not Carrie Lam's credit.
It is definitely a serious lack of the government to not close the border, to collect masks, and to change the order. It's just that we still remember the photo retouching service painful lessons of SARS in 2003 - 299 Hong Kong people died and the society came to a standstill - so that we are better prepared this time. The government has failed to take the lead in epidemic prevention work, and rely on medical care, businessmen and civilians to help themselves. How helpless the people of Hong Kong are.
We are indeed doing very well, better than neighboring countries, because we have almost achieved "masks for all"! Over the past month, at least 95% of people on the streets have worn masks, which not only prevents the infection of the new coronavirus, but also greatly reduces the infection of other upper respiratory tract viruses. It is in this way that society can maintain a limited functioning and not come to a complete standstill.
